Wow, I can smell it! It's really Christmas, isn't it? And we celebrating this holiday once a year. What does #MerrySMChristmas mean to you? How will you celebrate this yuletide season?
Let the atmosphere be decorated with Christmas lights, lanterns, put your star on the top of your Christmas tree and prepare delicious food for everyone. Embracing children with gifts so they know that spirit of Christmas is about giving and sharing selflessly. Ninong and ninang where are you, anyway?
Have you ever completed the 9 days of Simbang Gabi? Well, for teenagers somehow they interpreted it as "Simbang Tabi". Enjoying yummy "puto bumbong" and hot bibingka right after the mass.
Even when it's not Christmas we should help, compromise and love one another, right?
Any given day can be a Christmas by giving in, helping the less unfortunate even with the little things, for giving love, unity and forgiveness follows.
What Does #MerrySMChristmas Mean To Me?My #MerrySMChristmas means something special. Not only for myself but for everyone. Most importantly for my daughter who motivates me day by day. I don't have enough time for her since I'm busy. As a cellphone technician I have to go to work 6 days a week.
Only during weekend for when me and my family come together. My wife and I used to be on SM every Sunday to attend the early mass with our baby girl Sephil. Christmas is rather a perfect opportunity for us. Our family bonding moment take its place on nearest SM mall. Dining in one of my child's favorite fast food resto then go on shopping right after my pay day.
Watching people buying gifts without worrying how much would they spend. That's how a once in a year holiday changes our normal daily routine into an exciting one—that's Christmas!
It is the visualization of the day or days Jesus Christ's birth. It is a religious event not just happening here in the Philippines but all over the world of Christianity. We Christian believe that Jesus lived and died to save humanity.
- In others, it is a celebration of year ending and welcomes new year with as much excitement and positivity. We believe that this kind of celebration takes away bad luck and letting good luck comes in to ones person's life.
- For practical people, it is a time to relax, enjoy the holidays and family reunion. This is the longest holiday for the whole family even for classmates or 'barkadas'. We are free to take vacation giving us enough time for bonding moment.
- Workaholic like me, this is the time for receiving my 13th month pay and bonuses, if any. I look at these days because I have to pay my debts. Some people may think buying a new house or investment in a complementary businesses. But we know that the majority will be spent for the preparation of Christmas Noche Buena and for New Year's Media Noche.
- For children, Christmas is a gift and pleasure. Admit it, kids are really the star of the Christmas day. This is the time where they receive gifts or new things such as apparel, clothes and toys. This is also the time that their godparents are giving them special present.
