Simbang Gabi (Misa de Gallo)

Time flies so fast that its Christmas time again. The nine-day Misa de Gallo or what we call “Simbang Gabi” in the Philippines already started. I remember when I was still single I seldom completed the nine-day mass unlike my elder sister. Kind of hard for me to wake up so early, sigh! They say if you completed the Simbang Gabi your wish will be granted. Though I always failed to complete it, I always say my prayers and wishes to God. I know his so kind, forgiving and generous.

Selling of traditional Philippine food like bibingka, puto bumbong and salabat (ginger tea) is also common during Christmas season. We are living in Rizal so every time we visit my family in Manila during the Holidays I able to eat these foodstuffs and it always like my first time to have it, LOL. Really delicious especially when you order bibingka with more cheese and salted egg on top of it or add more butter and sugar to my puto bumbong.

Christmas is really my favorite among the celebrations. There is love, kindness and sharing among people. Moreover, hope is in our hearts and that will give us the strength and courage to go on with life no matter how hard it may seem.
