For the most part, Christmas celebrations these past two years had been totally different, as most of our traditions had to be altered to be conducive to the times. From waking up early to attend Simbang Gabi to seeing your loved ones during a family reunion, these festivities had to be toned down, or even held online, to keep up with the times.

Despite these challenges, our love for this festive season didn’t waver. If anything, it only made us appreciate the little things in life, and made us even closer with our loved ones despite these perceived challenges. And with the help of leading superapp Grab, our Christmas for the last couple of years did not feel incomplete.

But exactly how does Grab help us in making our holiday complete?  Is it through delivering gifts to our loved ones? Perhaps, helping us get the food we crave, to be served for Noche Buena or Christmas parties? 


As the Yuletide season is fast approaching, asked their readers about how Grab makes their Christmas extra special. 

An inspiration to work hard

The pandemic has made most of us feel down because of the uncertainty and fear it brings, which has made it harder to find the motivation to do anything. But for 32-year-old delivery rider Rex Dela Cruz, Grab has motivated him to continue working hard.

Rex shared that as a delivery boy himself, he knew the risks brought by the pandemic to riders like him. Yet, this didn’t discourage them (including himself) from still providing their best services for their customers, most especially during the Yuletide season. According to Rex, the resilience displayed by delivery riders is what makes this group of people among the modern-day heroes that serve as an inspiration to many people. And for Rex, being able to help people not only deliver what they need but to also help them spend and connect with their family is what makes his Christmas special and complete.

The same goes for Arriane Faye Barbera, who shared that no matter where you are, Grab is always there to the rescue for all the things she needs, even in times of emergencies. 

For her, Grab also guaranteed their safety as they don’t need to go out to run errands, order food, and do grocery shopping. Apart from that, Grab also makes her Christmas more complete because it provides all the services she needs without hassle, and helps her reach her loved ones by sending gifts, allowing her to build stronger relationships with her family.
