The family has always been the center of festivities during the Christmas season. This year, even an affordable house and lot offer like Lumina Homes would not amount to the earnest plea of every Filipino family: a healthy and safe Christmas and New Year ahead.


Christmas 2020: Bida ang Pamilya sa Paskong Lumina



The pandemic changed the lives of many Filipinos. Now, safe spaces are no longer just about security, but a literal safe space to breathe and move around. This takes a toll on the many Filipino families who do not have the privilege to own safe space in the middle of a health crisis. Those who had been living in rented apartments or congested communities of informal settlers found themselves homeless and in a desperate attempt to go back to their provinces to seek refuge.


The pandemic surely made a lot of Filipinos realize that an affordable house and lot is a good investment for a stable and secure future, especially in times where the only place you can stay is in your home. The usual dilemma, “Should I rent or buy a house and lot?” was suddenly resolved. The sources of livelihood became scarce, and adapting to the new normal has been challenging, yet the Filipino spirit keeps us going. The Filipino family persevered to live despite everything.


What kept the Filipino family going and endure everything even during a different Christmas season? That would be the ties they get to keep despite the imposed distance from the world.


Families learned to soothe each other’s anxiety over the uncertainty of the future and settled internal conflicts to be at peace with each other. People learned to confront problems head-on and resolve them instead of avoiding them, which has been keeping families apart in many circumstances. When we lost access to the outside world, we learned the value of what we have within our homes and survive with the people we cherish most.


At the end of the day, all these are what make Christmas worth celebrating, right? It is still the Christmas season, and the spirit lives on.

Though we dream of a better new year ahead, we cannot deny that we also want to keep the good relationships we nurtured within our homes. How? Let’s keep our safe spaces now as our go-to place to build memories with our loved ones in the future. Lumina Homes can help you make that Christmas wish come true.


In times that the home is the safest place to stay, may you find comfort and security with your family despite the pandemic. And if you plan to spend your special moments and build memories in an affordable house and lot that your family will cherish, you can always ask Lumina Homes to help you move forward and create possibilities.
