I Hear Christmas Already.

I think it was the last Wednesday morning of the previous month, I was going about my work diligently (ahem, am using this term rather loosely... ahem...) when the familiar polyphonic Christmas tunes from the Chrismas tree four-coloured running lights back at the home in hometown suddenly started playing at the back of my mind. I was immediately brought back to the night scene of the dimly lit Christmas tree in the living room...

Back home, for the few years before I came to the big city to, uh, work (gave up on most of the rest of the reasons already, sigh...), I assigned myself to the task of decorating the Christmas tree at home, a task which I actually reveled in. *blush*

And on some nights, I would switch off the living room lights, leaving just the Christmas tree running lights on, with the lights' polyphonic Christmas tunes playing softly while I lay myself on one of the living room sofas, my mind occasionally drifting to that Christmas scene some 2000 years ago where it all began...

Oh, how I miss the tranquility...

Man... Made me miss celebrating Christmas at home even more... T_T

I miss going for Christmas carolling... I miss the annual Christmas procession... I miss the Christmas masses, especially the grand hallelujah song... Oh, the nostalgia...

Everything is so different and strange here in the big city. I don't think I'll ever adapt to the way things are organized here... I really do feel so out of place, most of the time...

Perhaps I should make it a point to go back for Christmas every year too...

Or just go back for real.
