She'll Be Home For Christmas

A friend of mine has been living in Melbourne, Australia ever since she got married. Even though the place is beautiful and she loves it there, once in a while, she does get a little homesick, especially around Christmas time. Last Christmas, her family wanted to come home to celebrate Pasko here, but they had difficulty booking a ticket because international flights, including those to the Philippines were full around the time of the holidays. I'm not sure what airline they eventually picked, I believe it was Qantas, but they were only able to book for November and they were back in Australia before Christmas Day itself.

This year, they made sure that they would be able to stick around for Christmas. They told us that they booked their flights earlier. I think you can actually do that online through (the oldest travel website in Australia), maybe that's what they did in order to ensure their seats.
