DECEMBER, the most awaited month of the year, has come and will hopefully veer around everyone's outlook after almost 11 months of feeling uneasy due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Although it's not yet good to lose our guards against the virus, still Christmas season should be cheered after enduring the tough period.
Some people welcomed the first day of December with simple get-togethers and partook in chow to extend our gratitude to the Lord for keeping us safe throughout the pandemic.
Donning face masks, the simple get-togethers have been fun with the observance of the health protocol.
Although the happening is not for the myriad of individuals, still the essence of the celebration was given its due significance.
With the matching playing of the Christmas songs popularized by Jose Marie Chan and the colorful Christmas tree with its decors and fixtures standing beside us, we also welcomed the Christmas season with much joy.
The foods that we partook in were an assortment of our native and foreign cuisines.
There were steamed crabs, baby back ribs, chop suey, fish Relleno, drunken shrimp, salad, and fruits among others.
Our cook said she cooked it with love. And it was appetizing and flavorful.
Of course, the eating and babbling were fun as some of us just got reunited with each other again since the enhanced community quarantine was imposed last March 2020 in Bacolod City.
Thanks to those who prepared the food. It was an opportunity to strengthen our bond after a long hiatus.
