Hope you have a great Christmas, Josh 🙂

OH dear …. I’ll get onto it, Christine 😦

I’ve only just got home after being away for over two weeks visiting the Christmas markets in Germany, Prague and Budapest 🙂

Have sent you an extensive response by email, Christine. Hope it helps 🙂
fantastic Marianne, it looks very comprehensive, we will sit together and go through it all over the holiday period … you are very kind!

That tree must have been really something at night, Marianne. Feliz Navidad to you and yours, in case I don’t catch up with you beforehand. 🙂
I’m hoping to get into Malaga city over the next week or two to see the Christmas Lights … they are said to be the best ever 🙂
Merry Christmas, Meredith …. hope you have a great time 🙂
I’m looking forward to seeing the Malaga lights, Marianne. 🙂
Feliz Navidad is the one that does it for me, but I LOVE los regalos. (Did i get that right?)
Yes you did! I love los regalos, too Gemma 🙂
We woke up this morning and the temperature here was -28.8 C. And people wonder why my wife and I are moving to Andalucia in 2014.

The only Spanish I understand around here is “hey, CHICCA!” Rugby boy has just started learing Spanish, and he loves it. I don’t understand a word of what he says, which he enjoys even more because he can throw rude words in for good measure.
Ah yes …. Spanish football grounds are always a good place to pick up swear words 😉
I don’t think I’ll take the risk, he’s learning enough as it is via internet. Sigh… If I had Antonio Banderas at home I might make an effort to learn though….
Ah…. but once you realise that Antonio Banderas translated into English is “Tony Flags” ….the appeal diminishes somewhat!! lol 🙂
I’m not bothered about his flags 😉
Eek! Antoni O.
LOL …. it’s resaca!
I remember when we first came to Spain, my Spanish teacher (who was only a young man) was talking about resaca … and we thought it might be his girlfriend’s name 🙂
I would add “Villancicos de Navidad” Marianne – Christmas Carols – just cannot get away from them, supermarkets, garage forecourts etc.etc!
Feliz Navidad, Michael.
My first Christmas in Spain I was confused when people started talking about “Pascua” which is Easter in Italian – but no, they use it in Spain to talk about Christmas! And I also thought “how rude!” when people respnded to greetings by saying “igualmente” – imagine saying “likewise” in English if someone wished you “Merry Christmas” – but soon realised it was just a normal response 🙂
Ah yes ….. Feliz Navidad to you and the Big Man!
Estámos de puñeteras vacaciones – ¡¡¡¡OTRA VEZ!!!!
That’s what. Sigh.
Merry Christmas 🙂
Same to you 🙂
