Holidays and Holy Days
What does a holiday these days mean really? It has been a habit to constantly wait for Christmas and Holy Week and Araw ng Kagitingan and Rizal Day and all those days that mean i will not be required to go somewhere that will restrain me and my natural flair for spontaneity ever since I was a child. All those days when I would just lounge around the house devouring books, take a much wanted vacation in the province, go to the beach. Holidays has always been made up of happy happy child hood memories that just spills over sometimes that it engulfs me with a fond longing for those days that has gone to pass but oftentimes lay in the deep recess of my subconscious, sleeping and unnoticed. These days, i have short of forgotten really what it is that all these holidays stand for. Whether it's to pay respect to a dead hero, give thanks to all our blessings, society has really changed for the worse. It is a challenge for everyone to make the next generation understand that.Hopefully.
