December 1, 2017

It’s finally here. Officially, Christmas season starts today.

In our home 1st of December is the lighting of our Christmas tree. At exactly 5:30 pm today we lighted our tree. That has always been our tradition.

I put up a small tree in our living room upstairs and we lighted it, too. I just wanted a simple tree in this area. No ornaments just lights.

I started to do my shopping list today, too. But unfortunately, since it is payday Friday the traffic was so bad and there were a lot of people. After buying a few things on my list I decided to go home. I am not just about to stress myself with the traffic and the rush. Besides, I usually give myself at least a week to finish my list and my target date is December 15. All gifts must be delivered. I still have plenty of time.

The first thing I bought is toys. Oh my god, I don’t know how to buy toys anymore. Buying toys used to be my forte (hahaha). When my kids were small I was very good at buying toys. I was so shocked when I went to the toy store and I stood for a few minutes in the middle of the store not knowing what to buy. I felt so lost. I don’t even know who Peppa pig is. Geezz…. I had to ask the sales assistant to help me choose what to buy. Good thing the staff were very helpful.

I will continue my list next week. I have friends who are done with their list since last week. One of Vinny’s Godfather sent gifts last week of October. Seriously. I’m an old soul I want to start the holidays at the right time. I want to experience the traffic, the rush and all. It feels more Christmasy that way. Hinog na kumbaga.

I’ll try to blog everyday this month!
