In this lesson I will instruct you how to say Happy New Calendar year in Spanish. I will also explain to you how Christmas is celebrated in Colombia while instructing you some new vocabulary terms.
This is how you say Satisfied New Year in Spanish:
“Feliz año nuevo!” But in Colombia they simply say “Feliz año!”
My initial 12 months in Colombia I celebrated the Christmas 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 relaxation of Latin America, really celebrate Christmas on Xmas Eve, the twenty fourth.
Each and every year, I have a common Colombian Christmas dinner listed here: A evening meal consisting of “pollo relleno” (stuffed chicken), “buñuelos” (I might explain these as fried cheese balls), “natilla” (uncooked sugar pudding).
The only distinction among my Christmas evening meal in Barranquilla and my the 1 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 currently pre-cooked when purchased from the
“supermercado” and was previously stuffed with “carne, aceitunas, y huevos.” (meat, olives and eggs).
Currently being new year 2021 images -traditionalist, I found myself cooking a couple of non-Colombian dishes for my “paisita” on Xmas Eve. The last time I went to New York I made certain that I purchased all the Puerto Rican and Dominican cooking ingredients that I would need to consider back again listed here to Medellin to prepare dinner some
Puerto Rican or Dominican dishes that I experienced uncovered from Boricua (Puerto Rican) and Dominican pals in New York.
From New York, I brought again Sazón, Adobo, Cilantro and, of program, Sofrito. I might describe “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 Medellin, the word “habichuelas” indicates “string beans” and “frijoles” means “beans.”
