フィリピンのクリスマスをデイジーがレポしてくれています♪

一足先にクリスマス気分を味わってみてください(^^)

As early as September, Christmas is already in the air here in my city. Actually, the Philippines is one of the countries with the longest Christmas season across the globe. Preparations for the holiday takes almost half a year. The radio usually plays our all-time favorite holiday songs once the months ending in “BER’’ start. We get to see a lot of Christmas attractive decorations and colorful lights everywhere. People also start to buy something special for their family and loved ones. They look forward to back-to-back sales at various shopping malls to buy presents and Christmas items in advance.
Although Christmas this year is different from the previous ones due to the ongoing corona virus outbreak, I can still feel the resilience and optimistic attitude of the people around me. For us Filipinos, Christmas is a time to set aside personal problems and to have a positive outlook about life despite all the challenges brought about by the pandemic. People continue to live up to the spirit of giving and sharing.
I always look forward to celebrating Christmas and spending quality time with my family every year. I have become even more excited and interested in preparing for the holidays ever since we had our son, baby Matthew. Last year, I decorated our Christmas tree at home with colorful bells, stars and sparkling lights. Our son loved it especially because he was astonished to see the bright colors surrounding the little Christmas tree.
This year, I have decided to re-use our old decorations and lights to minimize the cost. But I added pictures of Matthew’s favorite cartoon characters from Cocomelon. My son is really amazed to see pictures of his favorite Cocomelon characters on the Christmas tree. He also loves to watch the Christmas medley videos of Cocomelon online. He claps his hands and dances to the beautiful melody of these upbeat songs. Seeing my son’s excitement for the Christmas season makes my heart burst with happiness and joy. It makes me realize that the real essence of Christmas is not really about the material things that we get nor the attractive decors around us, it is actually a celebration and thanksgiving for the gifts of life and family. It is a season of love and sharing that is definitely worth celebrating for.

 

日本は12月に入らないと街はクリスマスモードになりませんが、

フィリピンは8月9月からクリスマスシーズンに突入し、

長い間クリスマスが楽しまれることで有名ですよね♪

 

国が違えば文化風習も大きく異なりますね。

クリスマスはさておき

マシュー君が好きなキャラはCocomelonなんですね♪

フィリピンの母国語はタガログなので

英語は第二言語になります。

その第二言語としての英語をフィリピンの子どもたちが

どうやって身に付けていくのか興味深いところです。

 

デイジー先生のマシュー君への

英語の与え方、気になりますね~~~。
