Christmas

Sending a Happy Christmas greeting to all… from underneath the tree. 😀

Its the season to be jolly. Fa-La-La-La-La… La-La-La-La…

A blue ambiance underneath the tree. Happy Holidays?!

Before the December Holiday ends and we welcome the Year 2013 with a bang, this here are some of the highlights of experiencing the Yuletide season here in my Temporary Home. The Christmas Ruins from the Noche Buena, party celebration moments (with the crazy stuff and all. Oh by the way, I share the same name?! Haha.), my emo back moment in the slideshow, leftover smiling cupcakes, and our Christmas tree made by the crafty hands and imaginative minds of my flat-mates. MERRY HAPPY NEW YEAR TO Y’ALL. 😀

This is one ‘CRAZY’ parloristas game. Hahaha?! #fb Who says kids only celebrate a HAPPY CHRISTMAS? We wackos can?! Hahaha. MERRY CHRISTMAS to US?! 😀

Santa Claus and company… the successful mascot of all time

Who’s that Christmas character the kids always anticipates when presents were seen under the Christmas tree or notice some sort of bulge inside a Christmas socks? Well, there’s no one to blame for that at first in a youngster sentiments except for that fat, old man on an overgrown white mustache and a long beard on the jaw area dress up in a red coat-like pajamas, with a fur weave on the edges of the wrist, waist, neck and center lines, and don’t forget the red cone shape hat with a white ball on top sewed also with white fur on the base for the head… the physical attributes of the worldwide Yuletide sensation, Santa Claus.

Santa, as we know it, is famously known by his many fans around the globe as the gift giver of the Christmas season. And stories has been told about the association of the elves helping him in the making of these gifts, the creatures behind the smiles of the children when they started to unwrapped the elf helpers labor of love in the spirit of Christmas. Santa receives the credit but the elves get none. Well if someone here believes in Santa Claus, bear in mind, ‘HEY, THE ELVES MADE THOSE?! DON’T FORGET TO THANK THEM FOR THAT?!’ with their petite physique wearing those green and red uniforms plus the Santa-like hat and the weird foot wear with a curly thingy on top. If Venus has Cupids, Santa has his elves. And they only speak in one tongue, the language of LOVE.

This whole Santa-elf tradition in Christmas… in which the whole world was talking about in the Holidays is just some sort of myth. Well technically in Christianity, he’s a saint from Turkey who, was said in some stories, threw food up high across the high fence as a form of giving for the hungry poor people years back in the A.D. In Buddhism, he is associated with Buddha who enjoys the company of children giving some sweets of some sort. And in long run of celebrating this season year by year, you’ll realize, HE DOESN’T EXIST?! He’s just merely a device of the bureaucratic toy sellers to hypnotize their young market. Well thanks to the fairy tale writer behind the creation of an established institution putting kids stay up late just to caught him in Christmas eve, but the sad part is, when they were screwed on the fact that Santa Claus (for all those years) was just their parents. That’s the embracing reality check that a kid has to overcome one single step for maturity as they age.

The whole Christmas-related shebang was a HOAX. I think it’s about time for these bureaucratic goons to take responsibility for their customers especially these kids who still believe in the existence of Santa Claus. Instead, come up with an Icon who was really the Sole reason why we celebrate this season in the first place… it’s the birth of God’s only Son to save us from the sins of the world.

The Grinch’s thoughts of not joining the Christmas Party.

Christmas, as we Christians know it, is all about having fun, giving, and on top of it, celebrating Jesus Christ’s birth by way of a joyful, love and bountiful feast. It’s the culture of us Catholics especially Filipinos to plan for a party in this yuletide season which can be experience in either big or small institutions or even in simple groups of camaraderie or acquaintances meeting together and get wasted the next day. 🙂

Enough of that festive view of Christmas, but instead, let’s look at the other side which is more opposite, a little dark. Haven’t you heard of The Grinch? The Christmas villain who might be at any moment in this season, stole the spirit spreading in town? And in honor of this unrecognized Christmas icon, I create this post… thoughts of how The Grinch finds an alternative way of celebrating Christmas. 🙂

So what are the reasons why The Grinch doesn’t join parties on Christmas season? First and foremost, The Budget, The Grinch might have an instinct of any other known economist. The Grinch might thought that on that small amount of money that would spend from gifts (another cause why The Grinch decides to reject a Christmas party invite. HeHe. :D) and food, it would be an appropriate way to spend it on preparing the December 25 event (sounds reasonable though. :D). Second, as what was mention a while ago, The Gifts, The Grinch might thought that the person whom will receiving the gift from The Grinch, might not like it. Let’s face it, for every person living in this changing world has different but unique traits, and The Grinch might have a personal bothering commotion inside if the recipient is trying to appreciate the present what The Grinch had prepared for right? It’s all about how lucky you are if The Grinch didn’t picked your name. HeHe. 😀 And thirdly, the personal decision to avoid the things that disturbs The Grinch, if only people know the story behind why The Grinch hates Christmas, it’s for the reason that no one ever sympathize or empathize what The Grinch feels whenever there’s no one care for what The Grinch might reacted. Rather The Grinch is a victim of people who are SO MEAN and RIDICULE to those beings like them (not accepted their physical aspects by many as people become judgmental and mock).

To that note, The Grinch is snubbing any Christmas Party RSVP. On the contrary, The Grinch is concepting another option of celebrating it with the people who understands, cares, accepts and loves The Grinch the most… FAMILY. Yes indeed?! They are the one support group The Grinch would be ever rely on whenever… if ever… if and only if… the WORLD is SO AGAINST to The Grinch. 🙂

Maybe some people have their own Grinch in their own selves, but may they not forget the ONE MAIN REASON why Catholics commemorates Christmas. It’s the celebration of the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ that merely changes our lives in His own ways. That’s one thing we SHALL THANK for eternally… being saved and forgive from our sins. 🙂

P.S. HAPPY CHRISTMAS to you who wasted time in reading this – The Grinch (Just Kidding?! :D)
