Even before the videos were aired, ABS-CBN’s hashtag #ThankYouForTheLove and GMA-7’s #MaGMAhalanTayoNgayongPasko went trending on Twitter here in the Philippines and worldwide. Fans of both stations have different opinions on each station ID, but we at TN think that both of them are great, especially in reminding us the true meaning of Christmas. 🙂
