#JoseMariChan trends as Pinoys welcome Christmas season

Known for having the longest and grandest celebration of Christmas in the world, Filipinos took to social media to welcome the start of the Christmas season in the Philippines on Friday, September 1.

As Christmas season in the Philippines starts from September until January, Filipinos celebrated the first day of the festive season tweeting about singer and composer Jose Mari Chan, also known as the “King of Christmas Carols”.

Chan is behind the iconic carols “Christmas in our Hearts” and “A Perfect Christmas”, staple Christmas songs played in every mall, radio, and television station in the Philippines.

In a previous interview, Chan said he feels honored and blessed to spread the Christmas spirit across different generations of Filipinos.

I feel proud, and lucky. That I have that one song or two songs at least that will be remembered long after I’m gone,” he said.
