MANILA- Like in previous years, President Rodrigo Duterte will spend Christmas with his family in his hometown Davao City.

Duterte will have a “simple” holiday celebration with his loved ones, his spokesman Salvador Panelo said Tuesday. 

“The President, as usual, will be spending his Christmas with his family, with his grandchildren, and children in his house in Davao City,” Panelo said.

“His wish for the Filipinos is to have comfortable lives,” he added.

Duterte is known to hold an annual gift-giving every Christmas Day in Davao City.
