The value of gift giving is just one of the traditions that I have taught my kids. I always tell them that Christmas is for sharing or giving.
We attend Misa de Gallo and although we never really complete the Novena masses, we always see to it to attend the last day or midnight mass before Christmas. After hearing mass, Noche Buena is then served together with my family and friends. Traditional food like hamon, keso and pasta are always present in our menu list. My kids usually invite their friends and have dinner with us. During Christmas day, we usually stay in the house and wait for some friends or relatives to visit us. Merry Christmas everyone!
