As early as September, Filipinos rush in the nearest malls, bazaars or the infamous Divisoria to cross of some items on their Christmas list.
The next worry would be to choose the best place to celebrate Christmas and who you’re going to spend it with. As a nation who’s deeply rooted to our family values, it’s only obvious that you’re celebrating it with your relatives. May it just be in your house or a trip abroad, what’s important is that the spirit of giving is present in us.
If you’re wondering what our local celebrities are planning for this year’s holidays then this is the right place for you. Here are 7 of them who were glad to share their wishes and what they’re doing this year.
1. Solenn Heussaff
The family of the sexy Kapuso actress chose to spend their Christmas in the beautiful island of Palawan. Solenn also gave a good tip for those who are still clueless on what gifts they should buy. Why not make it personal? As long as the intent is there, she said it will be appreciated.
2. Piolo Pascual
Just like Solenn, Papa P is keeping it local. Instead of spending it in the United States like the past few years, they’re going to experience Misa de Gallo and gift giving on Christmas Eve here in the Philippines. He also advised everyone to take this as an opportunity to work on our relationship with God.
As for his wish, he remained selfless since he wanted nothing but stability and safety for every Filipino. This is why everyone loves this man.
3. Sam Milby
Another Kapamilya hunk expressed his longingness for his family who’s living in Ohio. He said he already misses the snowy Christmas but due to his schedule, he has to abandon his plans abroad and decided to stay in the country.
Don’t worry, Sam won’t be lonely since he got his girlfriend Mari Jasmine to spend Christmas with.
In case you’re wondering, Sam is a man who loves gadgets and anything techie! So he mentioned about getting a new computer as a gift for himself.
4. Karylle Tatlonghari-Yuzon
Karylle becomes the female version of Santa Claus every year. Instead of spending it on her own needs, she chooses to give back to Child Haus, a non-government organization which shelters the family of poor cancer patients.
We bet you will be in awe upon knowing that she has been doing this for 11 straight years! That’s some real dedication.
If you have a heart of gold like Karylle, she’s encouraging everyone to check their My Pledge website to fulfill the kids’ Christmas wishes for this year.
5. Carla Abellana
Carla’s family is one of the traditional ones here in the Philippines. Their large family gathers in their grandmother’s house every year. Even though some of her relatives have already made their plans for the holidays, she still wishes for them to be together.
Sometimes, a gathering with our relatives who we haven’t seen for years is just the best way to go.
6. Alden Richards
Alden Richards is known for his perseverance to give his family all the best. When asked what his plans were for this year, he answered that it will be the usual. They will be spending it in Laguna where they get to be thankful for an obviously abundant year for the actor.
7. Maine Mendoza
This one is a rather tricky situation. Maine excitedly announced that they will be flying somewhere for the holidays. Last year, her family already visited the festive streets of Japan during Christmas so we’re still wondering what’s their destination for 2016.
