As Christmas day draws near, PUSH.com.ph asked celebrities how and where they plan to spend the yuletide season.
The newest Kapamilya artist shared that he and his family are flying to Sydney, Australia.
“We’re all flying to Sydney so (we’re) leaving on the 22nd. Spend time with family and then come home,” Ogie said, pertaining to wife Regine Velasquez and son Nate. Living in Sydney are his two daughters Leila and Sarah with their mother Michelle Van Eimeren and her husband. Daughter Leila will be moving to the Philippines next year.
For Liza, she and her family are just staying home for Christmas for an intimate celebration.
“We usually celebrate Christmas at home all the time because we’re very traditional and we believe that it should be a family get-together and stuff so it should be very intimate and you know, peaceful at our house lang. At least, the memories are created inside our household,” she said.
According to the It’s Showtime Hashtags member, he will be spending time with his family like his father and his grandmother as they will be visiting him in the Philippines from Hong Kong. “Pupunta sila dito just to spend time, family bonding lang and just to catch up with everything that’s going on.”
Singer Bugoy shared that he would have gone to the United States for Christmas but he changed his mind. He said that he might go to El Nido in Palawan instead.
“Baka dito na lang and baka pumunta na lang ako ng El Nido, Palawan with my friends and then with my family. Very simple. Actually, ‘yung unang plan ko sana sa US, and ‘yung second plan ko sana, I want to try na home alone lang and then watch movie lang then third kong plan is ‘yung pumunta ng El Nido so I decided, baka ‘yung pangatlong plan ko na lang.”
Singer Liezel said that she might come home to Puerto Galera where her relatives are. “And then maybe sa New Year, sila naman ‘yung dito sa Manila. So parang vice versa, ‘yun ‘yung magiging set-up namin ngayon since medyo matagal din yata akong hindi nakakauwi so this time, at least sama sama kami ng family ko.”
“Just the usual tradition with my family. Every Christmas, we go to my Tita’s house. The whole family talaga tapos wala, riot lang every Christmas.”
Denise said they never leave the country during Christmas time and they opt to celebrate it simply.
“We always… We go to Mass, we have dinner and then, just stay together. Sobrang simple. We never leave the country, we always just have Noche Buena.”
