Wow it's December once again!Time flew so fast and it's Christmas once again. I'll be returning home to spend the holiday season with my dear family because I have no reason to celebrate it here in the city. During Christmas season, I always try to go back to my childhood years to reminisce good memories. My most memorable experience is the caroling time with my friends, after the evening mass at Christmas we would roam around the neighborhood and do caroling and we're given native foods in return and we would divide these among ourselves and sat at the beach while eating then wait for the beautiful sunrise to come.

When I was 6 years old, I knew that Santa Claus was real, because I had the utmost confidence in My parents. At school that Christmas, I heard the kids say, "There was no Santa." I said, "That's not so, because my Dad and Mom said Santa was real!" That night when I came home, I told my Mom what the Kids had said. Then she told me the truth, and I was aghast, and horrified, that there was no Santa Claus, but even more,that My parents had lied to me, and could never again be trusted to tell the absolute truth! My most memorable Christmas experience, happened over 70 years ago.

Me too, I grew up believing Santa Claus is real. It was only in High School that I knew he is not real but then I refused to believe that he is just a fiction, I always believed he is real, Santa Claus could personify other people including our parents so we just believe that Santa is everywhere.

There are so many Christmas memories that I could choose from so it really is hard to settle on just one. I really enjoyed Christmas at my grandmother's house when she was alive because despite the fact that she was in her 80s, we never had a Christmas celebration that didn't include some kind of gag gifts. Even the year that she passed away, she had decided that she wanted to give all of her grandsons towels that were labelled for butt and face. My mother went ahead and gave those gifts that year in my grandmother's name.
