Considering the season that is upon us I thought we could share some tunes to get into the holiday spirit with songs from around the world and along the ages.

ANY genre, language and tradition is welcome as long as they deal with Christmas and/or winter themes. This thread is for those who celebrate the birth of Christ, but also for those who simply embrace the magic of nature. It is for kids from 1 to 92 who haven't lost their sense of marvel, faith in the beauty of the world and human kind(ness).

Central and Eastern Europe seems a pretty awesome start to the journey :)

Very interesting and beautiful to see how people around the world celebrate Christmas. Thank you Girl for created this thread :advent:
I come with two different stiles, the first vid is a Villancico (Spanish name for Christmas song) from Andalusia and the second one and most special to me from Majorca along with more information of that medieval treasure
This one is not that happy but beautiful

I hope you enjoy :)

Thanks everyone for the lovely contributions. They are rather new things for me.

Dewster, I wasn't aware of Third Day. They sound awesome. I need to check out more of their music. I knew Enya obviously, but not this particular rendition. Marvelous, thank you :bow:

BWT, I must admit that I haven't had the chance yet to view the two shows you linked, but I will make time in the future. I did a quick scan and saw some familiar faces and voices. The shows are bound to be great. Btw, It's quite easy to upload videos and very similar to using links. You just need to press the icon I highlighted :)

Blue, it's soooo nice to see you back. I was about to post a missing person's report in the Smiles thread to track you down lolol Back in my school years I've learnt a couple of villancicos, but they weren't from Andalucia. Very interesting story about the Sibyl song too. Muchas gracias!!!

And since this is MJJC, how 'bout a stop in Motownville courtesy of some brilliant fellows from Gary, Indiana??? :D

^^^ :rofl: that was a good one Sheila. Guess Sump'n Claus is the man to go to, most especially for someone with my location. Being founder, owner & resident of Naughtyland kinda puts me at odds with Santa :p

blue eyes, thanks again for all the lovely videos. I remember other Freixenet commercials from ages ago and being surprised at the way the word was pronounced lol. We were taught Castellano, not Catalan in school. The other ones were really beautiful and inspiring. Keep 'em coming, but only when your health allows.

Some of the things I'm sharing here I'm discovering myself these days. My finds for today are


And in a similar spirit is this whole album https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TaAxI2GjFTs

Most probably is, but as they say, somebody's gotta do it :cheeky: I guess we'll have to ask him next time we see him :p

The commercial you posted was very, very sweet and inspiring. So much so, that it made me take a lil' walk down memory lane and I was suddenly reminded of my two favorite Christmas commercials/campaigns of all time.


He does exist :swoon:


The song and the visuals for these have always been favorites of mine for the holiday season. Wasn't aware of the British one though from 2006, very nice as well. Michael may have had his Pepsi thing goin' on, but I definitely got my own special Cola connection :p

Btw of the Frosty song you posted blue.....I found a very funny take on it from none other than Mr. Howard Donald from Take That who turns out to be quite the cheeky fellow :D In his #asthexmassonggoes series on his Twitter the other day he went ? frosty the snowman Melted and Mrs frosty spent Xmas alone ? lol

The Italian video was also very funny. I actually had something in mind including Italian, but it will have to wait for the next stop on this Christmas express :santa_elf:

Would you believe me blue if I told ya that I had a verrrry similar geographical/linguistic trip in mind? With the exception of Australia, I was also thinkin' of using French, Portuguese and Italian for a bit of a Latin flavor lolol. I guess I'll have to leave that for some other day. Your selection for today is absolutely excellent. Thank you so much :bow: Still laughin' at the Aussie one :lol:

I guess my destination for today is.....................Hungary :D


^^uses the melody for Gloria, in excelsis Deo


^^has the very same music as the Cola Christmas commercials from the other day. I presume the lyrics are a bit different though. I looooove the way the language sounds, but my braggin' rights when it comes to Hungarian are non-existent considering I know only a couple of words or so lolol. Great language and great people though. Love 'em much!

Some Hungarian medieval music as well https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sgh-txSNIJE

As a Christian, the magic of snow, the majesty of mountains and all other wonders of nature talk to me about the glory of God. However, that does not impede me to have respect for other people's beliefs. For some, today is a very important celebration - the Winter Solstice. Happy holiday to them :)

Which is why the music I'm compelled to listen to tonight has a Celtic flavor to it.



I've loved this ever since I've discovered it quite a few years ago. The full concert can be found here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HTQgKBPQkf0


And good, 'ole Bing with a seasonal favorite of mine
