In this lesson I will educate you how to say Satisfied New Year in Spanish. I will also tell you how Xmas is celebrated in Colombia while instructing you some new vocabulary terms.

This is how you say Pleased New Yr in Spanish:

“Feliz año nuevo!” But in Colombia they just say “Feliz año!”

My initial 12 months in Colombia I celebrated the Christmas vacations in Barranquilla, Colombia. But each calendar year right after that I celebrated the Xmas vacations in Medellin. Barranquilla and Medellin, just like the rest of Latin The usa, truly rejoice Xmas on Xmas Eve, the twenty fourth.

Every single 12 months, I have a typical Colombian Christmas supper right here: A supper consisting of “pollo relleno” (stuffed rooster), “buñuelos” (I would explain these as fried cheese balls), “natilla” (raw sugar pudding).

The only variation among my Xmas dinner in Barranquilla and my the one in Medellin is that my new “novia paisa” (girlfriend from Medellin) cooked the “pollo relleno” from scratch. new year Messages that I had on the coastline of Colombia was currently pre-cooked when obtained from the
“supermercado” and was currently stuffed with “carne, aceitunas, y huevos.” (meat, olives and eggs).

Being a non-traditionalist, I located myself cooking a pair of non-Colombian dishes for my “paisita” on Christmas Eve. The final time I went to New York I produced confident that I acquired all the Puerto Rican and Dominican cooking elements that I would need to have to take again below to Medellin to prepare dinner some
Puerto Rican or Dominican dishes that I had realized from Boricua (Puerto Rican) and Dominican friends in New York.

From New York, I brought again Sazón, Adobo, Cilantro and, of program, Sofrito. I might describe “Sofrito” as a slightly”picante” (spicy) Puerto Rican tomato sauce.

And with these ingredients, I managed to cook dinner Puerto Rican or Dominican design dishes of “arroz amarillo” (yellow rice) and “habichuelas” (stewed red beans). But in Medellin, the phrase “habichuelas” implies “string beans” and “frijoles” implies “beans.”
