Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas, everyone!


Here is my favorite Filipino Christmas song. It is popularly called "Ang Pasko ay sumapit" but apparently the full name is Maligayang Pasko at Manigong Bagong Taon (Ang Pasko ay Sumapit).

The Philippine Madrigal Singers perform "Ang Pasko ay Sumapit"

This song was originally written in Cebuano by Vicente D. Rubi and Mariano Vestil in 1933 as Kasadya ning Táknaa (in English, How Blissful is this Season). In the 1950s, National Artist Levi Celerio wrote the Tagalog lyrics which most Filipinos are familiar with.
