Holidays - The Christmas and New Year

All I wanted is to be home at Christmas. And I feel the spirit of Christmas stays in my heart. Even for the next days, the ordinary situation that we have, we always wish that it should be Christmas. The day when sharing blessings and love is boundless.

We glad and we are excited before calendar hits month of December. Good thing is that there are too many holidays to celebrate. There is a celebration for the Thanksgiving Day. Here in the Philippines we used to celebrate Bonifacio Day, an honor for Andres Bonifacio just the 30th of November.After Christmas, we then celebrate Rizal Day. Today, December 30 would be that day. We honored Dr. Jose Rizal, our national hero for what he did. He fought for our freedom. The days after the said celebration is the New Year's Day. Have you already prepared your New Year's Resolution?

People share many of the same reason to celebrate, even if each culture does it in its own unique way. But there are some holidays that only some people take part in. Read and join in the fun!
