Jingle Bells?

In honor of Christmas here is a video that we watched in class by a very famous Arab singer, Fairouz. She is a Lebanese Christian and did an Arabic cover of Jingle Bells. Although her deadpan expression is slightly creepy, I thought it was cool that there were Christmas songs in Arabic, seeing as there aren’t that many Arabic-speaking Christians. The song isn’t a direct translation, the title ‘Leilat Eid” means night of celebration and her lyrics are different as well. But in case you were looking for a more original holiday song, here you go!

Also, we are off school for our Winter Break all of next week so I probably won’t be posting since I won’t have Internet.

Happy Holidays everyone!
