2020 for Philippines have been plagued with so many adversaries such as political conflicts, record typhoons, and the Covid 19 pandemic, which led most to ask if it still even worth it to celebrate Christmas. this seem to be the main theme by the top Philippine TV stations in their Christmas station IDs this year.
ABS-CBN treated their disenfranchisement, where over 11,000 employees got laid off, as inspiration in “Ikaw ang Liwanag at Ligaya” (“You are the Light and Joy”), which also serve as a collective prayer of all Kapamilya who continue to hope despite the odds.
GMA 7 “Isang Puso Ngayong Pasko” focus on being one in heart as Filipinos are encouraged to stand up, be healed and not lose faith.
TV5 Philippines “Tuloy Pa Rin and Pasko” reminds us no matter what life’s challenges bring us as long as we face everything together, Christmas is still on!
hope we all be inspired by the songs, be united, and find joy in whatever we still all have this coming Christmas!
