Arre Caballito
(Hurry Little Pony)

The little pony carries the Holy Mother, as they make their way to Bethlehem


Tres Pajarillos

Birds are symbolic of the Christmas Season, for in the darkest time of the year, a chirping bird reminds us that spring will come, bringing new life and light


Cantan la Pastorcitos
(Shepherd's Lullaby)
Entren Santos Peregrinos
(Enter Holy Pilgrim)

A posada is a re-creation of Mary and Joseph's search for a place to stay in Bethlehem. Participants carry lit candles and walk through their village. They stop at homes along the way, exchanging the song of the pilgrims.


A la Puerto del Cielo
(At the Gates of Heaven)

Three Kings Day, January 6, is the most exciting time for children in Puerto Rico. On the eve of January 6, Children leave their shoes under their beds or on their doorsteps hoping that the kings will leave gifts for them.

Zumba Zumba

This song is one of the most beloved carols in the Catalan region of Spain. This simple happy tune feature a shepherd boy who asks, "What shall I give to the Babe in the manger?"


Piņatas are a highpoint of the Christmas festivities in Mexico. Whole villages gather for the breaking of piņatas on Christmas.
