Christmas season with my Fil-Am family and our Arnis club is my favorite time of year. This is the time of year when friends & families get together sharing friendship & food. No sparring or completions, just good times and parties. Visiting old & new friends. December for us is from one party or gathering to the next. In the Philippines the light the Parol Lanterns and holiday season begins. i hope that other group are doing the same and remembering that season is about giving & sharing with friends old and new. Not just spending & stressing. Take time out this Holiday season be thankful for your friends and spend some time with them.
