A tropical country has only two seasons; wet and dry or the summer and rainy days. We don’t get to see a dramatic transition of these two seasons unlike in places where there are four. Unless, these seasons bring forth more than what they should deliver. Like when rains pour than normal, we experience flood and landslides which makes this gloomy season gloomier. Or when the summer months scourge more than it should, we see drought and devastation of crops. Well, that’s a different kind of drama. Can you picture it? Maybe not at this time where I’m having a grand time enjoying this ‘season’.
So, in this week’s photo challenge I would like to focus on the season that we’ve deliberately added to our lives and everyone hopes it lasts year round. It’s the season where everybody is joyful and hopeful of the great memories it could bring. It’s the season where families reunite, enemies reconcile and everyone sings a happy tune of lullabies. The seasons which like tides makes people nicer and kind. It’s the season that sends people to the malls to buy gifts not for themselves but for people everywhere. It’s the season that makes houses, trees and roads turns colorful and bright. It’s the season that turns regular breads to fruit cakes and ordinary meals to feasts. It’s the season of hope, camaraderie and friendship. The season that brings good cheer to everyone who anticipates it. It’s the season that we look forward from the moment it ends and rush to it the moment September starts. The season that we celebrate the grandest and perhaps the longest. It’s the season that commemorate the birth of the one who saves the people of the earth. It’s the season that does not only change our surroundings but our hearts as well. It’s the Yuletide Season, our favorite season of all.
From the tropical paradise of the Philippines – I wish all of you to enjoy this wonderful season.
