Christina, thanks for sharing. Hopefully the Christmas this year also brouhgt you happiness.
“My best Christmas Celebration was definitely last Christmas. After my divorce in 2003, my son and I) are always apart during Christmas. The reason being he will spend his school holidays with his dad and this goes continue right through after Christmas. I used to remember spending Christmas alone at home. It was sad being away from someone you love so much and someone who has been with you since birth.
Last year was definitely different. We had our Christmas in Hong Kong last year through the courtesy of my sis. My mum went along too. Though we reached there much too early for Christmas (from 12-16 December) we had a ball. My sis and her hubby organized a pre-Christmas dinner at her apartment overlooking the Hong Kong City. The atmosphere of Christmas in Hong Kong is beyond words. Even when you are not in the mood, you automatically sink into that festive season.
On a cherry note, spending that particular Christmas with my son, my mum and my sis plus hubby was spectacular and heart-warming. We had so much fun decorating the trees and preparing the food. Not so much of the shopping but the fact that from 2003 right up to 2007, 2008 was the only year I have so far to spend Christmas with my son. It truly meant a lot. I didn’t even dare to ask for my Christmas wish from Santa knowing that it ware mere impossible but then God works in His mysterious ways.
Truly from the bottom of my heart, the best Christmas of all. I couldn’t ask for anything more.”
