Thank you. Christmas has always been one of my favorite holidays. When I was a kid, my aunt's family always took us to their friends' and neighbors' houses who were also Christians. We hung out with their kids, and then we got to pick up the little presents on the artificial Xmas tree. Usually, the presents were filled with money. The lucky kid of that night would get the present with a double amount of money in it, which we called the special present. Each of us was so thrilled to aim at a present we thought was good, so the adults could get that specific one down. I never got that special present because I always chose the big box with pink wrapper
. I was happy enough, though. Then when my family came to the States, I thought I wouldn't have a chance to do any more Xmas things since we were all Buddhists. However, to my surprise, all my cousins and their families like Xmas. Actually, they like presents
. Hehehhehe, no need to say more because this is good enough for me.
For this Xmas, my cousins have decided to play secret Santa since they're all broke. I will play it with them, but I will give each of my nephews a present plus some other people. Lately, I have been doing the Christmas shopping, however, I've been shopping for myself
. In a way it's a good thing because it will decrease my wish list.
