Christmas Around the World . . . My Way . . .


I’ve always been fascinated how others celebrate Christmas and am compelled to share with you my rendition in a variety of ways, so whether we say ¡Feliz Navidad, Buone Feste, Chúc mừng ngày lễ, Joyeux Noël, Frohe Weihnachten, Buon Natale, and so on, please join me in singing The Twelve Days of Christmas a la Mexicano

En el duodécimo día de Navidad soñé

On the twelfth day of Christmas I dreamt of

Doce medias de la Navidad – 12 Christmas stockings

Once galletas de Navidad – 11 Christmas cookies

Diez plantas de poinsettia – 10 Poinsettia plants

Nueve cactus de Navidad – 9 Christmas Cactus

Ocho tazas de chocolate caliente mexicano – 8 cups Mexican hot chocolate

Siete sopapillas dulce – 7 sweet sopapillas

Seis tamales deliciosos – 6 yummy tamales

Cinco piñatas de Navidad – 5 Christmas piñatas

Cuatro ovejas y sus pastores – 4 sheep and their shepherds

Tres hombres sabios siguientes allá estrella – 3 wise men and a star

Dos ángeles cantando – 2 angels singing 

Un Niño Jesús nos trae la alegría – 1 Baby Jesus bringing us joy




On the 11th Day of Christmas . . .


There were three wise men  . . .


Atop their camels they sat

following yonder star

hearing the new born King

lay in a manager beyond fields afar.

They traversed over moor and mountain

bringing gifts to honor His birth

bearing gold, frankincense, and myrrh.

On the 8th Day of Christmas . . .


Santa gave to me . . . 8 lacy snow flakes

Like a whisper floating through the air

Crystal-like – transparent

Twinkling – falling softly to the earth

Blanketing the ground snowy white

Their beauty fragile

See me now for I’ll soon be gone

Like an angel they flutter as they fly

A gentle kiss on the tip of my nose 

And, soon we, you and I, will fall to the ground and surround ourselves with fallen snowflakes making angel wings; our laughter like a tinkling bell – ahhh the beauty of the season

¡Feliz Navidad


On the Seventh Day of Christmas . . .


Santa gave to me – Seven Christmas wishes

I wish for peace for all nations, that we may live in harmony

I wish for the sounds of a small child’s laughter,

genuine and gay, to be heard by all

I wish for all to have a love of animals, as they bring joy to so many

I wish for a world free of pestilence in all seasons

I wish for no one to ever go hungry, in a world of plenty

I wish for the homeless, to at least 

have a warm and sunny sky overhead

I wish for the joy of the Christmas season to fill all our hearts with love

On the Third Day of Christmas . . .


Could it be sugar plums and candy canes?

Or sugar cookies or pumpkin pie,

no matter, for at Christmastime, tasty treats

fresh from the oven beckon all to try

Grandma’s goodies or Mom’s special sweets . . .

. . . be sure to visit again my friends – let’s see what goodies the 4th Day of Christmas brings!
