September is an important month to Filipinos as it opens the “-BER months” — the last four months of the year culminating to the festivity of the Christmas season. TV5 brings the -BER months to a whole new level as it kicks off the longest Christmas celebration on Philippine television.
The way we dedicate our time and efforts to celebrate the -BER months is recognized as the world’s longest Christmas season, for which Filipinos are most known. By tradition, Christmas carols will be heard on the radio and in shopping malls at this time, not to mention the myriad of colors that will soon light up the streets everywhere. Indeed, as any amused foreigner or OFW pining for home will say, iba ang Pasko sa Pinas.
The pandemic may have changed the way we celebrate the holidays, but the Pinoy Christmas spirit cannot be locked down. TV5 enjoins all Kapatid viewers to celebrate this Christmas journey despite all the challenges we face together.
TV5 recognizes that Christmas cannot be taken away from the Filipinos. The fun and happiness we look forward to this Yuletide season will find its home in the Kapatid Network’s longest and biggest celebration – dahil Ikaw, Ako, Tayo, atin ang Pasko! Atin Ang Paskong Ito, Kapatid! Following the uniquely Pinoy tradition, on TV5, Christmas begins on the very first day of the very first BER-month.
At the very start of the month, TV5 has launched the longest Christmas celebration that is set to spark the holiday spirit and light up hope for a brighter tomorrow. Everyone was invited to join — whether via TV or online — as the festivities were kicked off via Frontline Pilipinas.
Throughout this season of giving, TV5 brings joy to viewers all over the country. Stay tuned and be part of the network’s grandest and merriest Yuletide celebration ever! In fact, it might just be not only the longest network Christmas campaign in Philippine history, but even the world! As the network’s campaign proves to tell the world: iba ang Paskong Pinoy. Iba sa 5!
