Disney UK Christmas Ad Shares The Philippines to the World

The Disney UK Christmas ad starts with a little girl waiting for the arrival of a father figure and greeting him through pagmamano – or commonly termed “bless”. The dad then hands over a Mickey Mouse toy to the girl to her delight. Noticeable in the scene are the colorful parols or the Philippine lanterns decorated in the families barrio/ town.

The scene then cuts to the little girl now a Lola spending quality time with her granddaughter by making small Parols.

The Lola has left her little town in the Philippines and is living in the UK.
The story then reaches its climax with the Lola staring at her old Mickey Mouse toy that now has a missing ear drops it on the floor a symbolism of how she misses her home- The Philippines. 

Her granddaughter upon returning home saw the Mickey Mouse toy on the floor with the ear detached to it. She knew right there and then that her Lola misses her life and the Christmas traditions when she was still young and living in the Philippines.
