Christmas Around the World

All around our planet Earth
We remember Jesus birth
For every kid straight haired or curled
It’s Christmas around the world
In Ethiopia they decorate umbrellas
In Mexico piñatas swing
In the Phillippines they eat purple rice
“puto bumbong” is fun to sing
PUTO BUMBONG!
(repeat)
PUTO BUMBONG!
(repeat)
Spainish carolers play Zambomba
Germans fill their shoes with hay
If you’re caroling out on Christmas Eve
You might live in the U.S.A!
PLAY ZAMBOMBA
(repeat)
PUTO BUMBONG!
(repeat)
All around our planet Earth…
In Scandanavia sweet St. Lucia
Carries candles in her crown
In Brazil you get a secret amigo
You find out (when) Christmas comes around
In Croatia they polish their boots
And every kid gets a twig and sweets
In Uganda they eat luwombo
That’s meat steamed in banana leaves
EAT LUWOMBO!!
(repeat)
PLAY ZAMBOMBA!!
(repeat)
PUTO BUMBONG!!
(repeat)
All around our planet Earth
We remember Jesus birth
For every kid straight haired or curled
It’s Christmas around the world
--Slugs and Bugs Christmas
