Christmas is undoubtedly every Filipino’s favorite holiday. Decorations are hung as soon as the ber-months hit. Churches are crowded as family and friends follow the tradition of Simbang Gabi. And month-long sales welcome everyone’s 13-month pay. Aside from the parties and gift giving, Kapamilya teleseryes also featured the values that embody the holiday spirit.
