Christmas Party at a Friend's House

We spent our Christmas day at a friend's house.  We normally just spend it at home relaxing but last year, my son's godmother invited us so we went there and had a great time with other families.  They prepared so many food that I almost over eat!  But can you blame me? Ha ha!  It's hard   to avoid temptation when it's all out in the open especially food that  reminds you of home.  It's been a long time since we attended a Filipino gathering and I forgot how much food there is.   Anyway, I burned it off the next day, I punished myself by working  out extra hard.
I am glad that we  went because I miss catching up with them.  There's nothing enjoyable than talking to friends and eating.
There's  only five  families but my friend's house was packed!
 We exchanged gifts and the kids received some monetary gifts  as well.
 One thing about Filipino parties, picture taking is a must lol.
 It was a  fun night for Filipino-American families.  The kids had a good time singing karaoke and playing games while the adults catch up.  Thanks a lot Ate Agnes for hosting, we had  an awesome time.

 We might be hosting the party this year for Christmas, we will see.  At least we got appointed to do so ha ha.


I don't mind doing it, it's once a year and it's fun.  My youngest sister is planning to visit us this  year so hopefully, she could be with us during the party so she won't miss celebrating  the holiday in the Philippines.  I would say that Christmas celebration here is way different than in my native country.  I've been living here for  almost 14 years but still can't totally get over with my homesickness especially during Christmas.  Being from a collective family, it is hard being away.
