Christmas overload! In the Philippines, we have been enduring for Santa for the last 6 months, everlasting Christmas carols played to the loudest possible volume everywhere – karaoke, taxis, malls, sari sari ..
I took the kids to dozens of Christmas shows rehearsals and I know by heart all their songs! I had to buy the Santa clothes, the Santa’s hats. The old man is a rock star here, and I am counting the days till he finally goes back home! Merci me Santa, we are not interested in the 10000th pict of my kids with you. You look like a perv, only (fat and old) farang with so many children on your laps. No Santa, we not going to buy those awful cheap Chinese toys. We are from a rare specie of “Minimalist family“.
Can we just adapt the Xmas stuff and make it a bit more realistic this year? I want a decent Santa who really shares with the ones in need. Good news: I spot him! Too bad he lives in Canada ..
And I also want a real tree!!! Simple and efficient, like this one. Icing on the cake, it is all recyclable.. At least some meaningful deco!
Hasta la Revolucion!
