For the last few years, La Mesa Española, a social group for practicing Spanish in Houston, Texas, has collected to sing Spanish Christmas carols, known as villancicos de navidad. This used to be confusing for our Spanish practice group because the music usually differed from the printed lyrics we had available. Last year, I combed the web for music and lyrics, and I managed to build a set of matched pairs which we share here. We are always looking for more songs to add to our collection, and we appreciate any corrections that you can make to the lyrics (letras) presented here. For more information about La Mesa Española, feel free to call me, Lester Buck, at 713-665-2258, or .
And if you are in the Houston area, we hope to see you at Taco Milagro on a Monday before Christmas, for some Spanish caroling! Check the email archives for the schedule this year.
