We put The Twelve Days of Christmas through the 2020 filter, and this is what we got.

This is it guys, we made it. It’s Christmas! The lead-up to this year’s holiday season could not have been worse, really, but surviving this year is reason alone to celebrate.
Our celebrations will look vastly different this year, and to commemorate this unique iteration to an age-old tradition in the Filipino household, we came up with Pasyal’s own version of the 12 Days of Christmas with the help of illustrator Sam Bumanlag.
You’ve probably had your fair share of pre-Christmas holiday Zoom parties with your officemates and friends, but the big family reunion is always a bit of a tizzy. Gird your loins, and pray for your internet connection.
For each person, obviously. We all deserve it.
Nothing like the warm hug of a rich slice of cake. Forget about the calories and just dig in. On the menu: Café Mary Grace’s Walnut Carrot Cake, Conti’s Mango Bravo, and Red Ribbon’s Brazo de Mercedes.
No matter how much you prepare, the hours leading up to a Christmas party are always frantic — last-minute gift wrapping, ironing outfits, the works. Don’t worry, you got this.
Time to bust out the karaoke mic. There’s no point in trying to resist the charms of your favorite titas, so sit back, relax, and enjoy the Christmas standards.
Speaking of Christmas standards, here’s another classic. But hey, at least you won’t be in smelling distance from them!
I hope you booked your food and gift deliveries in advance, because it’s surely going to be a busy day for couriers. If you need an extra hand for last-minute things, Ayala Malls’ A.N.A. service has you covered.
If you are willing and able, sometimes doing these deliveries to your family are faster do to do it yourself. Ayala Malls’ curbside pick-ups should make it even smoother.
Okay, getting a good group photo during in-person parties is already a challenge, but taking a virtual one may just take a few more tries. Smile and say Christmas!
Titas are famous for always wanting to feed you, even from far away. But like all moms, they will want those containers back. And they will not forget.
You know what they say: the more patterns, the merrier!
I don’t know about you, but that’s the amount of time I’ve accumulated just shopping for last-minute gifts this week. Need a bit more time? Check out Ayala Malls’ holiday mall hours here.
