Month of "ber"

Oops!..i know whats in your mind. I'm not talking about the alcoholic beverage "beer" but I'm referring to the four months that ends with "ber". September to December where the summer is about to end then fall season start and chilly weather remind lots of different occasions.

I'm getting excited now, these different events will be my first time to celebrate here in US. I've listed some major holiday where Americans celebrate.

Halloween is a holiday celebrated on October 31. People wear horror costumes, carving pumpkins and trick or treat around neighborhood. Thanksgiving Day is the fourth Thursday in November. Most people celebrate by gathering at home with family and friends for a holiday feast. Lots of food and turkey is being serve in dinner.And here we go, Christmas day!!! It is an annual holiday celebrated on 25th of December that commemorates the birth of Jesus. A time of giving and sharing what we have.

We Filipinos used to celebrate the long occasions like Christmas holiday, "ber" month is the start when we count down the days til Christmas time. Radio stations begins to play Christmas songs and Christmas decors are all over the place.

And to make it exact, its 121 days to go...yay!!!
