Experience the most joyful celebrations with the Jollibee Virtual Party

Share the most joyful celebrations with family and friends in a fun, safe way, with the new Jollibee Virtual Party

Celebrating with family or friends is always a special and meaningful event for Filipinos. Every parent wants to give their kids only the best and most memorable birthday party while friends and family members put in extra effort in preparing for a joyful Christmas celebration.  Whatever the occasion, Pinoys truly cherish such special occasions where they bond over great food with people special to them. 

However, with the current health situation, most parties have been limited to one’s household with the usual online gathering of family and friends.  Good thing Jollibee now enables everyone to still give the most joyful party experience with the launch of the Jollibee Virtual Party, a complete and first-of-its-kind fully online celebration package.

The Spirit of Sharing Love on Christmas through Food Continues with Lemon Grass


Enjoy Christmas Noche Buena with your loved ones with Lemon Grass meals 

Food is memories. One bite of ensaymada from a favorite bakery brings back memories of after-school meriendas; a sniff of a favorite chocolate drink and suddenly one is a child again, rejoicing at home because classes have been cancelled. 

Food is love. For Filipinos, sharing food has always been part of the culture and an expression of care and love. Neighbors exchanging home-cooked meals during fiestas, potluck lunches in the office, reunions filled with all sorts of dishes … these reflect how Filipinos bond through food. Christmas — both the noche buena feast and the family gathering on Christmas day itself — is everyone’s most awaited time to gather at the dinner table and share not just our favorite meals but gifts, stories and love most of all with those we hold dear. 

But will Christmas this year be the same? With the pandemic-caused travel and crowd restrictions continuing to restrict families and friends from gathering together and the sustained spread of the virus dampening the supposedly merriest season of all, will we be celebrating the holidays like before? Or has Christmas been stolen by the Grinch that is COVID-19?
