The Mindset of an Entrepreneur
A Better Year
It’s the early days of 2024 and I just want to greet my readers and the entire nation a Happy and Prosperous New Year!
Everybody seems upbeat in this joyous season. We’ve had a good noche buena or midnight feast, and meaningful bonding with our close kin on Christmas. We’re bullish for the coming New Year—the best way to welcome 2024.
Why Traditions Matter
We did not have much growing up. We never had lavish food nor plenty of money. We were a big family with two hard working parents. So I do not have memories of extravagant Christmases with plenty of toys or gifts. But what I do have are precious memories of Christmas traditions. Filipino culture is steeped with traditions especially during Christmas. Sadly, some of those practices have been eroding but some families have stubbornly maintained these traditions.
