Things I Realized This Christmas (2017)

After a recent period of time, a period of time which also includes reflecting on the birth of Jesus Christ multiple times in the Rosary, I have come to a bunch of realizations about this season where those Joyful Mysteries should get more focused on by our spiritual magnifying glasses and such:

About Santa Claus:
I owe a lot to those grumpy nuts who like to claim that Santa Claus isn’t real, because Santa Claus isn’t the center of this religious holiday, this holiday which a lot of us these days don’t like to call religious…and heh, we also claim to fight for religious freedom with that sort of attitude!

About dreaming of a “White Christmas”:
And since Christmas isn’t about that magically sledding psychic old man and his buff reindeer and skittering elves and pocket-dimensioned gift boxes going down snow-battling chimneys, this Filipino doesn’t need to worry about not having snow in his tropical archipelago of a country! The seasonal cold breezes are still likable, though… ^_^

About holiday decorating:
I should remember to keep my future Christmas decorating simple and religious, alright…I can sense incoming headaches and explosions from all those balls and stars and spikes…Wait, maybe I should maintain the parol habit for some Filipino flavor…and maybe I should make something more fun out of it for better Filipino flavor…

About gifts:
My presence made someone’s Christmas and year-end so much, so much that I don’t feel much of the need to worry about buying presents beyond proper spending power. Giving seasonal presents still can work as nice supplements to personality development, alright…and sure, I’ll still take all the money you’d like to give me, my dear family and relatives. And, uh, to my ninongs and ninangs? Please don’t forget your main and spiritual job. Don’t worry, I know you can do it! I know one priestly ninong of mine who’s been doing a great job, see! 🙂

About romance:
My love life (yes, I’m talking about romance, but do remember that that’s not the only form of love) may have gone through some very interesting developments this season, but it’s not the main trigger of me feeling happy this season. Humbling myself for the sake of a healthy romantic relationship, though? Well, that’s a main trigger, alright~ 😀

About family, feasts, and vacation:
To chomp or not to chomp? That is the question. I’m in danger of chomping off all of this archipelago’s tables, which is obviously beyond my human carpenter capabilities. And resting is my current occupation, not for as long as I like, but for as long as I need. And hey, Jesus was raised by family here on earth, so I better not consider my own family insignificant, even when it’s not Christmas! But, uh…that’s easier said than done…Welp, shattering these glass barriers of mine will involve me feeling pain, alright…God Almighty help us some more…

About Christmas Specials in entertainment and all them commercial stuff:
I do enjoy Twice’s “Heart Shaker,” but if I were to make some Christmas Special sort of artwork and business, then I think it would be better for my soul to get you to reflect on your own soul and how it’s doing and all that. Higher chance of lower profit? Uh, we’re talking about spirituality here…and haven’t we been yelling about how we should become better people online and offline? That’s, like, better than profit, to the point that it’s essential. I know it’s hard to actually do it, fellow fool, so don’t worry, I got your back, and I’ll help you out there to the best of my abilities! \(^o^)

So yeah, aside from the usual request for honest constructive feedback, I wish you all a Merry Christmas, peeps! God Almighty keep on helping us all, too! \(^o^)/
