Christmas 2011: Missing My Family

Christmas 2011 - no stress.... no gifts to wrap... no panic buying.... no foods to prepare.... no kids screaming – all I can hear is the clock ticking in my room….

Christmas is a big celebration in our family. We do celebrate it by attending a mass on the evening of the 24th of December then party at house over night. We don’t sleep until the dawn breaks; even the kids. We do partying all night. Then we’ll have late breakfast at my sister’s house.

But prior to that is the huge preparation. Last minute shopping, gift wrapping, preparing prizes for the games, set up for the house, balloons, preparing foods, pleading my stubborn nieces and nephews to prepare a dance number, etc.... So much noise and sometimes it stress me out! But I’m totally happy with it.

This year would be a different Christmas; I’m spending it with my sissy and some friends. I can’t feel its Christmas! My heart is crying and screaming – ‘how I wish I’m home. I miss the stressful Christmas; I miss the loud noise, the crying and laughing around our home, I miss my family.’

Perhaps looking at this old photos will ease the loneliness inside me.
