Inside: Spanish Christmas songs for kids, on YouTube.

Who doesn’t love Christmas music? Whether you’re the kind who starts listening once falls hits, or prefers to wait until advent season has officially started, your kids are sure to love the collection of Spanish Christmas songs here.

I’m the turn-on-the-Navidad-playlist-in-November type, because I want to soak up all the happy memories that come with the music. When it comes to our bilingual, bicultural family, I love the Christmas spans our two cultures (between the U.S. and Peru).

We all know the power of an old song to trigger vivid memories that seem to transport us back in time and space… The songs we love become woven into a neural tapestry entwined with the people, seasons, and locations throughout our lifespan. – Psychology Today

Some of the songs my husband sang in Spanish as a kid, I was singing in English all those years ago. Our kids know both! This list is a mix of Spanish-English songs, and some I only learned after learning Spanish.
