Holiday homecoming to remember
What is your most memorable Christmas season?
In our province, Masbate, we celebrate Christmas in a simple way. For noche buena, we have the usual dishes: spaghetti, puto (rice cakes), fruits like apples and oranges.
The most memorable Christmas for me was the time my mother, who works in Dubai, came home. I was 4 years old then. It was special because we were complete. My father was still alive then. He died when I was 10. Since then, my lola has assumed the roles of mom and dad for me and my siblings.
I want to go home for the holidays, but I have to stay in the city because I have an entry (“Seklusyon”) in the Metro Manila Film Festival. I want to watch my first film with my family, but they are based in the province. I will just ask my friends to join me, instead. —BAYANI SAN DIEGO JR.
