  2. Ti's the night before Christmas and all through the casa
    Not a creature is stirring. Caramba, ¿que pasa?
    The stockings are hanging con mucho cuidado
    In hopes that St. Nicholas will feel obligado.
    To leave a few cosas aqui y alli
    For chicos y chicas (y something for me).

    Los niños are snuggled all safe in their camas
    Some in vestidos and some in pajamas.
    Their little cabezas all full of good things,
    They're all esperando que Santa will bring.
    To all of the children, both buenos y malos
    A nice batch of dulce and other regalos.

    While mama worked late in little cocina
    El Viejo was down at the corner cantina
    Living it up with his amigos. ¡Carajo!
    ¡Muy contento y un poco borracho!
    And soon he'll return to his home, zigzagueando,
    Lit up like the Star Spangled Banner cantando
    Outside in the yard there arose such a grito
    I jumped to my feet like a frightened cabrito

    I ran to the ventana and looked out afuera,
    ¿And who in the world do you think que era?
    St. Nick in a sleigh and a big red sombrero
    Came dashing along like a crazy bombero!
    And pulling his sleigh instead of venados
    Were eight little burros, approaching volados.
    I watched as they came and this quaint little hombre
    Was shouting and whistling and calling by nombre:
    "¡Ay Pancho! ¡Ay Pepe! ¡Ay Cuca! ¡Ay Beto!
    ¡Ay Chato! ¡y Chapo! ¡Muraca y Nieto!"

    Then standing erect with his hands on his pecho
    He flew to the top of our very own techo.
    With his round y gran belly like a bowl of jalea,
    He struggled to squeeze down our old chimenea.

    Puffing, he finally stood in our sala,
    With soot smeared all over his red suit de gala.
    He filled all the stockings with lovely regalos,
    (For none of the niños had been muy malos).
    Then chuckling aloud, seeming muy contento,
    He turned in a flash and went like el viento.

    And I heard him exclamar - y eso es verdad -
    Merry Christmas a todos! Feliz Navidad!

  3. Carina! Gracias por tan encantador y tan peculiar historia! Me hizo recordar (aunque un pelin) de Rydbergs Endast tomten är vaken...
    Good stuff so to say.
    God fortsättning önksar jag dig!
