For Nadine Lustre who has been busy all year round with a TV show, endorsements, and guest appearances, the holidays are perfect for some downtime with her loved ones. “Buong year kasi, parang I was focused on what I do, my work, and all that,” she told ABS-CBN Lifestyle at the ABS-CBN Station ID shoot. “Kapag Christmas kasi, everyone gathers tapos ayun na, nagse-celebrate, get-together.”
Her best Christmas memory dates back to her younger years when her family was complete. “We would go to my tita’s house on December 24 and then come December 25, we would go naman to my lola’s house. She was still alive then,” she opened up, saying it still fills her with a sense of nostalgia to this day. “Ngayon kasi, everyone’s abroad and my lola’s gone na. Hindi na namin nagagawa yung ganun, but it was really nice kasi it was a simple celebration before. Now, it’s completely different.”
While it’s all about family, Nadine stressed Christmas is also the season of giving. “It’s a time to give to other people din—kahit mga hindi mo kamag-anak,” she said. The actress went to orphanages and hung out with less privileged kids in the past years but she wants to change it up this time. “Ngayon naman, parang gusto ko puntahan yung sa mga animal shelter,” she shared.
