New Year, New Beginning

It is January 6, and many people here (Philippines) are just "shedding off" the Christmas break feeling! Many enjoyed the long vacation from work because December 25th, Christmas Day fell on a Friday! So there's four days off from office works followed by several days off for the New Year celebration.

Christmas is being celebrated for almost a week in the Philippines. It ends during the first Sunday of January which is called the Feast of the Ephiphany, when the Three Wise Men sought and visited the Baby Jesus in the Manger.

So after the long Christmas celebration, everyone are looking ahead towards the new year, which many wish would give them better opportunities, more success in their jobs or business, and a renewed will to exert their best to make their lives happier and successful.

Here's wishing everyone in Persona Paper the best of everything this new year!

Christmas is not celebrated in Thailand. Some people, however, will celebrate the New Year for up to two weeks!

Happy new year Paulie . It is a celebration that is most-awaited here in our country particularly those who are Catholics.

New Year is something great only that we all don't lose all that hopes and motivation we gain at the start of the year to start a new journey and be the best on what we did last year will last until we see the fruit of our faiths and of what we seed through faith.
