Feliz Navidad: A Christmas Playlist En Español

We here at Rocks Off love our Christmas music, except when we don't. Seriously, big box retailer and car commercials? Why must you always try to force the Christmas spirit on us a full two weeks before Thanksgiving? But then, about a week before the big day, when it is totally appropriate to do so, we get really hooked.

Personally, this member of Rocks Off has been a bit of a grinch these last several years. But in an attempt to turn away from our Scrooge-like ways, we'd like to offer an alternative list of Christmas songs that you can play while visiting family, opening presents, or eating an unhealthy amount of tamales.
