Pasko in America

Thursday, December 25, 2014

Happy Christmas Day everyone! Have you gotten over your eggnog hangover yet? We've just had our late brunch of eggs, bacon and mimosas to recover from an evening with copious amounts of lechon, silly gifts, laughter and wine. Everything feels right with the world.

Filipinos always feel a bit of longing during the holidays, missing our over-the-top Motherland that takes Christmas to whole other levels. But eventually we find ways to make our adopted homes just that—home. Whether its digging into a Kamayan Christmas feast with the New York barkada or erupting in hysterics over silly White Elephant gifts with my family in Seattle, we've found our own version of Pasko in America. It turns out, home really is where the heart is.

Wishing you all the happiest holidays, wherever your home may be!
