I can't write a post without a fabulous picture to go with it so here you go.....my littles ready to go on our annual "see the lights" ride. Homemade cookies, hot cocoa and jammies...nothing better! :) (One child missed out on the extras of the cookies and cocoa. Bet you can't guess which one)
This month in school we've been studying about "Christmas Around the World". It's been fun to learn how other cultures celebrate and to hear Kyalynn trying so hard to say Merry Christmas in another language! LOL! So I thought it would be fun to share with you some of what we learned this month.
How to say Merry Christmas in:
China - Kung Hei Shing Taan (goong-hoh-sheng-tahn)
Russia - S'Rozhdestvom Khristovym (z'roh-DESHT-vohm KRIS-too-vim)
Mexico - Feliz Navidad (feh-LEES na-vee-DAHD)
Swahili (Africa) - Sikukuu ya Kuzaliwa Kristo (see-koo-koo yah koo-zah-lee-wah kree-stow)
Arabic (Saudi Arabia) - Miladun Said (mee-lah-doon sah-yeed)
France - Joyeaux Noel (Zwah-YUH noh-EHL)
Hawaii - Mele Kalikimaka (MAY-lay kah-LEE-kee MAH-kah)
Brazil - Feliz Natal (feh-LEES nah-TAHL)
Tamil (Sri Lanka) - Kirusmas Vazphuphal (KROOZ-ma FAR-too-dal)
Norway - God Jul (good yool)
Go on. Try at least one. It's fun! Oh, and just in case I don't get a chance to get back on here.....
