In this lesson I will teach you how to say Happy New Year in Spanish. I will also inform you how Christmas is celebrated in Colombia although educating you some new vocabulary phrases.
new year status is how you say Pleased New Calendar year in Spanish:
“Feliz año nuevo!” But in Colombia they simply say “Feliz año!”
My initial 12 months in Colombia I celebrated the Xmas vacations in Barranquilla, Colombia. But each and every 12 months following that I celebrated the Xmas holidays in Medellin. Barranquilla and Medellin, just like the rest of Latin The united states, truly celebrate Christmas on Christmas Eve, the twenty fourth.
Each yr, I have a typical Colombian Christmas evening meal listed here: A evening meal consisting of “pollo relleno” (stuffed hen), “buñuelos” (I’d describe these as fried cheese balls), “natilla” (uncooked sugar pudding).
The only variation between 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 experienced on the coast of Colombia was currently pre-cooked when acquired from the
“supermercado” and was presently stuffed with “carne, aceitunas, y huevos.” (meat, olives and eggs).
Getting a non-traditionalist, I discovered myself cooking a few of non-Colombian dishes for my “paisita” on Xmas Eve. The previous time I went to New York I created sure that I acquired all the Puerto Rican and Dominican cooking ingredients that I would need to have to take back again below to Medellin to cook some
Puerto Rican or Dominican dishes that I experienced realized from Boricua (Puerto Rican) and Dominican close friends in New York.
From New York, I introduced again Sazón, Adobo, Cilantro and, of program, Sofrito. I would explain “Sofrito” as a marginally”picante” (spicy) Puerto Rican tomato sauce.
And with those ingredients, I managed to cook dinner Puerto Rican or Dominican fashion dishes of “arroz amarillo” (yellow rice) and “habichuelas” (stewed pink beans). But in Medellin, the term “habichuelas” signifies “string beans” and “frijoles” implies “beans.”
