Christmas this year in Cagayan de Oro and the other areas affected by Sendong would have to be the best Christmas that I see in my years of existence. For the past, let me admit it, it was self centered since you are concerned with the gifts you will buy for your friends and family. The food you will prepare for your noche buena. The people you will invite to dine in and the gifts you duly wrap to whom you know who to give.
However this year, it is so different. You tend to give money but you do not know who will receive it. You stacked away your old clothes and give it to someone you barely even know. And the best thing is, you give without expecting a gift in return. More than the item you donated, you give them hope, you give them compassion, you give them love. And that definitely screams Christmas.
