Christmas gift-giving used to be a big deal for me and my neighbors. Back in the 80's my neighbors and I sort of had an understanding that it was our "duty" to gift each other's children. It was sort of irritating because there were those I did not feel like gifting but I had to anyway. Come December 24 around 5 P.M. I load all the gifts for my neighbors and my kids in my hubby's open top jeep. For an hour or so I drive around the village seemingly like Santa less the "ho-ho-ho". The gift-giving stopped for some but I still continued to give gifts to real close friends and instead of gifs for their kids, it's now for their grandkids.

  3. renz: yes. we're quite close.

    huling: oh we missed the 11:00 am concert but made it to the 6 pm one. the concert was ok.it's just that the choir was not technically (voice-wise) equipped to tackle Vivaldi. the second part was Filipino Christmas songs like simbang gabi and they did well.
