Undoubtedly, Christmas is every Filipino’s favorite holiday. Hence, “It’s the most wonderful time of the year!”. Because of this, it isn’t a surprise that we celebrate the longest Christmas season compared to any other nation in the world.
Sometimes within the year, there are moments when we would like to fast-track to Christmas since it is the only time when we get to eat our favorite puto bumbong after Simbang Gabi. Also, this is the only time for most Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) to go back home and be with their family.
To help you relive the Christmas spirit and vibes anytime of the year, here is our Filipino Christmas playlist specially made for you guys:
“And I just want to know that I just want to go away with you.”
From one of this country’s most notable Indie singers, this magical and chill vibes song will transport you to the start of September (the start of the Filipino Christmas season) while reminiscing about your loved ones.
“Bilhan mo na siya ng bibingka, dahil sya na ang aking tadhana”
Christmas is about love, isn’t it? This song agrees to that. This chill tune will definitely make you fall in love with it every single time.
