Why Do You Celebrate Christmas?

First thing first, I feel so fulfilled because I completed attending all nine Simbang Gabi, but I didn’t think ahead of my wish. It was just on the 22nd of December when my wish was conceived – to have a meaningful Christmas with my family, best friends, and special someone.

1st Night

Church of the Holy Sacrifice (CHS), UP Diliman

8 p.m.

I invited all UP Aguman pips to attend the said Mass.

2nd Night

Church of the Holy Sacrifice

8 p.m.

It turned out that only Jewel and Buduy were the ones who showed up.

4 a.m.

I attended went to Church again! Someone told me that it was Fr. Jboy Gonzales’ last mass in the (CHS). That was when I realized that attending to Mass early in the morning was good. As usual, Fr. Jboy’s Homily is the best. I was the first one to light the candles. Yeay! And oh, President Emerlinda Roman was present, but I didn’t care.

3rd Night

Church of the Holy Sacrifice

4 a.m.

Ugh, I was drunk.

4th Night

Good Shepherd Parish, Pampanga

4 a.m.

Okay, my wish is about to come true!

5th Night

Good Shepherd Parish, Pampanga

6 p.m.

I was with my family.

6th Night

Good Shepherd Parish

6 p.m.

The mass was 1 hour delayed. Afterwards, we went to NAIA to fetch my Dad. :)

7th Night

Good Sheperd Parish

4 a.m.

My wish came true. My family and I went to Trinoma after the mass. There, I received my first treasure.

8th Night

Godd Sheperd Parish

4 a.m.

It was a healing mass. I felt God’s presence. I apologized to Mike for what I’ve done.

9th Night

Good Shepherd Parish

4 a.m.

Yes, finally! Haha! There were two celebrants: Fr. Mar (parish priest) and Fr. Allan. During the mass, there were droplets of water falling from the sky.

To those who are celebrating Christmas, ask yourselves why you and your family celebrate it. Try to experience God’s presence for a while. I mean, without Him, you won’t have this Chrismas vacation. Haha! Kidding aside, please attend Masses. Spare your time for God. Enough of torrent downloading and plurk.

Ask yourself, “Why do I celebrate Christmas?”
