Singing carols in Spanish can be one of the most funny way to raise your Spanish language. A collection of songs and carols Christmas songs is not only for Spanish students and teachers, but also for the leaders of choirs and musical performers. Spain (as well as Mexico, Argentina and Chile) is a Catholic country and religion plays in the lives of their residents a significant role. Here applies traditional holiday calendar, similar to the one in Italy, and so are also celebrating the feast of Navidad – Christmas.
In Spanish Christmas there is a lot of fun and a public celebration in the streets. This can be seen even after the Spanish Christmas songs, which are often sung to the rhythm of the rumba 🙂 Christmas in South America look completely different than in Europe. Imagine holidays among palm trees, no snow, snowmen and below zero temperatures. But there is a lot of fun, not encountered in Europe (unfortunately because the birth of Jesus should be a joyous celebration!).
