Late post. I’m sorry, I was so busy yesterday I couldn’t find a moment to sit down and check my blog. This is the 24th post in my #Blogmas series and I’m thankful to everyone who have checked my posts. I love you guys and Happy Christmas.
Today, I’m sharing my ideal Christmas eve. Here in the Philippines, Christmas Eve is really a big deal. In fact in our house, the night before Jesus’ birthday is much busier than Christmas day itself. 25th is almost like an ordinary day except everyone is sleeping, if not out with friends. It’s because of the Noche Buena which I’m not sure if everyone knows about. In my house we usually do some partying on Christmas Eve, with games for both the kids and adults and stuffs, and plenty of foods and drinks so we stay awake till midnight. And then when midnight comes, that’s when we REALLY eat. Like sitting in a long huge table with the entire family. After that, giving gifts and opening them.
But I have an ideal Christmas Eve I wanna experience just once. You must understand I don’t want to do this every year coz I don’t want my family resent me. Also what I have in mind is a little unusual.
Things I Want to Have and Do on a Christmas Eve:
1.) To be alone.
I know, I know, this is not good. It’s Christmas after all. But my family always spend Christmas with relatives. It’s always crowded in our house whenever there’s an occasion. As an introvert and someone who just had a full year spent in her room, I can’t help but wonder what my Christmas would be if I’m alone. I love my family and relatives of course, but I get overwhelm with noise and mess and crowd. Just once I want to experience Christmas Eve with just me and Jesus. My plan is next year, I’ll rent my own place just for December and spend Christmas there. My family is already used to me doing weird things so this won’t surprise them. Haha.
2.) Have fried rice, whole grilled chicken, red wine, ice cream cake and hotdogs in sticks.
Really? Fried rice? Yes really. Unusual, I know. But I really, really love fried rice. It’s my comfort food. LOL. I eat it every day. I don’t mind whatever is in it as long as it’s fried rice. I also think I can finish a whole grilled chicken over night. I eat a lot, obviously. Deep-fried chicken works too. Hehe. Wine, of course. For dessert, I want some ice cream cake.
3.) Read a book.
While eating hotdogs and sipping wine, I want to read a book before the night ends. Maybe a book about Christianity or an inspiring one.
4.) Binge-watch an entire season of a TV show or movies
You know I can read an entire book in three hours so I still have plenty of time for watching whatever I want. I’ll be in my living room, sitting comfortably in my comfortable sofa, clutching a bowl of fried rice. I’ll be binge-eating hotdogs too and wine’s gonna be my beverage.
5.) A Video Documentation
This is a MUST. Of course I wanna record everything, including how I feel. Would I even like the experience? See, this is what I want to be answered. 🙂
So what do you think? Is this even healthy? hehe… Just for one Christmas, I really wanna experience this, just for fun and out of curiosity.
