For Christmas: Fairuz sings “Jingle Bells” in Arabic


I wasn’t going to put out a Christmas special this year until I happened upon this: Fairuz, one of the most popular Arabic singers, doing “Jingle Bells.” This version has very sweet subtitles which are mainly pretty good, but are charmingly goofy when they go off the rails.

Who is it, do you suppose, who’s delivering all those dates? And what’s with the bracelet?

Happy Christmas to all.

  1. The “hand hanging on the tree” sounds like something out of one of Wilum’s stories.

    Well I’ve never heard it sung like that before. Different, I’ll say that!
