Once upon A Time in a Land Far Far Away --- Well about a 1,000 miles South, I actually studied Latin at a time when public schools still offered such strangeness. As a result one of my favorite Christmas carols has always been Adeste Fidelis, sung here beautifully by Enya. To this day when singing along to "Come All Ye Faithful", I will do it in Latin totally confusing anybody on either side of me.
By the time the children got to school, the language of choice was Spanish. As a result, Jose Feliciano got a great deal of air time around the house as they were learning Feliz Navidad
Then the grandaughter hit French class ... Oh Holy Night got a beautiful going over as Cantique de Noel
Are there carols or songs that you just prefer in a language other than English?
