I can’t believe it’s already December! Time flew by so fast that I didn’t notice my November came in and out so quickly. Maybe it’s because I was too busy the last few months with my wedding preparation. So now that our wedding celebration is over, it’s time to face all my Christmas duties! I feel that I have to rush with my Christmas preparations which I purposely delayed so I could focus on one event at a time.
We all know that Christmas is a really joyous event in our country. Ask any OFW, and they’d want to come home and celebrate Christmas here. They would tell you how warm Christmas is received in every Filipino home. Seasonal food comes out like puto bumbong, bibingka and also macaroni salad.
- To find a common schedule for all. Having families of our own, we have to agree if we would celebrate either on the 24th or 25th. It’s usually my task to call everyone to know their availability.
- To assign each family what to bring. Renting a place is not practical as the money we’re going to pay the restaurant or function room could just be spent with food for sharing. Pot luck is always the name of the game. After finding out common schedule for every family, I also am tasked to assign each family what to bring. Who brings a pork dish? Chicken dish? Pasta? Desserts? Drinks? Macaroni Salad?
- To prepare games or entertainment. Thanks to my mom who enrolled me in singing lessons when I was younger. I usually host the activities or sing while Macky plays the guitar. Our favorite activities or games usually are: Pinoy Henyo, Charades, Exchange Gifts, and of course, raffle!
- To whip up a delicious bowl of everyone’s favorite rich and creamy Lady’s Choice macaroni salad.
