The nutcracker Christmas decorationAre you like me who’s insanely attracted to everything that shimmers, glitters or sparkles? I’m naturally drawn to such objects and I can’t explain its hypnotic appeal. You want proof? Just look at the pictures of our Christmas decorations below.

Since we have a very special visitor from overseas, I decided to go a tad overboard with the holiday decorations this year (and cue in the snow falling on this blog page hehe).

I wanted to get the traditional Filipino “parol” (Christmas lantern) but it seems a bit too pricey. Instead, I opted for a little bit more affordable knickknacks from an arts and crafts store near our house.

Christmas and Hanukkah are for spending time with loved ones and giving gifts. Hope you’re all set for the holidays. Whatever your reason for celebrating, may you find joy, happiness and peace this season. Christmas songs strike a chord in my heart because for me this season means the birth of my Savior, the Jewish Messiah.

A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn
Fall on your knees! Oh, hear the angel voices
Oh night divine..

Born that men no more they die
Born to raise the sons of earth
Born to give them second birth

Have a great weekend!
