‡ Merry Christmas 2013 ‡

What is your favorite holiday?

Ever since I was a kid, mine is Christmas Day.

When I was still at elementary school, I always felt excited whenever December came because it simply meant a longgg holiday, knowing that a new year would also come.

I would wait for good movies on television, going out to malls to see the decorations with Christmas trees and all, exchanging Christmas greeting cards from friends, and being a little girl who adored everything about Christmas.

Sure I learned that there would be no snow falling here in Jakarta like what I saw in the movies. There's no such thing as Santa Claus that would put a present for me (since there's no chimney here). I would never have Christmas dinner at house since my family didn't celebrate Christmas as a big event (the way they celebrated Chinese New Year for sure).

However I always love to imagine the day when Jesus was born. It was a cold day but everything must felt warm. I love to sing the Christmas songs, celebrating the Messiah who had came to the world. Christmas is beautiful in every way it can be.

Christmas Day is still my favorite until now.

So what made today different than my previous Christmas days?

Apparently since 6 October 2013, I started my Catholic baptism class to prepare myself for the baptism in December 2014. The class will guide me through the details about Catholic before I am ready to be a part of the Catholic community officially.

Does it make any difference? Yes and no.

Yes, considering I'm a little bit closer to God even more, attending masses every week and always feel blessed for it. No, knowing that I always believe in God since long, long ago. But, yes, I like the difference this year somehow.

This is definitely not a long post about Christmas but, with all my heart, I just want to wish all of you a merry Christmas.

Hopefully the world will be filled with joy, love, and peace.

Let's start from ourselves to share love and blessings with others in this life. ;)
