WQ #33: How was your Christmas?
This time it's different for us, since we have a new baby in the family. We couldn't be as mobile as we want (the baby's still small to go malling, lol. in our opinion, anyway. hehe), so we went to my MIL's place in the province to celebrate Christmas. Our older son, who first wanted to spend his Christmas vacation at my parent's place (also in the province), decided finally to join us since he said that he didn't want to miss his younger brother's first Christmas (sweet, i know ... lol). We all had a wonderful time, just being together. :)
WQ #32: What are the Christmas traditions you and your family practice?
We usually get together and have a feast. lol. Nobody gets to look online for car insurance quotes since everybody's busy eating. Of course, sometimes there are quiet times but that rarely happens. Everyone's so busy talking and eating that there wouldn't be enough room to just sit and be quiet.
In hubby's family (we were there on Christmas Day) we ate noche buena together and then the cousins go visit and greet the lolos and lolas (and maybe get something in return, like the "red envelope" or a new shirt, or food specially prepared for them) and do lots of eating and chatting. There were certainly lots of visitors at my MIL's place that day. Tiring (and noisy! lol) but a fun-filled day for us all.
