Special Edition: Gaudium Mundo - A Month of Latin Holidays Songs

It's December 1, so the Gaudium Mundo blog is back in action, with Latin holiday songs for every day of the month. This project started way back in 2006, and it has grown over the years thanks to the songs people have contributed. So, I hope you will enjoy this month of Latin songs, and if you have any songs you would like to contribute, alternate translations, links to YouTube videos, anything at all, please let me know! For today's post, I've pasted in the month-long calendar of songs from the blog so you can see what's coming up. Happy holidays!
