mum's thoughts, Christmas, Jared, Jared's nook, home

It sure is beginning to look a lot like Christmas here at home now that I finally managed to set up our Christmas tree. I originally planned to set it up earlier last month but with the light of the recent disaster in Visayas, I find it difficult to get into all the Christmas vibe knowing that someplace else people are suffering from a tragedy and thought is was rather inappropriate.

But, there is no way we can stop Christmas, right? And there is no way Filipinos would stop celebrating it no matter what, so I was glad I finally mustered enough energy to get the tree out of its box along with all the trimmings I managed to collect the past years.

I am also very delighted that my little helper was very much game to help me set up our tree. He was so enthusiastic, in fact, that we were able to get everything done in a few minutes. He cannot wait to have the lights up so we can turn it on. He also enthusiastically put the little star at the top of our tree. :)

Next up are the little gifts to put under our tree. I have yet to shop for those, though, so hopefully I find the time in the next few days.

I hope Christmas’ coming along beautifully in your homes and that you have found the time to set up the tree, too! :)
