We all know and experience these things but here’s a recount on the signs showing that it’s CHRISTMAS!
Your mom stocks up A LOT of all-purpose cream. And not just that but also spaghetti and tomato sauce.
Starting on the first day of the month, everyone in your house wakes up earlier than usual and do a little bit of decorating the Christmas Tree and cleaning the house.
Midweek of November, your parents dig up those old Jose Marie Chan record and play it early in the morning. EVERYDAY!
You’ll just notice that there are a lot more people in your house now, and they seem a little bit busy. Phone calls, bringing stuff in and out of the house. But it’s fun though.
The only difference is that, September pa lang, ready na!
There’s just lots of foods in your house, especially desserts.
Well, that’s because of:
Starting early September, your mom buys food and other stuff for Christmas. It gets even a lot more every other day.
So I wonder why mom always says: “Wa koy kwarta uy!”
With all those rewiring and installations for the Christmas lights.
(Yeah, great! Daaaaaaad! You just cut off the lights in my room!!!)
Aydaaa! Hibaw-an daan, para na’s iyang uyab!
Your mom’s long awaited moment! Time to dig up those special dining set for the special occasion.
