9 Days Before Christmas

Every December 16, nine days before Christmas, is the start of Simbang Gabi or Misa de Gallo. I just found out today that Gallo is a spanish word which means "rooster." That is why the mass is held early in the morning supposedly just after the rooster crows. Some people believe that if you complete all 9 masses in 9 days, the Almighty Father will grant you a wish. (^o^)/

As for me, I have no plans of attending any this year. Back when I was in Cebu, last year, with the encouragement of friends, I was able to attend the first day of mass, but that was about it. hehehe (^^;)

Instead , this year, I plan to do 9 Days of Jogging before Christmas! One of my wishes is definitely to stay healthy and fit. With conflicting schedules due to school, I'm missing one badminton session every week already. That and having have to taste all my baked goodies have brought about a plumper me. Hopefully I'll be able to do enough to offset all the food I will be eating during the holidays and still lose some weight.

On my next post, I'll show you why it isn't so bad to jog around our subdivision at night during this time of the year.

Merry Christmas Everyone!
Happy Holidays!
