holidays away from home

The main reason why one becomes an Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW) is to provide a better life for his/her family. This translates to sacrificing the freedom that living in the Philippines entails, which includes spending time with loved ones for as long as a Filipino desires to. This also means having to endure endless lonely nights and going home every day to a place that he/she would never consider a permanent home. Ultimately, the saddest truth that haunts an OFW is not being able to celebrate important occasions with the family, specifically Christmas and New Year.
