White Christmas in the Philippines?

MANILA, Philippines  A white Christmas in the Philippines? Why not?

It's more fun in the Philippines!

Exactly a year ago today, I was enjoying a white Christmas at Boracay Island in Aklan. No snow. Just white powdery sand.

I've been to Boracay during both the summer and Christmas holidays. While the beach was to die for on both occasions, I still prefer it in December. It isn't as cramped, the weather isn't as hot, and there's less algae in the water compared to the summer.

Some rated-PG highlights from last December:

Boracay isn't as crowded in December compared to the summer months

Will there be a white Christmas for me this year? Probably not. Even if I terribly miss the beach, I've decided to be a homebody over the holidays to give my body (and wallet) a break. 

Next year, perhaps!
