Truly it's the Philippines who has the longest celebration of Christmas in the world! One of the evidence is the recent Giant Christmas Tree lighting at Araneta Center as early as November!

To keep the joy flowing, Coca Cola invited a lot of celebrity not just from ABS-CBN but also from the Kapuso Channel, GMA-7 as well.

Present in the said event are the main endorser of Coca Cola in the Philippines, Enchong Dee and Kim Chui.

From ABS-CBN, present are the following Pinoy Big Brother Teen Housemates: James Reid, Devon Seron, Ryan Bang, Jenny Sol, Bret Jackson, Fritzie Bercede, Tricia Santos, and Ivan Dorschner. I also spotted Matt Evans, Robi Domingo and Empress Shuck in the said event.
