My niece, who is in second year high school, is not going to the Christmas Party in school. The reason is that, we are coming and she is more excited to be with us than attending her class’ Christmas party. I don’t blame her. She has been looking forward to spending the holidays with us. And because we will be in Leyte in two weeks, my niece and nephews are very excited to see us and our darling daughter.
When I was in high school, I always attend our class’ Christmas parties. And whenever there’s a school Christmas Program, I always have a part either in a dance or a song presentation. I was active in extra curricular activities in school. Despite tightness in financial, I tried to get on with school requirements. School was very important to me. And I was very active in my class too.
On the other hand, my niece said that attendance to their Christmas party is not mandatory. So she’s not bothered about it. She is helping her mother get ready for the trip. My sister will go with us to Bicol. And she will be our assistant and temporary babysitter while we are in Manila. I am anxious to get on the plane on Sunday. My family and I will be home for Christmas.
