Blame it on Christmas day.

It was really nice to celebrate Christmas day with people you love. My family should always be complete during Christmas eve, We dine together when the clock strikes 12mn, then the best part, exchanging gifts...but that was before, like more than 10 years ago. Ever since my father died and my siblings got married, its very seldom that we get complete during Christmas eve which we all have to understand and accept.

Two days ago was Christmas eve, though were not complete, we still had fun, good food and a few exchange gifts, though i know it would be better if we were complete, but I guess the true meaning was to be with the ones you love, no matter what you have on your table or no matter if you dont have gifts to give and received.

Then came Christmas the following day, my family went to our relatives to have a sort of a mini reunion, my aunts, uncle and cousins were there, even our nephews and neices and grandparents too, we always do that on Christmas day.

But i had a small request, and that is to be with my special someone on Christmas day. But sad to say, it didnt happened. How i wish it did, even for just a short time, it could have, but it didnt. So now im just embracing the silence of being alone on this most awaited day of the year.

The silence that you hear, somehow brings back the memories.
