It’s only been weeks since the ber months started but GMA Pinoy TV is already thinking of bringing Christmas treats to Filipinos in the US via “Kapusong Pinoy: Paskuhan At Kantawanan Sa Anaheim.”
The show is headed by Ai Ai delas Alas, Christian Bautista, Julie Anne San Jose, Donita Nose and Super Tekla, and Marian Rivera-Dantes.
At a recent press conference, the stars shared their thoughts on the merriest season of all.
“Christmas in the Philippines is all about being with family, friends, loved ones,” Christian said. “It’s being celebrated with abundant food and laughter but the most important thing is what’s in the heart of the Filipinos at this time of the year.”
He explained that despite having misunderstandings and problems at times, Pinoys see to it that they gather to honor the spirit of Christmas.
“And that’s what we want to bring abroad – the spirit of togetherness no matter what happens,” he noted.
Julie believes receiving gifts at Christmas time is mere bonus being with people you love.
“Catholics look forward to Christmas as it is the birth of Jesus. We’re all thankfully and happy on that day,” Marian added.
Donita Nose and Super Tekla acknowledged it’s never easy to be away from loved ones, especially during the holidays. They pointed out that laughter alleviates the longing and sort of brings a piece of home to wherever the Filipinos are overseas.
As GMA Pinoy TV takes pride of Filipino talents all over the world, six performers who are already based in the US will get to share the spotlight with the Kapuso artists: Erwin Andaya, Sharon Rose Orosco, The Dancing Moms of LA, Clarishe Enaje, Haydee Angeline, and Michael Zuñiga.
“Kapusong Pinoy: Paskuhan At Kantawanan Sa Anaheim” is on Oct. 7 at The Grove of Anaheim in Los Angeles, California.
