Illongo Conscript Christmas

The few beautiful parols made by inmates in bacolod provincial jail

A tree in a comrade's house recently the dacha didn't have a tree this season coz it was nowhere to be found and we didn't have the time to get one..
Well 24th and 25th of December is a calendar mark by every illongos around town its a perihelia of reunions, company christmas parties, and so on well for me today is just a special day that we know someone was born to save a lost world..

well anyways here's some pics from my activities I did from 24th to this 25th..

family reunion from my babushka's family side..
mmm.. this little girl just loves that salad..
now that's a mouthful..
Another mouthful..
oh watch the kids gobble up entire plates..

well right in the afternoon I went around still people in the 24 are still busy look at the traffic in Lacson Street..

Love the Tree...

Well anyways, here's more from a children's Christmas party..

A Christmas quiz..
love those happy faces of the young illonga pioneers..
Gifts and prizes galore.. every little pioneer wants one..

you gotta love how this young conscript vows to herself not to touch such beautiful cupcakes for the little ones even though she is that hungry... and wants to pick one!
This guy can't wait for the cotton candy..
I think she knows the answer...

Illonga kawaiiness never fails to scribd the eye..

whats happy about this, this kids are part of child development center which aids such kids like them by giving them incentives and monetary funding in order for them to continue their eduction.. 
Parents eat out with their kids as they get their rations up, well its so good to see the madlang mahirap  smile..

you gotta be kidding me how she gobbles up that small cupcake in one gobble..

after such a hectic week, I decided to doze around and chat with some comrades, well such a week you just need to cool down from the ruckus of the season and share some experiences..

Well something for you guys to know the true meaning of the week im in and your in; 

lets just ponder on this girl.. 

Well to all my comrades, here's something you can ponder about this 25th, the true meaning of Christmas..

The true meaning of Christmas is love. John 3:16-17 says, "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him." The true meaning of Christmas is the celebration of this incredible act of love.

The real Christmas story is the story of God's becoming a human being in the Person of Jesus Christ. Why did God do such a thing? Because He loves us! Why was Christmas necessary? Because we needed a Savior! Why does God love us so much? Because He is love itself (1 John 4:8). Why do we celebrate Christmas each year? Out of gratitude for what God did for us, we remember His birth by giving each other gifts, worshipping Him, and being especially conscious of the poor and less fortunate.

The true meaning of Christmas is love. God loved His own and provided a way—the only Way—for us to spend eternity with Him. He gave His only Son to take our punishment for our sins. He paid the price in full, and we are free from condemnation when we accept that free gift of love. "But God demonstrated His own love for us in this: while we were still sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8).

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays Comrades!!
