It is another reason to have a simple celebration this year or none at all, just like what had happened last year after the typhoon Ondoy.

Christmas is not about gifts, feast and grand celebrations anyways. It is about love, sharing, reconciliations and forgiveness. I know it is not easy to forget that bloody incident especially for our Chinese brothers and sisters but I am hoping that they could find forgiveness in their hearts.
