Muling nagbabalik ang Litratong Pinoy.
Tamang-tama ang pagbabalik na ito, kasabay sa hudyat na tema ng pagpasok ng buwan ng Pasko. Alam naman natin na dito sa Pilipinas, napaka-espesyal ng Pasko.
Narito ang isang hudyat sa aming tahanan na wala nang makapipigil pa sa pagdating ng Pasko:
Isang simpleng paper tree, gawa ng mga anak ko noong isang taon. Isa yan sa mga ginawa nilang tree ornaments.
Nawa ay maging maayos ang pagdating ng Pasko sa ating tahanan at puso. Tandaan, si Hesus ang dahilan kaya tayo meron nito.

Today is December 4. And if my counting is right, it is just 21 days before Christmas. Are you excited already?
Ika-4 ng Disyembre ngayon, at kung tama ang bilang ko, 21 na araw ng lang, Pasko na. Eksayted ka na ba?
Last year, we didn’t put up a Christmas tree. We just decorated the front door with the usual garland decoration that we have been using for years. I wanted to see if my family can feel the Christmas spirit with our home devoid of decorations. Other than that, I was too busy and too stressed out to put up a tree.
Noong isang taon, hindi kami naglagay ng Krismas Tree. Isinabit lang namin ang aming garland sa harapang pinto ng bahay. Ito ay ilang taon na din naming ginagamit. Gusto kong maramdaman ng aking pamilya ang diwa ng Pasko kahit wala kaming mga dekorasyon sa bahay. Tsaka isa pa, ako noon ay napaka-abala at pagod upang makapag-dekorasyon pa.
The children did not mind not having a tree. In fact they didn’t ask why. The Christmas spirit? It was felt because we know that loving each other is enough to make Christmas a truly memorable experience for them.
Hindi naman nagtanong ang mga bata bakit wala kaming puno. Ang diwa ng Pasko? Naramdaman naman namin dahil alam namin na ang pagmamahal sa isa’t isa ay sapat na para maging mas makabuluhan ang Pasko.
The Christmas spirit is alive and well, despite the hardships and worries we (all) have gone through this year.
I have deliberately decided to do this Weekly Question today to kick off a Christmas-inspired weekly question that I have prepared.
Incidentally, the FilipinoMomBlog.com invites you to join our Christmas finds weekly meme called Fab Holiday Finds. Check out the mechanics here, thank you 🙂
What special Christmas memories do you still cherish as the years pass by?
Saturday mid-afternoon till early evening was spent at the Greenhills Shopping Center because my work schedule was not full. This week’s Weekly Question was even thought of while we were here.
Shopping is at its best here, with high-end goods as well as bargain goods to be had. The high-end shops sell expensive clothes, shoes, gadgets and toys.
The bargain section sells inexpensive and imitation shoes, bags and clothes. There are also lots of gift items from toys to household items like ceramics, laundry hamper, furniture, and food to mobile phones and knick-knacks related to Christmas.
Shopping haven really.
Here is a photo of a store selling poinsettia plants. Hmm…these really brighten up the day with the bright colors:
Have a great week to you all 🙂
