How to say Merry Christmas and other Holiday Greetings in Cebuano

The Philippines is known to celebrate Christmas season the longest in the entire world.  As early as the month of September, malls begin to play Christmas music and start displaying colorful Christmas decorations.  The climax of the season will be Christmas Eve when families and friends gather together to share the Christmas feast, exchange gifts and together give thanks for the blessings they enjoyed the entire year.  And then preparation for New Year's Day begins.  If you happen to be invited to a Filipino Christmas Party in Cebu be ready to say the following greetings:

Merry Christmas
Malipayong Pasko

Happy New Year
Malipayong Bag-ong Tuig

A Prosperous New Year to all!
Mabungahong bag-ong tuig sa tanan.

Try to do a little research as to what to expect in a Christmas Party and if you can join in the activities, it would be cool.  Prepare a piece you can sing in a videoke and take part in the games.  Give token cash to kids, and enjoy the meal before you.  (worry of indigestion the following day!)

Malipayong Pasko ug mabungahong bag-ong tuig akong mga higala!!! Salamat sa tanan. Magkita ta sa 2012. Ayu-ayo!
