One of the best things about the holiday season is the fact that I always celebrate it surrounded by my big, amazing family. All the traditions - a big dinner party on Christmas Eve, followed by mass and then opening our gifts, and then Christmas Day brunch - only matter because of who I get to spend it with. While I do see my family on other occasions, nothing seems more special or magical than Christmas to me!
In the spirit of the season, I thought I'd dig up some old photos and share with you my "ghosts of Christmases gone by". It gave me a chance to reminisce, as well as got me excited for my holidays this year -- which are set to be extra special (for reasons I won't be divulging just yet!).
|Christmas 2003: Manila, my grandmother's house with my sisters + cousin|
|Christmas 2004, featuring my mom & my sisters|
|Christmas 2005, where we decided to wear green (and blend with our tree?)|
|Christmas 2008: family on my mom's side in my grandmother's house|
|Christmas 2009: Christmas in Manila (photo in our condo lobby)|
|Christmas 2010: New Jersey, with the Ornillos|
|Christmas 2010: with my best friends Jaymee & Pam|
|Christmas 2011: Christmas in Ohio, with the Suntays|
|Christmas 2012: Home with friends|
I'm not quite sure where the holidays will take me this year, but I do know that it's going to be super special. (And there will be photos to prove it!) Hope you enjoyed this little trip down memory lane with me -- and if you feel like sharing some holiday photos of your own, well, you can definitely tweet them to me or share links in the comments!
