Everybody just loves Christmas Day. Religious and non-religious people alike won't disagree to say it's one of the best holidays we've got every year. On that day, people gather with family and friends to enjoy a festive meal and exchange gifts as they celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. No work. There's a lot of food. People's mood are positive. Everybody seems to be getting along. Amazing, isn't?

Putting aside our religious differences for a while, what can we do to "feel" the tradition of celebrating a season of peace, love and giving? Okay, here are 10 things to do:

1. Send Christmas cards to family and friends wishing them a merry Christmas and a happy new year.
2. Set up a live or artificial Christmas tree in your home. Decorate it with ornaments and lights.
3. Hang decoration in a doorway. It is traditional for people to kiss when they stand
4. Place lights and other decorations on the outside of your house and on your outdoor shrubs and trees.
5. Buy gifts for family and friends and pile them under the tree.

6. Ask your children to write down a wish list of the toys they would like to receive.
7. Play Christmas music in your house to get in the holiday spirit; some popular choices include "Silent Night" and "Pasko na Sinta ko."
8. Prepare a huge Christmas feast with foods such as Keso de Bola, ham, salad and vegetables; serve fruits for dessert. Include other favorite recipes from your childhood holiday meals.
9. Attend church on Christmas Eve.
10. Remember that the true meaning of the season is really about giving.

Help those less fortunate than you are at this time of year. Donate a toy for a needy child, or give food to a food drive or homeless shelter so others can enjoy a holiday meal. Christmas is celebrated around the world in a wide variety of ways. Incorporate traditions from other cultures into your own festivities to create your own unique traditions. Above all, show the true spirit of Christmas — love!
