THE ABS-CBN CHRISTMAS ID 2020 | Ikaw Ang Liwanag At Ligaya
There is a light inside all of us that never goes out. It will keep on burning no matter how dark the times have become because of the trials that test our spirit. This Christmas, we remember that God is this inexhaustible source, and the goodness He instilled in us will inspire us to pass on His light to others until our collective light wins and brings us real joy.
This is the lesson imparted by the stories featured in this year’s ABS-CBN Christmas ID “Ikaw ang Liwanag at Ligaya.” Take, for example, Arjanmar and Khaye Rebeta who proved that a pandemic could not dim their love story. Or of Moching Bueno, who found joy in serving frontliners despite suffering from his own loss. God’s infinite light also shines through the love of our family, as shown in the stories of Rodolfo Ariño, a PWD breadwinner and Peter Roncales who braved all odds to reunite with his loved ones. These and many other heartwarming stories will spark hope that a joyful Christmas is possible despite the challenges of the year 2020.
