Tagalog Christmas Words, Phrases and Greetings

It’s hard to find a Tagalog greeting card for Filipino friends this holiday season, so I’ve been encouraging people to simply hand-write a Christmas greeting on holiday cards and gifts for Filipino friends. I even made a page with a couple of Tagalog greetings specifically for use during the Christmas season: http://tinyurl.com/TagGreet

If you need to say “Merry Christmas” in Tagalog, I’ve got that covered here:  ‘Merry Christmas’ in Tagalog

While personally handing over a gift to a Filipino friend, wouldn’t it be great to say a few simple Tagalog words and phrases as well? Here are some Tagalog words and phrases related to gifts.

A few important Tagalog words to know off the top of your head: ‘Christmas’ is Pasko. ‘Christmas gift’ is pamasko.  The Tagalog translation for ‘Christmas Eve’ is Bisperas ng Pasko, and the dinner feast that Filipinos celebrate on Christmas Eve is Noche Buena.

Maligayang Pasko!
