A SELECTION OF THE BEST SPANISH CHRISTMAS MUSIC
Merry Christmas! Don’t you love to celebrate it singing carols? Last year I shared with you the Catalan Christmas songs I grew up with, and many of you liked it. So I thought that there wouldn’t be a better subject for today’s post than talking about traditional Spanish Christmas songs, too. And as I’m writing it, I realize how different Catalan and Spanish traditions are. The Christmas carols sung in Spain are rhythmic, fun and almost a bit noisy. Children love to sing them while playing kids instruments such as noisemakers, hand drums, tambourines… and scratching anisette bottles with metal spoons. Very festive and family-oriented.
In the other hand, the words are somehow childish and mostly speak about nativity scenes or shepherds and countryside life scenes. They also tend to include a bit surrealistic verses that don’t make much sense. But this naivete is part of their charm. Are you curious to hear some of the most popular? Keep reading and Merry Christmas!
