In this lesson I will educate you how to say Satisfied New Calendar year in Spanish. I will also explain to you how Xmas is celebrated in Colombia although instructing you some new vocabulary phrases.
This is how you say Satisfied New Calendar year in Spanish:
“Feliz año nuevo!” But in new year Messages say “Feliz año!”
My first year in Colombia I celebrated the Xmas holidays in Barranquilla, Colombia. But every yr following that I celebrated the Christmas vacations in Medellin. Barranquilla and Medellin, just like the rest of Latin The us, really rejoice Xmas on Christmas Eve, the 24th.
Each year, I have a typical Colombian Christmas evening meal below: A evening meal consisting of “pollo relleno” (stuffed hen), “buñuelos” (I’d explain these as fried cheese balls), “natilla” (raw sugar pudding).
The only big difference among my Christmas dinner in Barranquilla and my the one 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 coastline of Colombia was already pre-cooked when acquired from the
“supermercado” and was currently stuffed with “carne, aceitunas, y huevos.” (meat, olives and eggs).
Being a non-traditionalist, I found myself cooking a couple of non-Colombian dishes for my “paisita” on Xmas Eve. The very last time I went to New York I made positive that I bought all the Puerto Rican and Dominican cooking substances that I would want to get again below to Medellin to cook dinner some
Puerto Rican or Dominican dishes that I experienced discovered from Boricua (Puerto Rican) and Dominican pals in New York.
From New York, I brought back Sazón, Adobo, Cilantro and, of training course, Sofrito. I might explain “Sofrito” as a slightly”picante” (spicy) Puerto Rican tomato sauce.
And with those components, I managed to cook dinner Puerto Rican or Dominican design dishes of “arroz amarillo” (yellow rice) and “habichuelas” (stewed crimson beans). But in Medellin, the term “habichuelas” indicates “string beans” and “frijoles” signifies “beans.”
