In this lesson I will teach you how to say Satisfied New Yr in Spanish. I will also notify you how Christmas is celebrated in Colombia whilst instructing you some new vocabulary terms.
This is how you say Pleased New Calendar year in Spanish:
“Feliz año nuevo!” But in Colombia they merely say “Feliz año!”
My very first yr in Colombia I celebrated the Xmas holidays in Barranquilla, Colombia. But new year quotes after that I celebrated the Christmas vacations in Medellin. Barranquilla and Medellin, just like the rest of Latin The usa, in fact rejoice Christmas on Christmas Eve, the twenty fourth.
Each year, I have a normal Colombian Christmas supper here: A meal consisting of “pollo relleno” (stuffed hen), “buñuelos” (I’d describe these as fried cheese balls), “natilla” (raw sugar pudding).
The only distinction amongst my Xmas evening meal in Barranquilla and my the a single 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 previously pre-cooked when bought from the
“supermercado” and was presently stuffed with “carne, aceitunas, y huevos.” (meat, olives and eggs).
Being a non-traditionalist, I located myself cooking a few of non-Colombian dishes for my “paisita” on Christmas Eve. The final time I went to New York I made certain that I purchased all the Puerto Rican and Dominican cooking components that I would need to consider back again below to Medellin to prepare dinner some
Puerto Rican or Dominican dishes that I experienced realized from Boricua (Puerto Rican) and Dominican buddies in New York.
From New York, I introduced again Sazón, Adobo, Cilantro and, of system, Sofrito. I’d describe “Sofrito” as a marginally”picante” (spicy) Puerto Rican tomato sauce.
And with those elements, I managed to prepare dinner Puerto Rican or Dominican fashion dishes of “arroz amarillo” (yellow rice) and “habichuelas” (stewed pink beans). But in Medellin, the phrase “habichuelas” implies “string beans” and “frijoles” means “beans.”
