Things I Look Forward To During Christmas Family Reunions

Towards the end of each year, there’s nothing I look forward to more than our Christmas family reunion. That’s because it’s the one day of the year when all the members of our family — sometimes even those who live abroad — come home to celebrate Christmas. It’s that one day of the year when there are more than 10 families under one roof and spend crazy loving time together.

Here are some of the things — silly and nice– that I look forward to during Christmas family reunions that are just too cute not to share:

Β 1. Celebrate Christmas in Every Color Imaginable

Yep. A few months before December, we plan on what our color theme would be for the upcoming Christmas family reunion and we send out texts to everyone letting the know what our color motif will be.

Christmas 2011

We had Green in 2010, Red for 2011, Blue for 2012, Pink for 2013, and Yellow for 2014.

As you can see, we only have one venue for our Christmas family reunion and that’s at my Aunt’s house. She has the biggest house in the family and can definitely accommodate everyone.

3. The Kid’s Photo on the Stairs

Yes, we gather all our nieces and nephews.. .basically the fourth generation kids in the family and we place them on the stairs yearly for a photo opp. This was done to us by our aunts and uncles and has somehow become a family tradition. By looking at the kid’s yearly photo on the stairs, you can track how much they’ve grown through the years.

4. Lechon Moments

My pose with the Lechon arm is charming… Aminin!

Yes, there’s always agawan sa crunchy balat ng lechon every year!

5. Being Human Christmas Trees with Christmas Lights

I found these Chistmas necklaces that light up from Divisoria and they are just begging to be worn on Christmas Eve. Yes, tumeterno kami sa Christmas lights sa labas ng bahay.

6. Christmas Eve Celebrations

I love Christmas Eve with the family. Somehow, it makes it more meaningful and full of love.

7. Lady’s Choice Macaroni Salad

Of course! Christmas won’t be complete without everyone’s favorite rich and creamy Lady’s Choice Macaroni Salad on the Christmas table. This year, I will make sure to prepare more because everyone’s been asking for a little extra to take home.

What are you looking forward to your Christmas family reunions this year?

  1. Nagiging tradisyon na rin sa family namin ang magsuot ng color-coordinated na shirts pag Pasko. Iba talaga ang Paskong Pinoy! The best! πŸ™‚

    P.S. Panalo yung umiilaw na Christmas necklaces! πŸ™‚

  2. I envy you for having such a big and happy family. I always wished we can do the same but the distance doesn’t permit us and our parents are not with us anymore. But still, I am trying to make a memorable Christmas and New Year with my own family now. Happy New Year Sis and Family.

  3. Macaroni salad is also a staple in our holiday celebrations!

    PS the stairs photo is such a cute one! Just imagine what it will look like when they recreate it!

  4. Since we had our own home, Macaroni Salad is always present in the table for Noche Buena.
    It is really nice to have family reunion not only to have more fun celebrating Christmas but to meet other relatives lalo na ung matagal ng hindi nakikita.

  5. Nakakatuwa naman that you have a family reunion each year. I wish we can do the same each year. Oh, I always love making macaroni salad, especially with Lady’s Choice Real Mayo.

  6. Love your photos Sis! Super fun and cool especially knowing that your whole family are happy. I agree! Macaroni salad is always a MUST especially on holiday.

  7. Love love love all the family photos! Indeed, the family reunion is one more reason we look forward to Christmas eve celebrations πŸ™‚

  8. Family gatherings are absolutely lovely. But not for us. The relatives we have were not pleasing. πŸ˜€

    Happy Christmas!! πŸ™‚ Cheer to 2016.
