[The sharper among you may have noticed that some of the songs towards the end repeat. That’s because there are multiple versions of some of the same songs. See also the original blog post from 2006, or download the songs individually, for a limited time.]

Other Christmas Fun:

Ding Ding Dong (hilarious Hakka version MP3)

Christmas Classics in Cantonese (the song link is still good, but the Flash links below are mostly dead now)

The Christmas Story in Chinese (#005 and #006 in the New Testament)

    Any recommendation for where to find lyrics for these songs?

  2. […] The Sinosplice Chinese Christmas Song Album […]

  3. The second “Santa Claus is coming to town” uses the tune to “Frosty the Snowman”. How confusing…

  5. The toothpaste commercial honestly has left me speechless.
