John Lloyd Cruz Is Excited For Christmas PartiesIf there's one thing that John Lloyd Cruz is excited about with Christmas, it's the number of parties he will attend with his friends and family.
As early as now, he has already started attending parties arranged by his groups of friends. He's close to Zanjoe Marudo and Vhong Navarro, so they usually meet every Christmas.
They usually have a potluck dinner. With his family, Lloydie had exchange gifts. He has a very typical family. They have Noche Buena, and they are required to be there for the family.
In between Christmas and New Year though, he has the time to meet his friends. He also has a party to attend with his "Home Sweet Home" family.
Lloydie joked that back when he has four shows with the network, he has four Christmas parties to attend. One can only imagine the money he has to spend on gifts.
Whenever he thinks of Christmas, he remembers the kids because he believes the season is really for them. Their faces light up whenever they receive gifts.
Because he has such a busy schedule, he usually hires a personal shopper. However, Lloydie said he tries as much as possible to make the gifts personal. He makes it a point to sign the card personally, so it will really be special to the one who will receive it.
Giving gifts is also in the spirit of Thanksgiving because he is thankful for all the blessings that he received during the year. Even though he has yet to sign the contract with ABS-CBN, he is still thankful for all the blessings.
Lloydie doesn't want anything "material" anymore for Christmas. He wishes for four things: health, wisdom, drive and passion.
He wants his family to be healthy. He can have all the money in the world pero without health, where will he be?
In terms of his career, he wants to continue in the business. He wants to be inspired and to give more. "Sana hindi maubusan yung mga bagay na magpapa-inspire sa ‘kin."
