because i miss you

In kindred on November 23, 2005 by carinasuyin

I got irked looking at someone else’s Christmas tree today. Why would a person who does not celebrate Christmas put up a fancy Christmas tree is beyond me. It’s not even Advent yet! Then I remembered that a Christmas tree has nothing to do with the birth of Christ.

Thus I told myself to shut up. Sigh.

This is the third year in a row that Supra, Sugeo and I did not get to put up the Christmas tree at home together. Like little elves, we’d stay up all night tidying the house and putting up all the decor after Mama and Atah have gone to bed. In between all the tidying and decorating, we’d be having home-cooked maggi goreng and singing off-key renditions of Christmas carols. I’ve always wondered what were Mama and Atah’s thoughts waking up to a cosy Christmas-y house the morning after and three snoozing chikoras sprawled on the carpet…

  1. i can’t begin to imagine how christmas-y your house would be after all that hard work. i’m sure it was fun and your parents would be proud of it.

    don’t worry, a day like this would come again πŸ™‚

  2. I sort of relate to what you mean. Somehow Christmas is never the same for me anymore. I get annoyed walking in shopping complexes the most!

  3. tim: Yeah man, yeah…

    fiona1: Oohh you ought not to walk down Orchard Road this particular time of the year πŸ˜›
