Pasko sa Pilipinas! (Christmas in the Philippines)

“The spirit of the season never has to end as long as you keep your loved ones near, and the holiday wish in your heart.” – Jiminy Cricket

Disney has always brought us so many wonderful family movies… Now i am proud and it’s about time that the Filipino tradition is being featured in the newest 2020 Disney Christmas Advert.
From the child putting an elder’s hand to her forehead to show respect while saying “Mano Po” … to the Christmas tradition of hanging  star shaped lanterns “parol” on the windows … to the child’s drawing on the shelf saying “to Lola” meaning To Grandma.

It is a unique Christmas spirit that the Philippines has and I am proud to share it with you. Thank you Disney and to the great artists and animators involved in this Advert!

  1. Thank you. I had never heard of this custom before your post. I love to learn something new through the posts of others here on WordPress. What a lovely way to show respect to an elder.
