ABS-CBN never failed to impress viewers with heartwarming Christmas Station IDs through the years.
The best part of which is witnessing their favorite Kapamilya artists sing to the special song written for it. Among those highly anticipated appearances each year is that of Kathyrn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla together, considering that their love team has remained strong in the past five years.
Their phenomenal chemistry was first noticed in Growing Up in 2011, and were subsequently launched as a love team in their first teleserye, Princess and I in 2012. Since then, KathNiel became one of the most anticipated tandems not only on teleseryes and movies, but also on ABS-CBN Christmas Station IDs.
It was in 2012’s “Lumiliwanag ang Mundo sa Kwento ng Pasko” wherein they first popped up as a loveteam on a Kapamilya Christmas station ID, alongside their Princess and I co-stars Enrique Gil and Khalil Ramos, in which the Teen King was also one of the voices of that year’s Yuletide hymn.
In Christmas 2013, their performance in the Grand Kapamilya Weekend in 2013 was used in the Yuletide station ID, “Magkasama Tayo sa Kwento ng Pasko.”
KathNiel appeared once more and thrilled fans in the “Thank You ang Babait Ninyo” ABS-CBN Christmas 2014 Station ID by enthusiastically displaying the appreciation cards they wrote for each other.
They kept the kilig vibes aflame when they sang the holiday song “Thank You for the Love” for the Christmas station ID IN 2015 alongside fellow top Kapamilya loveteams LizQuen and JaDine.
Their appearance in “Iisang Pamilya Tayo Ngayong Pasko” in 2016 could be the most moving of all because they were able to surprise and mingle with the kids from Philippine Children’s Medical Center and Noordhoff Craniofacial Foundation Philippines, Inc.. During that heartfelt encounter, Kathryn imparted an inspiring message by telling them to brush off their insecurities and keep in mind that the most important is what’s in their hearts. Daniel also motivated them by saying how much he reveres
And in this Yuletide season, KathNiel expressed “Just Love Ngayong Christmas” with a clip during their recent bloodletting activity in cooperation with the Philippine Red Cross. In the 2017 Christmas station ID, we also see them scribbling their words of encouragement and praise to the residents and soldiers based in the war-stricken Marawi in letters they dropped in special #JustLove mailboxes.
Over the years, KathNiel has not only been a mere love pair that thrills us, but an influential tandem whose undeniable devotedness and intimacy never wavers and inspires us with messages of love in ABS-CBN Christmas Station IDs through the years.
