Today, the tradition of Noche Buena goes beyond Christmas food staples and has become a whole celebration of feasting together, with each family having their own unique spread of favorites alongside the usual hamon and queso de bola, reconnecting with family – especially those who are far away the rest of the year, and the much-awaited gift-giving. And despite almost two years of living with community restrictions, Filipinos continue to embrace this festive tradition, even if it is not always in person, thanks to widespread digitalization.
From Zoom reunions to sending the Christmas Aguinaldo through online banking and more, the present digital age presents an evolved version of Filipino Christmas celebrations while still being rooted in the same well-loved traditions.
While the easing of restrictions brings back opportunities to go out and celebrate together, going out to shop for Noche Buena preparations – from the food to the gifts – can also mean uncomfortably running into large crowds and holiday traffic. This is why GCash is making a familiar Christmas experience available in the app with The Christmas GLife Tiangge.
From November 22 to December 15, enjoy The Christmas GLife Tiangge through the Merry GCash category on GLife where merchants are offering exclusive holiday discounts and promos for you and your family to enjoy. Even OFWs can purchase gifts and Noche Buena items here and have them sent directly to their families back home. The discount code XMASTIANGGE applies automatically at checkout.
