Maymay and Edward treat fans with the best New Year gift – a ‘kilig’ and feel-good movie with a unique love story! But before “Princess Dayareese” brings us all the smiles and butterflies on the first day of 2021, the loveteam charms us first in a virtual game that sparks Christmas cheer and childhood memories.
In this edition of Kapamilya Chat, the celebrated tandem took on the Sing The Acronym Challenge wherein they’d guess the title of popular Christmas songs given only the acronym, and sing a few lines from these jingles.
Watch Maymay feel her inner Popstar Royalty by belting out “All I Want for Christmas Is You,” “Oh, Holy Night,” “Joy to the World,” Feliz Navidad,” “We Wish You a Merry Christmas,” and “Ang Pasko Ay Sumapit.”
Edward got the correct answers for “Jingle Bells,” “12 Days of Christmas,” and “Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer.” At the end of 10 rounds, Maymay won with 6 points!
Unlike Maymay who used to go house-to-house as a kiddie caroller, Edward didn’t experience such traditions growing up in Germany. He said carolling in Germany includes festive costumes, props, choreography, and rehearsed vocal blending unlike in the Philippines where kids can go door-to-door bringing only their DIY musical instruments. He added that in his homeland, carollers expect a bigger amount of money while kids here brim with joy when handed a few coins.
However we choose to celebrate Christmas and whatever traditions we practice, what matters is the joy and love we pass on to others in this season.
