Dear Sisters and Benefactors,
The year 2020 has been a real challenge for a lot of us. But the girls and staff of Margaretha Home for the Blind encourage us to look at the good things, as they serenade us with some Filipino Christmas Carols.
This video is a little lengthy, but we hope, that you will bear to watch it. It is our simple way to share Christmas with you and your family. Merry Christmas.
You can also watch this or share it with your family and friends through FB or YouTube.

#1 CHRISTMAS WON’T BE THE SAME WITHOUT YOU by Pauline
The year 2020 brought to us fear, worry, sickness and a virus that does not choose, whoever we are - not only here in our country, but all over the world. Many recovered, but many lost their lives - in fact, they are our loved ones and friends. That is, why many say: “Christmas won’t be the same without you”. But we can still keep them in our hearts this Christmas and always.
#2 ILANG TULOG PA (HOW MANY MORE SLEEPS) by Sharon
In spite of the trials and challenges that came to us due to the pandemic, unemployment and worries, we can all still be excited about the coming Christmas. This is not about the material things that we give to one another, but what is most important now is: to let our loved ones feel our love for them and that we will be together during this Christmas. How many more sleeps, then it is Christmas,
#3 TULOY NA TULOY PA RIN ANG PASKO (CHRISTMAS WILL CONTINUE ON) by Lyn
Just what we said before, the pandemic we experience now changes our life drastically. But we should not forget the true meaning of Christmas: that Jesus loves us. With all the hardships, sickness and trials we can say: we will continue to have Christmas.
#4 WHEN I HEAR THOSE JINGLE BELLS by Trisha
Christmas songs, Christmas balls, Christmas trees are all reminders that Christmas is coming soon. Even the wind is getting cooler now. Our celebration will be very different now, but we have to remember, that Christmas is a season of love and cheer. It is a wonderful and a musical time of the year, especially for children, but the adults are not exempted. May we choose to count our blessings instead of our pains and fears, because Jesus loves us, all of us.
Loving Merry Christmas to you all,
