José Feliciano had a huge hit in North America and throughout the Spanish-speaking world with his song "Feliz Navidad", which he penned in 1970. It has become one of the 25 most played Christmas songs across the world and features simple lyrics in both Spanish and English.
Considering that the majority of the world's Latino population is Catholic, Christmas is a highly celebrated holiday. Although no other Spanish-language Christmas song has seen the level of worldwide success that "Feliz Navidad" enjoys, there are many other Latin Christmas songs to choose from.
This playlist features a sampling of Christmas songs native to Latino culture as well as translated-from-English Christmas songs.
