Over a month before Christmas 2010, PRworks decided to do something different. As our way of spreading Christmas cheers, we are posting Cebuano Christmas songs from Youtube.
We also came up with our Christmas lists that we are sharing with our readers. Please feel free to participate in our poll of what you agree regarding our choices. We are also encouraging you to also write down your own lists below. Who knows? Santa might be surfing the Net ….
Our list of Christmas songs (scroll down to our second poll), meanwhile, starts with the traditional classics like “Silent Night” and “O Holy Night.” Instead of songs with references to snow and how they celebrate Christmas in the West, we included our very own “Kasadya Ning Takna-a.”
Like Michael Buble in “Grown-Up Christmas List,” we wished for toys when we were kids. But now, as adults we want to see world peace. We are now much like Stevie Wonder wishing for a Christmas free of war and hunger in his “Someday at Christmas” or Sammy Davis Jr. wishing good holiday tidings to all regardless of location, customs, or language. This is because we now see reality with its all its warts like John Lennon and Yoko Ono who presented us the horrors of war amidst the holiday season in “Happy Xmas (War is Over) or Andy Williams pleading for peace during the 1962 Cuban missile crisis in his “Do You Hear What I Hear.” And like Bono and U2 in their song “Peace on Earch,” we ask why peace still eludes us.
