Christmas Songs Post: Which Spanish Language Song is Better, “Donde Esta Santa Claus” or “Felice Navidad”?

Two American Spanish songs! For the children stuck in Spanish class in December who need something quick and fun they can sing.

The original, the classic, the one that brings back memories of elementary school:

And then the new (comparatively) one! “Donde Esta Santa Claus”

If you had to teach a bunch of 8 year olds some basic Spanish before letting them loose for winter break, which song would you play?

    • I think I might be the same. Sometimes I just want to shout it out with great joy, sometimes I want to bash the radio until it dies.

  1. My grandsons sing Feliz Navidad all the time. But they change the lyrics to, “Police stopped my car, police stopped my car, police stopped my car, they pulled me over outside the bar.” And so on. 😠
    My Venezuelan daughter in law thinks it’s hilarious.

    • HA! I love it! When I was a kid, we were all about the “Jingle Bells, Batman Smells” version.

  2. Ummm…I can enjoy Straight No Chaser but based on their accents here pretty sure none of those dudes speak Spanish. José Feliciano all the way. But if you want to mix it up, here are some ideas:

    Juanes singing “Mi burrito sabanero”

    A new version of “Hacia Belén va una burra” that’s my new favorite this week

    And this was my favorite for the last couple of weeks, Gloria!
