Christmas is undeniably one of the most highly anticipated seasons of the year, especially here in the Philippines. Aside from listening and/or singing along to heartwarming and festive yuletide hymns on our stereos, shopping for gifts and food we’re going to prepare on noche buena, and decking our abodes with colorful and shimmering decorations, what make us excited about the holiday is it gives us the opportunity to take our well-deserved break from work and school and to spend time with our family and other loved ones.
The same goes for the Kapamilya celebrities included in this feature who enthusiastically divulged their plans are this coming Christmas.
As expected, almost all of them are going to stay at home and celebrate with their respective families since travelling is still discouraged due to the pandemic. Zaijian Jaranilla, Gillian Vicencio, Charlie Dizon, Belle Mariano and Shaina Magdayao are all certain that this is going to be the scenario for them this year.
Belle looks forward on preparing fruitcake and hot chocolate with her mom anew, Shaina will take advantage of this break to rest and spend time with her family and pamangkins, while Charlie and her parents are going to surely watch her movie “Fangirl” in the much-awaited Metro Manila Film Festival online.
Like Charlie, Barbie Imperial is also part of the MMFF 2020 through “Mang Kepweng: Ang Lihim Ng Bandang Itim” in which she’s the leading lady. She plans to watch it online together with her family and relatives who currently stay with them.
Meanwhile, Alexa Ilacad is hopeful that their traditional family gathering at her aunt’s house will still push through this year and they’ll make sure to strictly abide by the health protocols being imposed by the government.
Edward Barber will apparently do the same as he’s already now in La Union to spent the holidays with his family and relatives since they can’t fly to neither England nor Germany because of the lockdown.
On the other hand, his on-screen partner Maymay Entrata won’t be able to the same since most of her loved ones are in the province. According to her, it’s the safest thing to do for her at the moment and she will just bond with them virtually. Thus, she’s going to stay at her condo all by herself and use it as chance for her to reflect and discover new things about herself.
However, Jane De Leon and Arjo Atayde, who both appeared in the “Stethoscope” episode of Maalaala Mo Kaya, are still wishing to travel out-of-town to unwind and celebrate the holidays with their respective families. Jane hopes to take her mom to Boracay since they haven’t been there, while Arjo is just game wherever it’s safe.
How about you, Kapamilya? How are you going to celebrate Christmas this year?
