Hi My Friends!
Today is Day 8 of Littlemas, and today is all about getting to know your partner better. Everyone has a cultural background. Even if you don’t live it on a day to day basis, it’s always nice to know where your ancestral roots come from. For my Daddy and I, we are a beautiful mix of Irish/English (me) heritage, and Filipino (Daddy) heritage. Culture plays a big part of my life and my little space, so today I welcome you into my world a little bit to get a glimpse at what the holidays look like from a different point of view.
My Daddy comes from Metro Manila, Philippines. He immigrated to the United States over a decade ago, but still his roots play a very important part of our household. While I don’t speak Tagalog fluently, I do understand quite a bit. In Little Space, he will switch over and speak to me in Tagalog to give me simple commands. I absolutely love it. Around the holidays, we feast on pancit canton, lechon (ham), and lumpia (egg rolls). We nosh on polvorones and I make bibingka for him too! These are pieces of our culture that we share with each other on Christmas. What do you do as a cultural tradition for Christmas?
If you don’t have any traditions to share, don’t worry. I have you covered 😉 ! Today’s free printable lists 10 cultural traditions from around the world. Give one a try with your daddy/mommy and see how you like it! 🙂 You never know, maybe you’ll like it so much that you’ll make it an annual tradition.
Alright, that’s it from me for today, my friends! Stay tuned for the next blog post. Have a wonderful weekend, and as always, keep on smiling! 🙂
