Our New Year
This picture was taken in New Year's Eve with my sister, Mom and Dad. Two of my sisters had married to an American man, and they moved to the United Stated. One of my older brother lives at General Santos with my uncle and cousins, the my oldest brother who is working abroad was on board. So, just Us left at home and celebrate the traditional Filipino New Year with foods and fruits and light some fire crakers. The food symbolizes abundance and we filipino believed that if there is food on the table, we will have abundant of food all the time and we will never be run out of it. Making some noise on new years eve getting rid of bad spirits and bad luck and lighting fire crakers will make the sound louder and fire works as well. The 12 different kinds of fruits represent abundance and blessings.
