It's the time of the year when people are building the tallest or biggest Christmas something, visiting the most famous Christmas spots, gathering everyone they love, etc.
People call February as the 'love month.' I was thinking maybe it's should be December (well, it shoud be ALL months).
This is the time of the year when people are warmer than usual. Happiness is very contagious so it is easy to pick. A lot of people has that 'merry' mood and sparkling eyes. It feels great to enjoy something so simple yet very special. Moments brought by times like these tend to be the most precious to people. No one takes away a happy memory; it is forever part of a person.
It is also the time of forgiveness. It is the time of thanksgiving. It is the time when people share what they have even to strangers. It is the time of sharing even when we already have so little. The value of what we give is not really important. What matters is that we made someone happy by our gesture.
Yesterday, I bought a silver lantern worth 20php from a kid who seemed like he owns everything he sees. It became an awkward color to our room since the theme of our Christmas design was red and gold. I did not care. I was just so happy seeing that lantern and remembering the cute little person who wished me a Merry December Christmas (he really said "Merry December Christmas po!).
Happy. Positive. Calm. It is the time of love. December is the original love month. Christmas is the ultimate love occasion.

p.s. Let us all pray that the super typhoon Ruby would pass us by without any casualties. They say it landfalls sometime right now. Everyone is prepared and at watch. Still, prayers give us peace the most.
