It’s that time of year again. Despite the difficulties of 2020, Christmas is something we will always celebrate. It may not be the season of plenty as we had been used to in the past but we know it is the season of giving, of sharing.
This pandemic is tough, we know. It got everyone off guard. No one was prepared for it. Many lost their jobs, their sources of income, businesses shut down and employees got laid off.
But we are a nation of strong-willed people that do not just stand and watch things happen. We get things done. We are known for our resilience; no matter how difficult life is, we smile and face the day as usual. Our happiness meter is hard to break. Resiliency, ingenuity, perseverance, and love for family fuel our hearts to seek ways to survive, to live.
And then there were those who discovered they can get by with cooking. So they opened their tiny shops, small businesses that have mushroomed via social media. Food delivery services helped a lot in this area, too. If you were like me, you won’t mind paying a little more for quality food—cooked and prepared soulfully and lovingly, just how food should be.
So here is a list of food that you can enjoy and share with everyone you love. With less than 40 days to Christmas, these gift ideas and delectations for the holidays could be a better option to feel the season’s cheer and the warmth in giving and sharing. Do contact them through their social networks and/or numbers while it is early! And yes, you’re welcome in advance.
