Tired of the same old holiday tunes? Travel around the world in song with DARIA to see how families celebrate both Christmas and Hanukkah.
Christmas Music from Around the World
I love Christmas! That may even be an understatement!
I love the smells, pretty lights, special times crafting with my kids, unwrapping presents, and of course – the Christmas Music!
Sure I have my favorite songs we listen to year after year, but it is always nice to add some new ones to the repertoire. In Songs for Merry Multicultural Mirth, folksinger DARIA shares 5 Christmas Songs from Around the World:
- Feliz Navidad (Spain)
- Oh Dreydl
- Ihr Kinderlien Kommet (German)
- Ocho Candelikas
- Rockin’ Jingle Bells
Homeschooling with Christmas Music
As a homeschooler, I love incorporating Christmas into our December studies. DARIA’s Songs for Merry Multicultural Mirth is a great way to teach kids about other countries and cultures through music and play. On this holiday cd, DARIA shares music from Spain and Germany.
