Six Pack

24 Dec

I haven’t done a Six Pack in a long time so I am excited to do another one.

Here are six Christmas traditions of my growing up years:

  1. We did not wrap gifts nor open presents.
  2. We always got new clothes for Christmas.
  3. Attending the midnight mass was a must.
  4. Noche Buena consisted of nilaga, queso de bola, and hamon.
  5. We jumped from anywhere high as soon as the church bell rings on both Christmas Eve and New Years Eve in the hope of getting taller.
  6. Brother #3 always gives out a stick of gum for Christmas. 

Happy Holidays every one.  Peace.

    My family also did #s 2 and 3. As for #4, instead of the nilaga, we had spaghetti. I tried doing #5 once but the following year yielded no substantial results. Hehehe 😀

    I hope you won’t mind but I also added this blog of yours to my links. Thanks and Merry Christmas again!
