Argh! It feels like Christmas! I’m so excited to share this with you!
A few months ago now, I shared the idea of creating a multilingual Christmas song with some language learning friends.
Now, it’s ready. (Just in time for Christmas!)
Have you seen The Muppet Christmas Carol? It’s my all-time favourite Christmas film. One of my favourite Christmas songs? It Feels Like Christmas from that film.
Who’s in the video?

She’s also got some Esperanto in the mix and is currently learning Mandarin Chinese. You might recognise her because back in May, Sis visited my little town and stayed with us for the weekend!

The lyrics are on the screen in both the language they’re being sung in and English. The English translation is the original lyrics, not the translation.
If you want to sing along or learn the lyrics, I’ve put them onto a PDF for you. Click below to get it riggggght….now.
I hope you enjoy the song!
It feels like Christmas!
