South Korea —
Four (4) days left ’til Christmas day. If I was still in the Philippines today, I would have already been hearing Christmas jingles since September, carollers would be knocking on our doors every night, my mom would also be listing the noche buena (Christmas Eve) menu and my BFFs and I would have already been celebrating our annual Christmas get together. However, things have changed. I’m married and I got a new home here in Korea for more than half a year now. I might be celebrating a white Christmas and see dazzling fireworks on New Year’s Eve, too. But, most importantly, no matter where we are in the world, let’s not forget that Jesus is the real reason for this season. Have a blessed Christmas, everyone.
