Flavors of the season With just 15 days to go before Christmas, the scent of the holidays is smelt all around. Christmas favorites like bibingka and puto bumbong are sold almost everywhere, securing their niche as “flavors of the season”. Probably almost everyone just cannot let the season pass without tasting food specially made only during this time of the year. We, Filipinos, are well-known Christmas lovers, indeed we are. That no matter how difficulties test the endurance of our patience, we remain jubilant and festive everytime Christmas season comes. We manage to spend lavishly for the traditional Noche Buena for our families to share. We make it a point that we plan what we are going to cook for Christmas Eve, for the simple joy of partaking a meal with people who are dear to us. Hamon, queso de bola, kalamay, leche flan, lechon, ensaymada, macaroni salad, fruit salad, nilagang baka, halayang ube, suman – no matter how tight our budgets are, there would surely be one or two of these foods served on our dining tables for our Noche Buena. But notwithstanding all the lavishness, let us keep in mind that the true spirit of the season embeds not on how much we spend to celebrate it, not on how lavish our dishes are, but on how much we can share for others especially the underprivileged. The real meaning of Christmas is giving and sharing. And as the calendar nears to stash its last leaf, let us reflect on the things that we did during the last 350 days. Did we, at any point, extend our help? Or did we share our blessings to the needy? The year is not yet ended, we still have time to show the real spirit of Christmas. William L. Beltran, PIA-3
