    CHRISTMAS in the PHILIPPINES

    HI to all and MERRI CHRISTMAS..i am so INTO CHRISTMAS THIS YEAR... i do not know if there are lots of FIlipino memebers for this site...i would love to share Chistmas languages from my native country. Below is a simple dictionary of the terms we used here

    Merry christmas - Maligayang pasko or Malipayong pasko
    Gift - regalo or pinaskuhan
    Caroling - DAYGON
    Christmas Eve dinner - NOCHE BUENA
    EVE MASS - MISA DE GALLO
    Excanging of gifts - kris kringle
    SANTA CLAUS - we call it santa claus still
    Christmas star decor - PAROL
    sacred family in a manger - BELEN

    cant believe it folks its already 97 days before the big holiday and counting...time flies indeed!!!!

    I had a Filipino penpal when I was in high school. She sent me a pretty Christmas card with palm trees on it.

    "Hail him who saves you by his grace,
    and crown him Lord of all."

    I regret to say that I became too busy to write letters on a regular basis and I lost touch with her.

    It would be really great if you could post pictures if you have a camera and know how to load pictures onto a computer. I love photos!
