It has been a tradition (can a 10-year habit be called tradition?) in our family to celebrate Christmas eve humbly, it has been that way ever since my son came into our lives. He was born a day before Christmas so his celebration would sometimes coincide with our Noche Buena or as we already had our fill on the afternoon of his birthday, we'll only prepare a few light dishes to share on the eve of Christmas.
The dish everyone looks for when they come to visit on Christmas day, I remember eating Sotanghon every Christmas day since I was in elementary, a tradition passed by my grandmother to my mom. Yun tipong kapag walang sotanghon na handa, di kumpleto ang Pasko, kahit na hindi na ko mahilig kumain nito, hehe.

Nothing can beat jumbo and king-sized hotdog as a finger food during Christmas when you can eat and gorge yourself with food without anyone judging you, hurhur! And this is E's most, most favorite food of all time.
