Woman Cusses Out Friends While Singing "Feliz Navidad" At Christmas Party
It is one of the most popular songs of the Christmas season. And it is impossible to hear it come on the radio without singing along… or trying to sing along. Feliz Navidad is a fun song that includes both english and espanol (spanish) lyrics.
A recent study revealed that only 45% of Americans know the spanish words of the song… and those are Central and South Americans. The same study showed that only 2% of North Americans actually knew the words being sung in espanol. But that doesn’t stop us from singing those unknown words out “from the bottom of our heart.” Everyone can easily sing “Feliz Navidad,” even if they don’t know what the words mean. But after that, it always ends up being a loud mumbling of words that “sound Mexican” as one woman recently said, proudly wearing her “Make X-mas Great Again” Christmas sweater at her church Christmas party.
Usually no one cares because everyone has had enough eggnog or cherries jubilee to not know the difference. But during the annual party at The Well Church, where this year they had invited the Hispanic congregation to join them for the party. After singing several songs in english, and listening to the congregation from Nueva Vida sing some carols in their language, Sister Margaret had an idea. “Why don’t we all sing a Christmas hymn together? Feliz Navidad has the words in both American and Mexican. This could be fun..”
Sister Margaret queued up the song on her boom box and grabbed the mic, leading the crowd in a rousing rendition of the contemporary classic. When the song went full on espanol, Sister Margaret pulled the mic in close and began doing her thing. She thought she had nailed it. But her made up spanish words ended up saying things that she never intended, insulting the older women who were there, and calling for everyone to go eat in the bathroom.
Most of the Hispanic congregation walked out, though some gracious souls stayed. Sister Margaret looked bewildered until Sister Lucy came over and explained what happened. Margaret was quite embarrassed and asked Lucy how she knew what the mostly incoherent words were that she was using for filler. “Did you take Mexican in high school?”
“No,” replied Lucy. “I have the gift of tongues.”
