Let Your Filipino Christmas Spirit Awaken As Early As Today

Let Your Filipino Christmas Spirit Awaken As Early As Today


Filipinos have been known for having the longest Christmas celebration ever. Soon as the “Ber” months arrive, you’ll surely here Christmas carols everywhere. Lights and decors will be up on sale and gift guides being passed on everywhere. It truly is the most wonderful time of the year. But you’ll never really feel the Filipino Christmas spirit until you get the best of it. And as November dawns, Ayala Malls is bringing us the grandest Christmas celebration anyone could ever have.

Christmas With A Cause

As the brainchild of Gary Valenciano and Bambi Mañosa, “Awit at Laro”, a Christmas album will be released to celebrate the season of giving in a way we know best. Featuring 10 reimagined traditional songs and 10 brand new songs about Filipino games, it’s the perfect gift to reintroduce time-old traditions to the younger generation. With this, artists who participated in the album will hold a concert that will tour 21 malls across the country.

Directed by Paolo Valenciano, the concert will feature Gary Valenciano, Steps Dance Studio and artists who participated in the album, including Kiana Valenciano, Jona, Gab V, Katrina Velarde, Darren Espanto, Lara Maigue, Yeng Constantino, Joey Ayala, RJ Dela Fuente, AC Bonifacio, Daryll Ong, and Janella Salvador.

The album aims to raise funds for UNICEF, the Tukod Foundation and the Shining Light Foundation. Similar to the album, Ayala Malls also launches “Laruang Aguinaldo”. From November 3 to December 16, participating toy stores and department stores will be selling toys that customers can purchase and donate for UNICEF and Kids 4 Kids.
