True to Tradition

True to tradition in my family, the day before Christmas, we prepared some Christmas give-aways and shiny 5-peso coins for those kids (and parents too) who pass by our house and greet us with a "Merry Christmas po!" on Christmas morning.

And although we all know that these people sometimes greet just for the sake of getting something (particularly money), we in our family, nevertheless, take advantage of this day to be a little bit more generous to the others.

This year, our loot bag composed of 2 pieces of daladan fruit and a variety of candies. We also handed out some money to the kids.


When Zoe is a little older, we hope to be able to instill in her this virtue of charity and the actual experience of sharing your blessings to others. By this, she will live the tradition and hopefully pass it on.
