Merry Christmas. Joyeux Noel. And Feliz Navidad.
Here’s an annual favorite, a bilingual greeting by Puerto Rican/American singer/guitarist Jose Feliciano. Although the song has been covered by others artists, including Celine Dion and Michael Buble, Feliciano’s original version of “Feliz Navidad” has enjoyed steady play on the holiday season airwaves for decades.
What does this song mean?
Here’s a fairly close translation, such as you might find with a Spanish-English Dictionary.
Feliz Navidad – Merry Christmas
Prospero Año – Prosperous New Year
y Felicidad.- and Happiness
Did you know?
Jose Feliciano was blinded by glaucoma as a young child, but he focused on music and became a pop and rock legend.
