Christmas and New Year 2020 in Photos

It’s currently the second of January 2021, and I’m taking advantage of the downtime before school resumes on Monday. I was actually able to finish 2 K-dramas during the Christmas vacation — Sweet Home and The Guest (all horror series, I know) — so I think it was a vacation well-spent haha!

Anyway, belated Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! I was supposed to write at least 2 blogs back last month, but December happened and it just got super busy. I wasn’t expecting that Christmas in the year of the quarantine would be busy, but here we are. Just to clarify, my schedule was busy not because there were a lot of events (there were none), but I was trying to finish all homeschool and work tasks before the vacation. There was also some shopping to be done for Noche Buena and Media Noche as well as gifts for neighbors and family members.

Christmas and New Year this year was admittedly different from others because, aside from the lack of holiday events, we were not able to spend it with our loved ones. Both Job and my brother did not get to go home this year because of the pandemic so it was only the 4 of us at home who celebrated Christmas and New Year. Still, we are blessed to be complete and healthy so we’re happy!

Small Noche Buena spread enough for 4

I wasn’t able to take photos while we were opening gifts, but I gave these 2 K-Pop albums of their choice. A Blackpink album for my sister and the BTS Map of the Soul 7 for Yuri (I bought these albums in advance; hindi pa narelease ang BTS Be)

We had Christmas Day brunch at home with my cousin, Kuya Jason Olalia, and his family

On Christmas weekend, we did our yearly tradition of counting Yuri’s ipon (which is actually my Invisible-50 Challenge since he did not receive any allowance this year hahaha)

Happy New Year! This was our small Media Noche spread

I had to highlight this dish, which was the only dish we did not cook. We ordered this Chicken Biryani from a neighbor. Yum!

Celebrating Christmas and New Year as a family — virtually!

Again, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Let’s look forward to a great year ahead!
