I was in Roxas City with my wife and two kids (actually, adults) in 2011 during the Christmas holidays.
Cool night air, wonderful and delicious food (remember, Roxas City is the seafood capital of the Philippines), especially the hot peanuts by the cathedral, family, Christmas carols, and Baybay Beach.
This was the last year I spent Christmas with my mom. We, including my sister’s family, went to Mt. Carmel Parish for midnight mass. On the way home from church to Baybay, we passed by the plaza, the provincial capitol, and the cathedral and were greeted by a wondrous sight of Christmas lights.
I am sharing these with you and I hope you can feel the joy I felt when we descended from the Roxas Avenue bridge towards the plaza.
