The Philippines has been grabbing the headlines for a variety of reasons.
President Rodrigo Duterte’s pro-drug war and anti-US rhethoric has resulted in anger and violence, but as Christmas draws near, many Filipinos look forward to a season of celebration and reaffirmation of their faith in God and family in trying times.
Major broadcaster ABS-CBN reveals the inspiration behind their annual “Christmas Station ID”:
(ABS-CBN) – Nothing is impossible in life as long as we remain as one family in love and in faith.
We Filipinos are known for how deeply we cherish our family and our faith in God.
Let's celebrate one family today! #IsangPamilyaTayo

Our faith in God is our stronghold and armor against any adversity.
This is why despite all the trials we encounter, we remain hopeful and strong.
This Christmas, we are shining the spotlight on individuals, communities and organizations that are examples of determination to succeed and of commitment to improve their lives and the lives of others no matter what the difficulties are.
