Thank you for Filipino family reunions!

If there’s one thing that I’ve been absolutely thankful for in the past few days, it’s the fact that we Filipinos like holding family or clan reunions.

There’s just something fun and magical about Filipino family reunions, don’t you agree? More often than not, these traditional Filipino reunions are noisy, crazy, fiesta-like and absolutely full of food and games! So you can just imagine the craziness if it’s a grand clan reunion!

Two days ago, I attended our grandest clan reunion yet. It was the most-awaited, too, since my aunt, who hasn’t been home in nearly 10 years, has flown in from New York with her new husband.

Save for relatives who simply cannot join because of work, a lot of us came and shared in the merriment. All of us came with huge smiles on our faces. Some cousins were busy cooking, others were busy preparing the parlor games while most of the titos and titas talked about the yesteryears. The apos and apos-sa-tuhod were all busy playing, watching TV or surfing the net and adding each other’s Facebook accounts. The tween cousins were busy talking about fashion trends and which hair color to pick the next time they visit a salon. The “older” cousins (ahem, ahem) were also busy sharing photography tips and tips on how to create better videos. Almost everyone had a role to play that day – photographer, videographer, host, guitarist, prize keeper etc.

And everyone was eager to play their role really well — because each and every one knew that all their efforts was also a way of saying “I love you” and “thank you” to relatives đŸ™‚

Ah — family reunions. What a blessing!
