As seen in her most recent YouTube vlog, Kim Chiu explained why she chose red and white as the color motif for her 12-foot tall Christmas tree this pandemic-plagued year 2020.
“It is a bit different this year dahil siyempre, pandemic, so hindi muna ako bumili ng mga Christmas decors and i-recycle ko na lang ‘yung mga Christmas decors ko through the years. Pagtatagpi-tagpiin ko sila, pagsasama-samahin ko sila. So let’s see kung ano ‘yung magiging itsura niya,” Chiu explained.
“The motif is color red and color white. White or silver. Because red symbolizes happiness and white or silver symbolizes hope and purity,” added the Kapamilya actress, who used lights and old ornaments such as sparkly red, white and silver leaves, flowers, candy canes.
Noting that Christmas is “really for the kids and the kids at heart,” the “Love Thy Woman” lead actress further said: “We are looking forward to a brighter and better 2021 for all of us.”
Furthermore, in a separate interview, Chiu bared that unlike her family’s pre-pandemic Christmas traditions, Chiu will refrain from throwing parties this coming Yuletide season.
“Most important talaga is really [the] family with you, sa kainan. And lagay ka lang ng Christmas tree, maliit o malaki, as long as may Christmas tree diyan sa side alam mo Pasko na,” she further added.
Chiu, along with Toni Gonzaga, Robi Domingo, Bianca Gonzalez, Maymay Entrata, Edward Barber, Enchong Dee, Richard Juan, and Melai Cantiveros, is tapped to do hosting duties in the upcoming new season of ABS-CBN’s “Pinoy Big Brother” Connect.
