HOLIDAY TOUR: IT’S ALL ABOUT THE MUSIC (enter to win a set of Tiffany glasses)

For me, Christmas is all about the music.

Silent Night
Little Drummer Boy
Do You Hear What I Hear
Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer

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.

Dame La Mano Paloma
Si No Me Dan De Beber Lloro
Niño Jesus
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!

Feliz Navidad is always a favorite for me. Singing along out loud while carols are playing in the stores is another part of the holiday season that I love.

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." .

My favorite -- Si no me dan de beber

Maria, this was a wonderful piece. Thanks for sharing the ways you celebrate Christmas. Christmas is definitely about music. Thanks for sharing.

What a great idea!! Thanks Maria! I can't wait to get home tonight and listen. I'm at a crowded college pub right now waiting to read a story on their radio station. I think they'd toss me out if I interrupted ESPN. LOL.

Oh my gosh, Maria, you sure brought me back in time! I LOVE "Si No Me Dan De Beber Lloro"... It sure brings back happy memories of Christmas parties from my childhood.
