5. “Noche Buena” by Marco Sison

6. “Mano Po, Ninong” by Pilita Corrales

Who could forget to honor their godparents during Christmas? “Mano Po” is a Filipino tradition of bowing to the hands of the elderly as a sign of respect. In return, godparents will answer their godchildren with a gift — that’s just how it works.

7. “Wish Ko Sa Pasko” by Sexbomb Girls

Who doesn’t have a wish this Christmas? Well, of course, we all do. This song is for those who are madly waiting for the love of their life to actually have the guts to initiate courtship.

8. “Pasko Na Sinta Ko” by Gary Valenciano

9. “Miss Kita Kung Christmas” by Sharon Cuneta version

“Miss Kita Kung Christmas” is for romantically missing someone who actually has someone else. This became popular because the lyrics are relatable enough to reignite a person’s feelings for his/her love.

10. “Sana Ngayong Pasko” by Ariel Rivera

“Kahit wala ka na, nangangarap at umaasa pa rin ako,” this sounds as hopeless romantic as it can be, but many can relate. In a world full of pokmarus, there will be one who’s braver to wait. Although waiting is one of the most difficult parts in a relationship, this Filipino romantic song ideally shows persistence -wishing to rekindle the long-lost affection to his loved ones during Christmas time.
