Christmas is Here

Christmas starts here September
and flies right on past December
Christmas light shows in January

My friend Em text me on 29 August to tell me she was putting up her Christmas tree. Any month ending is ‘ber’ is a Christmas month in the Philippines (and they usually throw most of January in there — plus a bit of August too). Carols were playing in the stores last Saturday (1st Sept). I took this photo today. I do love the Pinoy enthusiasm for Christmas.

    1. I love Christmas too, and it’s amazing having Christmas in the Philippines (Australians tend to be a bit ‘bah humbug’ about it).
