    Hi, could anyone let me know how to say
    "Merry Christmas" and "Happy New Year!" in tagalog.

    Are there any other common christmas greeting phrases in the Philippines.

    I found:

    Maligayang Pasko! - Merry Christmas!
    Masaganang Bagong Taon! - Happy New Year!

    But you should have it proofed by a native speaker of Tagalog. ;)

    Both are correct but for Happy New Year, it is more common to hear Manigong Bagong Taon. Both are synonymous.

    In Ilonggo, my native language:

    Merry Christmas - Malipayon nga Pascua
    Happy New Year - Mahamungayaon nga Bag-ong Tuig
