It's already the last day of August today and it's going to be September. In the Philippines, September is quite a significant month because it's the start of the 'ber' months ( September, October, November and December). Although Christmas is still going to be three months away, but people are already getting geared up for it starting in September. Some TV stations already start the Christmas countdown but things peak up after the last halloween props have been taken down.
Oh, writing about this now, makes me quite excited. We're going back to the Philippines for Christmas and of course, I'll be doing a countdown.
