Happy Holidays, dear readers! Let me share with you top Spanish Christmas songs and my personal Vintage Christmas Playlist! Hope you’ve had an amazing Christmas and now you are getting ready for New Year´s Eve. This year I´m celebrating both of them at home, with my Spanish family and our 5-months-old Leticia. So, it´s all about cozy time by the fireplace, Christmas jumpers, and festive music…

Top Spanish Christmas Songs & My Vintage Christmas Playlist

Holidays at home

As much as I love European Christmas markets, sometimes it’s all about traveling from home and bringing in the festive vibes. As our daughter is only 5-months-old, we´ve decided to start family travels from some warmer destinations, like the Canary Islands, or any other cool Spanish Islands.

But then I thought that there might be other people out there who dream of traveling or experiencing winter in Spain, but simply can’t make it happen over this holiday season. So why not bring Spain to you?

Traditional Spanish Christmas songs, also known as villancicos, are the unmissable attributes of each holiday season in Spain. Although there are quite a few Christmas pop hits you can hear on the radio. So let´s mix in a bit of everything.

In this post, I’ll share with you popular Spanish Christmas songs, Spanish Christmas songs for kids, and at the end will add my personal vintage Christmas playlist for this holiday season. You can’t have too much Christmas inspiration, can you?

My Vintage Christmas Playlist

As much as I enjoy listening to the Spanish Christmas songs in my car, my absolute favorites for this time of the year are the Christmas oldies. Next year we´ll be moving to a new house: so I’m already eyeing one of those antique phonographs with a bunch of new Spanish records: it all just sounds so cozy on vinyl. I know some say vinyl is of lower resolution etc, but there is still something timeless and magical about it, don’t you think so?

  • Bing Crosby – “White Christmas”
  • Ella Fitzgerald – “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas”
  • Burl Ives – “Holly Jolly Christmas”
  • Perry Como – “Magic Moments”
  • Frank Sinatra – “Strangers in The Night”

  • Stevie Wonder – “Someday At Christmas”
