May I be the first to wish you Merry Christmas!

Here in Manila, not only are we going to heading toward bed after a busy day, just as so many of you are only thinking of getting started, we are also busy in the next day working while you guys are all still snoozing…  So it will come as no surprise that we are also onto the Christmas thing MONTHS ahead.  Yes, Christmas here begins in September.  Of course, for real impact I should have posted about this last month, but life got in the way as usual.  But believe me when I say that for several weeks we have Christmas trees and jingle bells at the local supermarket and all around town.  Lights and trees are up in many houses, and Metro Manila Supermarket have dusted off their red Santa hats and everyone is donning them again, just like last year when we arrived in late December.  So its Santa hats and “deck the halls” from now until mid-January.  I am going to be an anti-Santa, raging beast!

  1. Aye! Aye! Aye! September?! I think I’d be anti-holiday too. One month’s worth of decorations is enough for me, thanks very much. Coincidentally, however, I was working at a catering gig last evening, and when the music was turned on for the guests, we were serenaded by Bochelli’s Christmas album! Have Yourself a Merry Little…..


  2. Im in agreement with you, i’m still triing to get use to the idea that it’s Halloween and having to wear warmer clothes. Seen all the decorations in Lowes and other stores and i just try to turn the other cheek and think summer. Barb


    • Oh absolutely. Uniforms are very big here…most stores, salons etc. all have uniforms. Household staff often where them too. That might make an interesting post actually. I’ll bear it mind – thanks!
