Dear ACE Students,
I would like to extend my deepest gratitude and appreciation for all
of you who have helped me feel the true meaning of love. I always
feel like home and loved whenever I am around you. This will be my
first time to celebrate Christmas here in Japan away from my family.
Christmas makes me think of you. You are all our most precious gifts.
If I think of what I want for Christmas from Santa, what more could
I ask than you.
The most festive time of the year is right around the corner, for the
rest of the world. In the Philippines, Christmas has already begun.
From setting up the decorations and playing Yuletide songs as early as
September. Unlike the United States, Filipino households don’t
exactly decorate for Halloween in October and Thanksgiving in
November. But that doesn’t mean they don’t already begin decorating
by then. Some plastic poinsettias here, some Santa Clause figurines
there, it isn’t strange for the Christmas decor to start emerging
when the first “-ber” month (September) begins. One of the most
exciting activity that children do together on the night of December
24 is Caroling and visit a lot of houses. Nowadays, we often hear
people singing Christmas in English, Tagalog, or some other native
dialect. However, there used to be a time when singing such songs
were done in Spanish. I hope that the holidays will be full of fun for
all of you and and that you can take out some time to do activities
that decree the true meaning of this holiday. Advance Merry
Christmas and Happy New Year.
