"It's that Time Again!"

The time to be festive and merry.... to see family, friends, love ones and wish them all the BEST for the Holiday Season and for the year to come.... to get Sentimental for those XMasses past, but also Hope for more Great Times to come in XMasses future....  But we MUST ALSO REMEMBER to HONOUR our dearly departed and to share in not just  the Season has to offer - but to actually share to those in need.

As you all know, it is also my MOST FAVORITE HOLIDAY....   not just for the presents, but those are welcomed, too...   but I just feel that this time of the year becomes extra Magical as people tend to be more caring, giving, and genuinely nice to one another.   It is a time when one can be a KID once more....   relieve the Joys of XMas pasts.... and as we get older, see the Joys through the eyes of the younger generation.

This time last year, I spent one of my loneliest XMas' ever - seeing my Mom go through pain from Cancer.... now she is gone.... and with my Nieces and Nephew all giving their own lives in Manila and the US - I decided to stay in Taiwan, instead....  Not really a place where XMas is much celebrated - except in Malls and Restaurants and mostly for appearances sakes - not by tradition or anything more....  So far, Juju and I have visited a few places just to catch their Holiday Decorations....  nothing too outstanding so far - like the window displays of Macys, or Saks Fifth Ave or Bloomingdales, the ones I grew up on -  but none-the-less, FESTIVE.
Still, it matters not - as I know that one can FEEL THE SPIRIT OF XMAS - anywhere and everywhere....   and I am one  to see to it that I have a JOYOUS one with what I happen to have, who am with, and where ever I happen to be..
