Amidst the terrible circumstances that hit the country this year, there’s definitely no stopping ABS-CBN from bringing light and joy in the lives of Filipinos by releasing its highly anticipated ABS-CBN Christmas ID 2020: “Ikaw Ang Liwanag At Ligaya” on Tuesday, December 1, right after the live broadcast of TV Patrol.
Featuring the three big bosses and some of the stars and employees of the Kapamilya network, as well as the ordinary Kapamilyas whose experiences and stories have inspired us and tugged our heartstrings and the Filipino workers and families overseas, the music video displayed the unwavering bayanihan spirit and relentless optimism of Pinoys that we’re able to exude in the dark and trying times we had this year.
This also shows how we’re still able to provide light and joy to our fellowmen despite our own hardships, as well as how our generosity and compassion have brought hope to others, especially those who were awfully affected by COVID-19 virus and the catastrophic typhoons that devastated the country. Our undying faith to God was displayed as well through the prayers of hope and deliverance uttered in the beginning and end of the music video.
As loyal avid Kapamilya viewers giddily waited for it in the past weeks and days after the recording lyric video was released, netizens took to social media to share how excited, happy, and teary-eyed they were for the Christmas ID and how the network has never failed to touch their hearts through the years.
The hashtag #IkawAngLiwanagAtLigaya swiftly soared to the number 1 top trending topics on Twitter along with the other topics and hashtags related to the MV release.
Here are some of the rave tweets from the Kapamilya netizens we’ve spotted:
Merry Christmas, Kapamilya!
