For me, Christmas is all about the music.

But, I am a product of two cultures and two countries. And come Christmas, I want the best of both worlds – snow and Jibarro Christmas music.

Si No Me Dan De Beber Lloro
Feliz Navidad by Jose Feliciano
One year my Tio Toñito –the best uncle in Ponce and all the world!– gave me eight CDs that he burned with all the Jibaro music he could find. It is the best present ever.
I would like to share with you some of my favorite Spanish Christmas songs. Feel free to blast them; I always do. And, if you happen to wake the neighbors, invite them over for a drink and some holiday cheer.
From my home to yours, Happy Navidad and Merry Año Nuevo!

A few years ago, I got to spend a week in PR near Christmas time and I purchased a bunch of parranda music. I love it and enjoy listening to it as well.
A special one for me "Brindo del Boemio." .
