Our favorite non-traditional sounds of Christmas is the Spanish Carol (Villancico) "Con Mi Burrito Sabanero" (With my Grasslands Donkey). It's a about a little boy riding his little burro (dunkey) to Bethlehem, singing and playing his cantrico all the way. Translation of the original Spanish song is below: I am riding to Bethlehem on my grasslands donkey. If you see me, I’m going to Bethlehem. I sing with my cantrico as my donkey trots. Hurry up, my little donkey, we’re almost there. Hurry up, my little donkey, we’re going to see Jesus. Spanish Lyrics: Con mi burrito sabanero voy camino de Belén con mi burrito sabanero voy camino de Belén Si me ven, si me ven voy camino de Belén si me ven, si me ven voy camino de Belén. Con mi cuatrico voy cantando mi burrito va trotando con mi cuatrico voy cantando mi burrito va trotando Tuqui tuqui tuqui tuqui Tuqui tuqui tuquitá apurate mi burrito que ya vamos a llegar Tuqui tuqui tuqui tuqui tuqui tuqui tuquitú apurate mi burrito vamos a ver a Jesús Many Spanish artists have sign this wonderful "villancico" either on traditional, salsa, merengue, and many other genders. Thanks, Alma

I love all kinds of music and Christmas music so to hear other sounds of Christmas music from other countries would be delightful.

We have a selection of Christmas songs by ... Elvis Presley! They're wonderful -- and a reflection of American generational culture!

My favorite Christmas CD is called 18 Strings For Christmas recorded and performed by my husband Rich Arnold. It's a guitar jazz version of all my favorite holiday songs...I love it! He recorded this CD right after his kidney transplant in December 2005.

We love to listen to "Mr. Stinky Feet's Christmas" CD. One of our favorite songs is "Hey Santa, Hey Santa." We love the part when he requests is sister to be put on Santa's naughty list. It is so cute and funny! Mr. Stinky feet is also known as Jim Cosgrove.

I love Cajun and Zydeco holiday music! You can't hear it without wanting to dance and celebrate.

Music and voices that express joy, reverence and gratitude? It would be a treat to listen to music of the heart from around the world. As long as there is music, there is hope. I imagine the Putumayo Christmas collection to be the voice of hope from around the world. I haven't found my favorite non-traditional sound of Christmas, but perhaps it will be in this collection.

One of my favorite Christmas memories is of my 2 daughters and my niece standing on the fireplace hearth singing and dancing to Feliz Navidad; and we live in Louisiana! They were the cutest!

I had a wonderful time in Quetzal, Guatamala one Christmas and the music was great. I can't think of any song in particular but very distinct and traditional.

My favorite non-traditional Christmas sounds are the songs from "The Sound of Music". As a little girl, I grew up without a T.V. in our house, so going to Grandma's house at Christmastime and watching T.V. was a huge treat! "The Sound of Music" was always shown Christmas Eve, and I was a rather older adult when I finally realized that it is not, in fact, a Christmas movie! Still, the songs remind me of Christmas whenever I hear them!

My favorite Christmas song is Santa La Noche by Andrea Bocelli. My favorite non-traditional song is The 12 Days of Christmas by the acapella group Straight No Chaser!

My favorite non-traditional sounds of Christmas are the sounds of Mannheim Steamroller. Most of their works are upbeat, festive, with a little traditional tossed in. I always smile and tap my feet when the music starts. I always think happy times when I hear their sound of Christmas.

I can't get over tchaikovsky during the Holidays--but I guess that's pretty traditional

I have a Calypso Christmas collection which I love - combines my two favorites: Christmastime & anything to remind me of a hanging out at the beach :-)

I really like the Maybe This Christmas CD series of music by contemporary artists. Chris Martin's version of "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" (my favorite Christmas song)is really beautifully done!

We were a multi-cultural family long before it became a popular thing to be! We'd love to have a Christmas album that's eclectic - fitting all members of the family! Thanks!
