Well, today’s the day of the year that I’ve been waiting for this whole year. It’s a day not only special for me, but to all of us. Yep, it’s Christmas Day, and also my birthday.
Me & my family had to wake up early this morning, since we will celebrate our Christmas not in our home, but in our previous residence in the Philippines, which is in Sta. Mesa, Manila. This is the first time that I hit the road during Christmas Day, so I really felt weird about it, since there are only a few cars around. It was not too long till we reached our old residence in Sta. Mesa at around 10 AM.
As usual, we greeted each other & my relatives with a simple “Merry Christmas!” But, it’s a different thing for me. :D You’re probably wondering why we celebrated Christmas there, while not in our home this time. My relatives who are living there arranged a blessing for the house, since the construction of the house was already finished last time. When the priest arrived, he even said that after 7 years, he was able to bless a house again on Christmas Day.
And so, the Christmas party began. There were still a few of us, since it’s still early in the morning, but we’re happy that we shared some laughs & thoughts. I made fun of my relatives as usual, since I’m EBIL. XD During the party, I only ate a few, since I don’t feel like eating that time (dunno why). A few hours have passed, and some of my other relatives arrived. It was a very happy day, till I felt drowzy all of the sudden. x_x
Hours have passed, and my mom decided that we should all play a game. Party games are really, well, old. But it’s Christmas anyway, and all of us should enjoy it an any way. The first game that we played was the simple “Bring Me” game, followed with “Simon Says” and lastly, “Trip to Jerusalem”. After that, we continued talking, especially within me and my cousins & aunts. As time passed by, I felt drowzier & drowzier. About 5 PM, that’s the time we left, and said goodbye to my relatives. I have to say today is an awesome day, and it’s really a different kind of Christmas I experienced this year.
So now, I finally arrived in our home, still feeling drowzy & such. I helped my parents in arranging the stuffs we brought after we arrived. So now, one more thing to do before my birthday & Christmas ends; OPEN MY PRESENTS!! 8D I oughta open them later when the AC turns on, and I’m not going to tell what they are this time, lol.
Hoping that all of you had a Happy & Merry Christmas. God bless you all, guys! ^_^
