Christmas comes with sacrifice for June Mar Fajardo

Christmas in the Philippines is a time to spend with family.

As much as they can, people go home to be with their loved ones. For some people though, it's not as easy as it should be.

For people like June Mar Fajardo of the San Miguel Beermen, there are PBA games to win so usually, they still have practice during the holidays.

For June Mar Fajardo specifically, it's a lot harder because first, he's obviously based in Manila for his day job and second, most of his family, including both his parents, are based in Cebu.

"Nakakalungkot kaso may practice kasi kami," Fajardo said when asked about Christmas.

"Kailangan kong mag-practice, mag-sacrifice kasi ito yung trabaho. Ito yung bumubuhay sa amin. Pwede ko naman i-celebrate yung pasko pag-uwi ko," he added.

For a four-time league MVP, June Mar probably all the material things that he can ask for, not that he was the materialistic type in the first place.

So for the holidays, the Kraken only has one wish for him and his family.

"Wish ko lang sa Pasko, healthy kami lahat, lahat ng pamilya ko, mahal ko sa  buhay. Lahat tayo, wish ko healthy at Masaya tayo sa Pasko," he said. 

"Pinaka-magandang Christmas gift ay yung makasama parents ko, iyong kapatid ko, mga mahal ko sa bahay, iyon lang ang makakapagpasaya sa akin. Hindi ko kailangan ng material na bagay," Fajardo added.
