Christmas Day is the celebration of the birth of our Jesus Christ. Together with my siblings and nephew we start the morning, hearing mass at Jaro Metropolitan Cathedral.
At church, exchange of greetings to the people we know. Most Catholic Churches has a doll like figure of infant Jesus at the entrance door of the church. Church goers fall in line to kiss the infant Jesus and drop small amount at the donation box. This has been a tradition to most Catholic churches
After the celebration of the mass, we prepare lunch at home for all of our workers. Celebrating together with our workers family for lunch.
Greeting my parents (since there old, they are asleep during Christmas eve) and my uncle who is joining us for lunch and gave them some healthy goodies as our present.
All of our workers who are living and not living with us, together with there respective family gather together in our home for lunch in celebrating Christmas.
A reunion for all our workers, a time for them to get to know each other's family. Kids enjoy some sweet lollys that I prepared, which my two nephews help me distribute to all kids and for the spirit of Christmas we also gave them small gifts and baskets of grocery for them to bring it home.
To add a little fun and excitement to the kids, we did a piñata way, instead of using a piñata we throw down some money and candies to the kids which they had fun getting it as many as they can and fast as they can, even adults couldn't resist themselves from not joining the kids.
With this kind of celebration. Celebrating lunch with them and giving little gift to them is one way of making their Christmas a joyful one.
