During this season, why not count, appreciate, and be grateful for our blessings, and share some of them with others? Despite the disastrous events of 2009, we have many things to be grateful for, starting from being alive when some are already dead.


This is the season to refresh ourselves, to think and feel young again. "Christmas, in its final essence, is for grown people who have forgotten what children know.” (Margaret Cousins). “There’s nothing sadder in this world than to awake at Christmas morning and not be a child.” (Erma Bombeck).


The Christian world someday will adopt many of the traditions found in the 21-day Filipino Christmas celebration. When this happens, it is actually a gift from the Iberians, the Spanish friars and Pope Sixtus V, the British, the Germans, the Americans and other peoples that contributed to the making of the Filipino heritage. The Filipinos are simply giving back to the world what the universe has given them. – Bobby M. Reyes
