    Feliz Navidad .... okay... I've only seen the words... But being from South Texas,,, I imagine this is the way peeps say in down the Rio Grand Valley.. I've also seen it on greeting cards. I know a Spanish song with the same title... Okay, I'm gonna stick to the way I say it... "Merry Christmas"... to all...love PD
