How To Say "Firefly" in Tagalog

I can still remember that time when I was walking towards home on a very dark and cold evening.  I was pushing our front gate wide open when I noticed a lot of glowing light that filled up the jackfruit tree in our backyard.  The tree almost looked like a Christmas tree with glowing and flickering yellow light against a pitch dark background.  In today's lesson, we are going to learn about a few fun facts about fireflies as well as learn how to say Firefly using the Tagalog language translation.
