Latino Christmas songs for the season


Will Medina for CraftyChica.com

Happy Holidays! I’m looking forward to tamales and all the goodies – and music, of course! Here is my take on Latino Christmas songs that will spark your winter spirit. Sometimes holiday songs sound so much better in Spanish… just saying!

This collection ranges from contemporary favorites to fresh spins on the classics. Some aren’t even directly related to Christmas, but fit just as well. Regardless, all will light your spirit with emotion and happiness. From dancing to finding a quiet moment to reflect, you’ll find it all here.

I even made a Spotify playlist for you!

Melissa Galindo – Todo Lo Que Quiero Es A Ti

Check out Melissa’s take on the ever popular Mariah Carey hit! It will make your day!

Farolito by Natalia Lafourcade

Sometimes we don’t want to be perky and chipper for the season, this one is strong and sensitive, so beautiful to listen to.

Putumayo Presents Latin Christmas

I love Putumayo compilations, and this is a new one for this year. Putumayo Presents Latin Christmas features eleven tracks from artists. You can buy it on CD, or stream it from Amazon!

Are you feeling as festive as I am right now? We sure need it these days, right? This is the week when you want to clear all the gunk out of your head and just enjoy the season. Christmas music is an easy way to set the mood, not only for you but for your loved ones and friends. I be playing this playlist during Christmas Eve, and I hope you will too!

I really hope you enjoyed this month’s post and all the posts from this year. I hope you continue to discover new music with us in 2017! Have an amazing Christmas and a very happy New Year. See you in 2017!
