Song of the Week–Feliz Navidad

Last night I was getting my kids ready for bed and my 3yr old kept singing songs while jumping on the bed (figures) and somehow at some point one of us started singing “Feliz Navidad” (might have be, I really don’t remember! LOL!)  It is such a cute little song, and I love that the kids get to learn a little spanish, so here it is! Our “Song for the Week”!!

A little about Spanish pronunciation…whenever you see an E, it is pronounced “ay” like in the word “angel”…an A is always pronounced “ah” like the O in “olive”….an I is always pronounced “ee” like the E in “evil”… an O is always pronounced “oh” like in “over”…and a U is always pronounce “oo” like double O in the word “food”.

Feliz Navidad lyrics:

Feliz Navidad (pronounced <fay-LEES Nah-vee-DAHD>, which means “Merry Christmas in Spanish”)
Feliz Navidad
Feliz Navidad
Prospero Ano y Felicidad. (pronounced <pro-SPAY-ro AH and means “prosperous year and happiness” in Spanish)
Feliz Navidad
Feliz Navidad
Feliz Navidad
Prospero Ano y Felicidad.

I wanna wish you a Merry Christmas
I wanna wish you a Merry Christmas
I wanna wish you a Merry Christmas
From the bottom- of my heart.

Feliz Navidad
Feliz Navidad
Feliz Navidad
Prospero Ano y Felicidad.

Feliz Navidad
Feliz Navidad
Feliz Navidad
Prospero Ano y Felicidad.

I wanna wish you a Merry Christmas
I wanna wish you a Merry Christmas
I wanna wish you a Merry Christmas
From the bottom- of my heart. 

and here’s Jaci Velasquez singing the song:

  1. Thanks for the great idea of a weekly song! I’ve been singing, humming and loving this all week – as an added bonus, my four-month old seems to think it works brilliantly as a lullaby for nap time! Looking forward to next week’s song (and many more in future :D)
