Indeed, Christmas is best celebrated with family. It's also an opportunity to pose for photos that capture precious memories together, just like these celebrity families did. Check out the ones they shared on their social media accounts.
Marian Rivera and Dingdong Dantes shared the same photo, showing them with their children Zia and Ziggy posing in what looked like their living room. Marian wrote a simple greeting, using the language of her Spanish father, "Feliz Navidad," adding a thoughtful wish, "God bless everyone."
Dingdong, on the other hand, wrote a lenghty caption that brims with optimism and ends with this conclusion: "Marami na tayong pinagdaanang unos bilang isang bayan, at napatunayan natin noon pa man na di matitinag ang pagmamahal na mayroon tayo para sa ating mga pamilya at kapwa. Mananatili ang Pasko sa ating mga puso."

The couple also wrote an identical caption encapsulating God's gift of Christmas. Chesca elaborated on the reason for the season in another post by quoting a Biblical verse.

Rica Peralejo shared a few snaps showing how she and her husband Joseph Bonifacio tried to have a family portrait when their sons Philip and Manu were already sleepy.
She said in the caption, "Yung pag sobrang late nyo na narealize na wala pa pala kayong family Christmas photo tapos pinabalik mo isuot sa anak mo yung polo na tinanggal na nya habang naglalaro."
