On your own front door

Sure it’s Christmas, once more.”

A blend of languages to make a perfect Christmas song:

“A donde sea que yo esté

Tu corazón alcanzaré

Y una sonrisa en tu mirada pintaré

No habrá distancia entre los dos

Al viento volaré mi voz

Con mis deseos a tu alma llegaré.”


“Wherever I will be

I will reach your heart

And I’ll paint a smile on your face


There will be no distance between us

My voice will fly with the wind

It will arrive with my wishes into your soul”

8. Blue Christmas – Elvis Presley
