Hooray Thursday: Holiday Cheers

Post Content

Everybody’s favorite time of the year is just around the corner. Gorgeous wreaths, Santa’s hat, Christmas socks, holiday trees, sparkling lights, all things that dazzle adds warmth and color to this joyous season and put the kids and even the kids at heart into a festive mood.

Candy canes, gingerbread house, Christmas cookies, pudding, Christmas pies, Queso de Bola, Lechon, smoked ham, puto bumbong and bibingka makes you want to break your diet (and plan to resume after New Year’s) and gorge on these special treats.

From the cold breeze that greets you as you step out on the porch in the wee morning to the cool blow of the wind at night that makes cuddling with your loved ones extra special, it’s no denying that Christmas is here!

And if you’re like me who’s a busy bee and haven’t even started decorating, here’s some inspiration to put you in that Christmas spirit and ways to fill your home with holiday cheer.
