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!
