Above all these, the true Paskong Pinoy speaks of love no matter the distance.
“Da Best ang Pasko ng Pilipino” showcases how Filipinos around the world celebrate Christmas, whether they are with their family or not. Families who were separated by miles and oceans were able to get connected through various means of communications and were shown in split screens.
