Christmas is a time for reunions and gathering with loved ones. For Filipinos, this is especially meaningful as OFWs and those living abroad get to come home and enjoy the unique Pinoy festivities with their friends and family. Even if most OFWs may not be able to make it back this year, there are still so many ways they can send their love home and make meaningful moments even from miles away.
