I am away from my family. i am abroad studying and it will simply cost me a lot if i go home. so i decided to stay and spend christmas half-the world away from home. how about you? where were you this christmas?

Hi mensab, sad to say but we are not complete this Christmas, because my mother and mother in law are far from us, they are in other countries, its our first time not to be together all. we are just celebrate in our house.

thank you rosema. for us filipinos, Christmas is not the same if not spent with our family, a complete family. we miss the presence of those not with us during the celebration. may i know where your mother is? are you close to her? is this the first time you spent Chrismas without your mother? it must be difficult for you.

This Christmas I am at my house, with my immediate family. We will soon be leaving for my grandparents house- where we will then meet up with my other family memebers. My family is huge, so it is crazy to think that we will all fit under one roof. There are aunts, uncles, cousins, second cousins, and just friends of the family. Merry Christmas to everyone who celebrates it!
