Originating from Peurto Rico, 'Feliz Navidad' was a popular Christmas song which was written back in 1970. This Christmas song was written in 1970 by José Feliciano. Jose Feliciano was a successful Peurto Rican singer-songwriter. This Christmas song, which has been internationally popular, has become a classic in not just Peurto Rico. It is also extremely popular throughout all the countries in the world which are Spanish speaking. As well as these numerous countries, 'Feliz Navidad' is also popular in the Phillipines, Canada and also the United States.

This well-loved Christmas song has a couple of very interesting feautures which can be attached to this song. The first feature of note is that in the song, there is a chorus, except this chorus, happens to be in Spanish. The chorus in 'Feliz Navidad' is just a simple chorus, which says (the traditional Christmas/New Year greeting, 'Feliz Navidad, próspero año y felicidad'. This Spanish chorus is an example of a typical greeting to which you would give at the festive Christmas period or in the New Year. When translating this simple Spanish chorus in to English, the translation is 'Merry Christmas, and a happy New Year'. The other interesting feature which is within 'Feliz Navidad' is that although there is Spanish text already mentioned in the song, there is also a verse which is in English. The verse which is in English goes along as 'I wanna wish you a Merry Christmas from the bottom of my heart'.

The popularity of Jose Feliciano's version of 'Feliz Navidad' has been amazing, and this can be evident by the fact, that his version happens to be one of the most downloaded and aired Christmas songs ever in both Canada and the United States. This popularity can even be statistically noted down, as the ASCAP actually noted that 'Feliz Navidad' was and is one of the top 25 most played and recorded Christmas songs around the world.This extremely popular version of 'Feliz Navidad' is an acoustic version where only an acoustic guitar and Puerto Rican cuatro. Also included in this version is the horn, the use of the horn was as a final touch.
