Christmas Away from Home

This is my first Christmas away from my family, that is, away from my wife and two kids. I had spent Christmas alone in the past but this one will be the hardest. Adding to the loneliness is I was not able to come home last November for my supposed vacation. Instead of going home, I converted my airfare ticket to cash to at least add to our budget. Now I have to wait till April before I can be with my family. That is about 10 long months of not being with them.  

It's a good thing we now have internet and I can still be part of the Noche Buena via YM. 

But unfortunately Christmas is not an official holiday here in Saudi, so we have work on Christmas Eve and Day and on New Year's Eve and Day.

Nakakalungkot. Pero siyempre tuloy pa rin ang Pasko. Next year naman I'll be spending Christmas with my family.

Here's one of my favorite Chirstmas Song. A Perfect Christmas by Jose Mari Chan

My idea of a perfect Christmas
Is to spend it with you
In a party or dinner for two
Anywhere would do
Celebrating the yuletide season
Always lights up our lives
Simple pleasures are made special too
When they're shared with you

Looking through some old photographs
Faces and friends we'll always remember
Watching busy shoppers rushing about
In the cool breeze of December
Sparkling lights all over town
Children's carols in the air
By the Christmas tree
A shower of stardust on your hair

I can't think of a better Christmas
Than my wish coming true
And my wish is that you'd let me spend 
My whole life with you

Looking through some old photographs
Faces and friends we'll always remember
Watching busy shoppers rushing about
In the cool breeze of December
Sparkling lights all over town
Children's carols in the air
By the Christmas tree
A shower of stardust on your hair

I can't think of a better Christmas
Than my wish coming true
And my wish is that you'd let me spend 
My whole life with you

My idea of a perfect Christmas 
Is spending it with you
