    Hey there,

    Most are correct. I would recomend revising a few:

    chicken - pollo: do you mean a live chicken or a roasted one? if the bird is alive, I'd call it "gallina", tohugh pollo works too it can in some places make more reference to a "ready to be eaten" chicken rather than a living hen.

    Melchior: a thome (mexico city) we call him "Melchor"

    Little drummer boy: if it refers to the song, we call it "el niño del tambor", you can find hte lyrics in Sp. if you google it like that

    Christ our Savior is Born: a better verb conjugation would be Cristo nuestro Salvador ha nacido (ha instead of es)

    Stable: establO, if it has an e its an adjective that means something is not budging, its firm, if it has an o at the end its a non for a place where you keep horses... so establo

    balthazar: we spell it like this "Baltasar"

    That's all for I can comment on. good luck!
