Christmas season actually begins around September in The Philippines. But given that it's finally the 1st of December, it's a bit more apt to start the greetings today... "Merry Christmas to All!!!"
Shopping these days almost feels like attending an animal rights rally. I guess all that persistence is part of the festivity.
There were so many watches on sale earlier this week! Though none that made me gasp enough to bring out my wallet. Hour Choice in Burjuman Mall, Dubai, had this "40% off promotion". I noticed the Philip Stein piece I recently got -& did a cartwheel inside my mind upon finding out that it's the only brand that's not part of the sale!
Anyway, you'd expect that the major malls at this moment would be packed with shoppers hunting for gifts to give, etc. It's real nice that lots of people continue to do that. But beyond the material things that we go crazy for, I hope we still recognize how there's a far more valuable reason on why this CHRISTmas should be merry.
