Mamaland is the first-ever Virtual Mommy and Baby..
Disney’s latest Christmas ad surely warms the heart with its nostalgic story that centers the Filipino culture.
In its Christmas ad this year, Disney UK showcased the undying Filipino Christmas tradition of making parols and the bond it creates for the family even generations apart.
Disney UK’s heartwarming story, From Our Family to Yours, follows a Lola and her granddaughter. The three-minute ad begins in 1940 Philippines, when the lola, as a child, received a stuffed Mickey Mouse for Christmas.
Fast forward 65 years later, the child becomes a grandmother and gifts her apo both the worn stuffed toy and the ever-alive Filipino tradition of making and decorating home with star lanterns.
Through time, the granddaughter’s love for the tradition began to fade away. But the bond that the tradition made between the generations of family members compels the granddaughter to prepare a Christmas surprise that takes her lola to childhood.
The ad, which is part of Disney’s campaign to support the Make-A-Wish Foundation, surely tugs at everyone’s heartstrings, Filipino or not.
