They say that Filipinos celebrate Christmas early. But I’m starting to think that we just like to prepare for the holidays in September because we’ve lived here long enough to know that December can be a nightmare. People are getting their gifting lists ready to avoid the impending traffic but everyone seems to be thinking the same thing. Christmas is here — as well as the traffic that comes with it.
Aside from preparing gifts, I’ve also heard about friends prepping their bodies for the Christmas food intake. Once your titos and titas text-invite you to the annual family Christmas party, you know you’re in for another night of lechon and queso de bola. I don’t know about you, but having a buffer for the parties is always a good idea. Plus, there’s nothing wrong with being active once in a while, especially when you’re going to be stuck in traffic for about four hours every day.
