The Christmas season/la Navidad is finally here! The air is quickly filling up with the holiday cheer that our familia and all that great food brings. Along with all of the great traditions that come with the holidays, we cannot forget about music! So let´s get ready to practice our villancicos.

Villancicos? Some of you might  know exactly what I’m talking about, and for the rest, you might be more familiar with them than the name leads you to believe. They are Spanish Christmas carols!

Villancicos were common poetic and musical forms during the 15th to 18th century in the Iberian Peninsula and Latin America. Yup, villancicos have a very long history that will surely get longer as we pass them down to our niños. We have prepared five posts for you with some of the most popular villancicos throughout Spain and Latin America.
