Just completed nine days of Misa de Gallo for this Advent season. As always, there's no better way to escape from the commercialism and really prepare for Christmas.
Being an early morning endeavor (a very early morning endeavor!), I can't foresee if I'll actually wake up on time each and every morning. There's always a chance that I won't. But this is what? the seventh or eighth year running that I've done the complete cycle.
And this year, I have my Mom to thank for being with me all throughout. Some mornings, she'd be the one to wake me up. We started going to Misa de Gallo two or three years ago, but this marks the first time we've done all nine days together.
