Navidad, Navidad

Spanish-language Song Sung to Tune of 'Jingle Bells'

Navidad, Navidad, hoy es Navidad.
Con campanas este día hay que festejar.
Navidad, Navidad, porque ya nació
ayer noche, Nochebuena, el niñito Dios.

Translation

Christmas, Christmas, today is Christmas.
It is necessary to celebrate this with bells.
Christmas, Christmas, because just last night
the little baby God was born.

Translation notes

Hay que followed by an infinitive is a common way of saying that something needs to be done.

Ya is a vaguely defined adverb used to add emphasis. Its meaning is determined by the context.
