The Average Pinoy Christmas

Okayyyy, LATE POST IS LATE! I was too lazy to take photos. I was bumming around and eating most of the time sooo I had to wait for other people to upload photos of our reunion/Christmas party. Lol. All of the photos here (except the fireworks) are stolen from my cousin. Hahaha.

A typical average Pinoy Christmas consists of LECHON, parlor games, dancing, karaoke, and the always present - Monito/Monita (also known as Secret Santa or Exchanging gifts).

I actually forgot what this game was. I think it’s a relay thing. I was too busy with DJ-ing loljk I was setting up and operating the sound system. :))

The “Spell It” game. This was something new for me. I enjoyed watching them cram and shout their hearts out while playing the game. I would’ve joined but… I was too amused watching them. Lol

What is a Pinoy Christmas party without the “Newspaper Game”?! Haha! For those who don’t know.. you play it by stepping on the news paper when the music stops and the newspaper is folded after every round. I’ve always sucked at this game so it was a good thing I didn’t join. :))

Le kids dancing to… *ehem* GANGNAM STYLE. I’m not a fan of Psy. I guess that explains the mega derp face I have right there in the background. Haha!

And of course, we had the Monito/Monita. It’s always present in ALL Pinoy Christmas parties. It’s like one of the most important parts of our Christmas. Haha. I got a stuffed bunny and a teddy bear… I am not of fan of teddies… But it’s better than nothing! Thank you to my Monito! :))

Most of the gifts that I got were cash. Hmm. Cash is good. I spent it the next day. Dammit. Haha.

Fireworks! I will never get tired of fireworks. The perks of having a roof deck! There were fireworks everywhere we looked! I only took a few good shots (the best one, for me, is in one of my previous posts).


So, there you have it! That was how we spent Christmas. Well, partly. Haha.┬áChristmas is best spent with the warm presence of your family. Even though we don’t spend Christmas as luxurious as other people, Christmas is still Christmas. It’s that time when we momentarily forget about our worries and burdens, and just enjoy the happiness and warmth (despite the cold weather) that Christmas brings to our home and our hearts.
