Sadly, people in this place have to wake up early on the 25th not to go their relatives but to go to work. Even New Year isn't a holiday! Boo!
I'm currently not working, but I'm affected too! Haha I can't celebrate and stay up late, go out until it's twelve because everyone needs to take a rest for the following day's work. Too bad Christmas is not considered as a holiday in this place! 🙂 I still feel bad for the filipinos who'll work during Christmas. Haha I've experienced it when I was working and it's difficult because the night before was a celebration with your friends and relatives. Either you stay up late or go home early. Really bad. Haha. I hope people here will consider giving foreigners Christmas vacation in the future. :))
