Manigong Bagong Taon



Fireworks, originally uploaded by Em Dy.

Paano nyo ba sinasalubong ang bagong taon? Nagpapaputok ba kayo o nagsisindi ng fireworks? Dati rati, mahilig ding magpaputok ang tatay ko at nagpagawa pa sya ng kanyon para doon. Pero pinakiusapan namin siya kaya tumigil na. Baka kasi mapano ang tenga nya o maputukan kung saan. Ngayon, kuntento na syang silipin sa bintana ang fireworks ng kapitbahay.

How do you welcome the new year? Do you use firecrackers or fireworks? In the past, my dad loved firecrackers and even had a cannon custom made for that purpose. But we asked him to stop so he did. We were worried about its effects on his hearing or a possible firecracker related injury. Now he's content with watching our neighbors' fireworks display from the window.

We celebrate the coming year with solemnity anchored on the midnight dinner where we gather together to give thanks to the Lord for all the blessings we received in the preceding year and pray that the coming year will be more prosperous and filled with all kinds of blessings. We just watch the firework displays of our neighbors and I always remind my kids that the money that could be spent for them were spent on the food at our dinner table. We never indulge in superstitious beliefs associated with New Year celebrations. Thanks for the post. God bless you always.

hi doc! happy new year! kasama ko ang mga kapatid ko, nag-invest lang kami sa gasolina, at nakifireworks kami sa aming kapitbahay na The Fort para sa Taguig Global Countdown- sila na ang bahala sa aming paputok at si Conti's naman ang bahala sa dinner! ang saya di ba, walang kapagud-pagod, excellent products pa ang na-enjoy namin =]

isang masaya at pinagpalang bagong taon sa iyo at sa lahat ng mahal mo (at mga kaaway mo na rin, kung meron man hahahaha)

HAPPY NEW YEAR, Dra!!!

Wishing you all the benign cases and prosperity of the present New Year.

We all mellow down with each passing year. I admire the wisdom of your father.
