Here is a little something dedicated to all mothers, fathers, sons, and daughters who need to work on a Christmas Day. For those who do not know what Noche Buena is, it is the meal that Filipinos eat when the clock strikes 12 midnight on December 25. It is a meal shared by families and loved ones to celebrate Christmas Day.
I am excited to receive my 13th month pay. I'm thinking of what gifts I will buy. Then awhile ago I was coming down the escalator when I saw people who looks worse off than me. They were a group of friends and they were talking, laughing, just having fun. I almost cried because I felt humbled. It's the season of love and I was thinking of money. I almost forgot that Christmas is not merry because of my 13th month pay. It's merry because I have people who makes me laugh and loves me... and I am spending my Christmas with them.
