When the cool breeze of December sparks your holiday spirit, this only means that everyone’s favorite time of the year has rolled around again—Christmas time!
This is the most wonderful time of the year to be merry and gay, and the best excuse to grant one of the wishes you listed on your endless Christmas wishlist: to have a good time with family and friends. By having a good time with them, we mean sharing another round of trite yet still funny jokes every night leading to Christmas and rediscovering that sharing a cup of coffee with them while playing charades is worthwhile, no matter how bitter the dregs are.
Of course, there is no better way to spend the Christmas holiday other than to have a break away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
But thinking of the long hour drive or two just to get to the place where you wish to spend your holiday getaway is already tiring. The nerve-racking honking of multitude of cars within your radius merged into the choking stress of traffic jams at intersections can dampen your holiday spirit.
So why not spend your best holiday getaway in your own condo?
When you spend the best time of the year in your condo, especially at One Pacific Residence, a lot of things are in store for you. You are saving yourself from the hassle of a long drive while making the most out of your holiday.
At The Mactan Newtown, one of Megaworld’s beautiful township in Lapu-Lapu City, you can swim with your siblings like Olympian in the 20-meter lap pool, breathe with ease with your parents in the Tai Chi area or sit by the balcony with friends or neighbors and share funny stories while watching the rain turn animated blobs of color.
You can do more in your own condo during the holiday season! Here are some ideas:
Follow your style…then go decorate your condo
Christmas will not be totally Christmas without the colorful flickering lights and the tall Christmas tree giving your spacious condo unit a Christmas vibe.
Christmas is the time of the year to rekindle old flames. You can invite your high school and college friends over to decorate your condo home complete with lights, parol and belen. You can let your creative juices do the decorating.
You can have a white Christmas themed condo or paint a laughing Santa Claus with his whole reindeer gang on your walls.
While Christmas is about sharing your blessings, make the reindeer project of the Megaworld, a fundraising activity helping children born with cleft palate, your inspiration.
Sing your favorite Christmas songs
Drown yourself with the perfect harmony of the Christmas songs. We’re sure your neighbor will not mind you belting a few lines of your favorite Christmas song under the spirit of the holidays.
Read your children a classic Christmas story
Spend the most wonderful time of the year with your little folks. Read your children the bedtime Christmas classic story, The Night Before Christmas by Clement C. Moore. This could them an idea of how Santa delivers his gifts to good children during Christmas.
Cook your favorite dish and share it
Food is one of the million reasons to be happy this Christmas.
You can borrow the cookbook your mother inherited from her grandmother, and get busy in your kitchen. You can have the Filipino all-time favorite dishes just like the bibingka and puto bumbong after attending a misa de gallo, cook hamonado, spaghetti or lumpiang ubod for dinner and prepare some fruit salad and leche flan as desserts.
Then invite your family over dinner at your condo before the clock strikes midnight.
Host a Christmas party and exchange gifts
After dinner, you can have a little exchanging of gifts to make Christmas more memorable.
Relax by the beach…or do what your gut tells you
Christmas is also finding yourself. If you just want to feel the moment, you can relax by the beach and watch the sunset as it unfolds into a living masterpiece. You can also do many things and play by the beach, especially if you have a condo unit in a luxurious development project like One Pacific Residence that sits just a few meters from the beach.
