La Rama

La Rama (the branch) is a holiday tradition that takes place during the dates of the Posadas, from 16 to 24 December in the south and center of the state of Veracruz. (source)


1. From Veracruz we come walking
   And we are looking for the baby Jesus

2. In a little hut of lime and sand
   Jesus was born on Christmas Eve

3. Go outside, look at what beauties
    You will see the branch covered in flowers

4. Oranges and limes, limes and lemons
    The Virgin even more beautiful than all of the flowers

Vamos Todos a Belén

Let's all go to Bethlehem with love and joy, 
We will worship the Lord our Redeemer.

Verse 1
The star sheds a Divine sweetness 
beautiful maiden gives us the Savior.

Verse 2
Night was day, an angel came down, 
Swimming in lights, they told us this:

Verse 3
Happy shepherds, joy triumphed, 
the sky is torn, life was born.

Verse 4
Happy sighs my chest will breathe
with my burning tongue, I will sing your love.

Dime niño ¿de quién eres?

English translation:

Tell me, child, who are you from? 
dressed in white
I am of the Virgin Mary and the Holy Spirit 

Sounding with joy the songs of my land 
and live God's child, who was born on Christmas Eve 

Christmas Eve comes and
Christmas Eve goes
We will leave
and will not return more
