The music is often accompanied by singing and dancing, and it reflects various themes, such as love, patriotism, religion, and social issues.

Along with these, the show also includes some songs that are not specifically related to Christmas but showcase the diversity and beauty of Mexican culture and music, such as Cielito Lindo, La Bamba, Guadalajara, and El Rey. It is a lively and joyful celebration that encourages the audience to sing along, clap, and dance.
