An early Christmas with Working Mom Magazine

Finally got a copy of Working Mom Magazine's November 2009 issue today. It's special to me because after approximately one year of writing for WM, I finally got a spot in the contributors' page entitled "Our Family". For a readable version of the page, click HERE.

Working Mom Magazine November 2009 issueFor this issue I was assigned to feature things to do as a family this Christmas season, and I came up with a list of ten spanning two pages, entitled "Holiday Fun: Ten things to do with your kids this Christmas".

Outside Casa Santa at Jardin de MiramarI started the list with a visit to Casa Santa (pictured above) at Jardin de Miramar in Antipolo City. Casa Santa is actually a beautiful two-storey house turned museum wherein it's Christmas all year round. The owner Ms. Edna Del Rosario is an avid Santa Claus collector, purchasing Santa figures, collectibles, and merchandise from just about every corner of the world during her travels. Before she knew it she had thousands of santas in all shapes, sizes, and materials... and she still keeps adding to the collection to this day!

Normally you'd have to arrange a group tour before you can see this amazing collection, but since it is that special time of year, Casa Santa will be open to the public every 1st and 3rd Saturday of December and January from 2pm to 4pm. Entrance fee is P120 per person. Our family has actually been to Casa Santa several times in the past and let me tell you it's such a great experience for the kids and kids at heart. For more information about Casa Santa and location maps, click HERE.

Aside from my Christmas activity roster, Working Mom's November issue is jam-packed with features like bargain-hunting with a customized Divisoria map, Multiply toy shopping, budget-friendly potluck dishes, understanding teens' secret codes, and tips for looking and actually being slimmer this holiday season. There are also promos and contests to join where you can win anything from Promil Pre-school gift packs to toys to pampering packages from Aesthetic Science. Grab a copy today!
