In this lesson I will train you how to say Pleased New Calendar year in Spanish. I will also inform you how Christmas is celebrated in Colombia even though training you some new vocabulary words.
This is how you say Pleased New 12 months in Spanish:
“Feliz año nuevo!” But in Colombia they simply say “Feliz año!”
My initial year in Colombia I celebrated the Xmas holidays in Barranquilla, Colombia. But each and every 12 months following that I celebrated the Christmas vacations in Medellin. Barranquilla and Medellin, just like the relaxation of Latin America, really rejoice Xmas on Xmas Eve, the twenty fourth.
Each calendar year, I have a typical Colombian Christmas evening meal listed here: A evening meal consisting of “pollo relleno” (stuffed chicken), “buñuelos” (I’d describe these as fried cheese balls), “natilla” (raw sugar pudding).
The only difference amongst my Xmas meal in Barranquilla and my the one particular in Medellin is that my new “novia paisa” (girlfriend from Medellin) cooked the “pollo relleno” from scratch. The pollo relleno that I had on the coast of Colombia was already pre-cooked when bought from the
“supermercado” and was presently stuffed with “carne, aceitunas, y huevos.” (meat, olives and eggs).
Becoming a non-traditionalist, I identified myself cooking a few of non-Colombian dishes for my “paisita” on Christmas Eve. The very last time I went to New York I made sure that I acquired all the Puerto Rican and Dominican cooking ingredients that I would want to just take back here to Medellin to cook dinner some
Puerto Rican or Dominican dishes that I had uncovered from Boricua (Puerto Rican) and Dominican friends in New York.
From New York, I brought back again Sazón, Adobo, Cilantro and, of course, Sofrito. I would explain “Sofrito” as a marginally”picante” (spicy) Puerto Rican tomato sauce.
And with these substances, I managed to cook Puerto Rican or Dominican type dishes of “arroz amarillo” (yellow rice) and “habichuelas” (stewed red beans). But in new year quotes , the phrase “habichuelas” means “string beans” and “frijoles” indicates “beans.”
