Christmas Day 2015

        Holidays especially the Christmas season are very much celebrated here in my country, and that includes the worst traffic, parties here, there and everywhere, lots of sweets at the dining table which will make your blood's sugar level rise up and of course the oily meat dishes such as the yummiest crispiest lechon and crispy pata  to boost our cholesterol for the rest of the jolly season. 

        The food just add up to the fun, but what's really nice about Christmas is that, everyone will have time to meet and kiss and wish one another a Merry Christmas. Family reunions are everywhere. It's been our yearly tradition since childhood to have time and see each other every December 25. And it's always as happy! Although some has long been gone and I'm missing them a lot.
       

       My cousins and I have this annual photo every Christmas day. It's our tradition and hopefully until we grow old we'll continue doing this. Us, ladies only.


    This is my mother's house, we always take a photo like this every year as well. I am always late because I am with my husband and we go to my husband's grandma's (who just passed away, sad) before going to my family's so I was not able to take a photo of our table but what we've had was just our usual festive dishes like Valenciana, Menudo, Pancit, Fried Chicken and Lumpiang Shanghai with Leche Flan, Ube and Maja Blanca as desserts.




       These happy days have given me enough blogging time, rest and happiness to be with loved ones.

Hope we all have a lovely Holidays my loves!
