Christmas message

投稿日: 2018/12/06 2:41:36

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.


Lovely Ventanilla
