Happy 1st... of September! (Re-post: 95 Days Before Christmas)

Happy 1st of September everyone!

Today I started downloading my favorite collection of Christmas songs and add them back on my playlist.  I am playing the Ray Conniff selection while editing this post.

Please don't be confused with the content/title of this post.  Today, 1st of September is technically 113 days more before Christmas.

The following content is a re-post from my former blog "The Lucky Blog" originally titled as "95 Days Before Christmas"...
~

It kind of surprised me big time when I heard from today’s morning news that it is just 95 more days before Christmas!  I can’t help but utter the over used but oh so true phrase “time flies so fast”!  And it flies more faster when you are so caught up with the daily rushes of life that you missed to savor the moment when the most anticipated season of the year is fast approaching.

For those who’s been following my blog posts, it is so obvious that for almost two months now, I am having one helluva time.  My schedule is so messed up and the mess directly affected my blog postings.  Though I manage not to be in total blogging hiatus, I was not happy either on the way I am managing my posts lately. I love blogging, I love writing!  However, sometimes there are far more pressing responsibilities that one needs to take care of and in the process, some things are needed to be given up for a while.  In my case I need to sacrifice some of my blogging time to accommodate more pressing and important matters.   I’m not happy though.  Thus, in spite that my schedule is almost unmanageable, I’m still trying very hard not to neglect my blog sites. It saddens and touches me at the same time when blogger friends are commenting that they are missing my posts. How I wish that I can post like I used to.

I sound frustrated yeah?  Another reason is that, I failed to do one personal tradition that I annually do.
I love to wake up in the dawn of September 1st, tune in the radio and wait for the first Christmas song to play, then be one among the first to greet everyone a “Happy Christmas!”
Do I sound overly dramatic? And yeah I know this may sound too early for some people especially for non-Filipino.  Well I have my reasons. 

Christmastime is a joyful season that brings hope to people.  Something to be anticipated for, a time when wishes are given chances and followed by hope for something new and prosperous – the New Year.

And since I talk about music in this blog, let this be my venue to greet you all here through this beautiful music video that I traditionally post in my social media accounts every 1st of September.


HAPPY CHRISTMAS everyone!

  13. Christmas is celebrated with a different outlook here. It is all about decors and parties. Who could blame them when this is actually a Buddhist country. I love Christmas and I do anticipate the beginning of ber months. It is like hope resurrected, the coming of happy days, of friendships renewal, of homecomings, and of Jesus.

    Please find time to blog for it is in blogging that we get connected. Time management is very important as well as time to reflect. For what is life without blogging?

    1. Yes that is the sentiment of most Filipinos living overseas. The celebration of Christmas is far more different from how we do it at home which causes loneliness and the feeling of being home sick during the holidays. Christmas itself is a gift to us.

      Don't worry my friend I'm not seeing myself not blogging :) and I so agree with you "for what is life without blogging?"

    2. That even if we don't have enough money to buy the things we need, the family is still together. I hope that the spirit of togetherness is not just during the festive season but for everyday.

      I hope to see and read your entries more often. Have a great weekend!

    1. Thanks for the reminder Joy :)

      Aaah the season that we Filipinos won't experience back here though somehow there's a counterpart for those seasons. I think it's "taglagas" and "taglamig" ha ha

      Enjoy your autumn and your winter joy and be sure to share to us your stories.
