THEY say Christmas is best celebrated when home but for this American national, holidays can be enjoyed anywhere in the world for as long as you are with your loved ones.
Robert Johnson, 60, who grew up in Arizona, USA is spending his Christmas in Davao City with his Filipina wife Cyril Luarez-Johnson and her family.
“I totally feel at home here during the holidays. I have many friends and family here and always feel welcome and appreciated. Filipinos are the best hosts in the world,” the American real estate investor shared.
Robert has been coming to the Philippines for about 12 years and he learned to love the Filipino way of celebrating Christmas.
He said it’s always a pleasure to experience Christmas here because everyone gets in the spirit of the holiday season. He also loves the Filipino way of caroling and decorations which he described as “fun and blessed.”
“I totally feel at home here during the holidays. I have many friends and family here and always feel welcome and appreciated. Filipinos are the best hosts in the world,” he said.
