Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2008

Christmas season is a busy season. And so am I. Muthja is also hopping from one event to another. From being judge to organizer from one occasion to another. She's only loaded with Solicitations. She got a tons of it. And she sometimes call it Tulis-sitation. Anyways...

How can you complain? Its Christmas. This only happens once a year. Everyday is once in a year right? Agree? But this day happens to be Christmas. Its time to give. I still have to send my share by the way :-)

Yes, time to share, to give and forgive. Its time to be with our family. For us we consider this kind of thanksgiving for the previous year since in next few days it will be another year.

Enjoy our traditions.. like caroling, pamasko with Ninong and Ninang, simbang gabi, church/school/work parties. Parol contest, enjoy making our traditional Christmas tree made from a mangrove and baboto. Discoral after chruch!!! What else?

We hope you will enjoy the holidays and be safe. Don't drink to much and be careful with firecrackers.

Wherever you are from Asia, New Zealand, Middle East to Canada. From the Philippines, US, South America, Australia to Europe. We are all wishing you all Merry Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

From your friends and family in Libjo and LibjoLIVE!
