ABS-CBN released their station ID for Christmas 2013 (Magkasama Tayo sa Kwento ng Pasko). I always watch out for its release because I’m always touched by their presentation and it brings back lots of good memories of my Christmases when I was back home. It is a heartwarming reminder to all OFW’s that there is nothing like a Pinoy Christmas.
If you think about it, and it has been publicized globally that Pinoys celebrate the longest Christmas season in the world. You start hearing Christmas songs playing in the month of September and lasting all the way through Ephiphany or what we know as “Three Kings” which is in the first week of January.
I will never forget the years I spent Christmas in the Philippines. My friends have decided to go home this Christmas and I know that they are going to have a blast. I couldn’t because I still have commitments at school and it is quite expensive to go home during the holidays. BUt one day, I will go back and one day, I will get to experience how great it is to spend Christmas in the Philippines.
