Christmas presents

#Merry Christmas #Feliz Navidad And Goodbye 2020, finally! Adiós a 2020, por fin!

Hi all:

I’m particularly disorganised this year, but I didn’t want to miss the opportunity of sending you some Season Greetings. This has been a terrible year for all, even for those of us who’ve been lucky enough not to have been too personally affected by it (and my thoughts go to those who have lost a loved one and/or are still trying to get over the illness and its aftermath).

I didn’t know what to do this year, and I remembered Paul, a fellow blogger (if you love daily quizzes, love films, TV series, and enjoy quirky music and are after some pretty encyclopedic knowledge on all kinds of things, you must check his blog here), suggested that I could turn my little bilingual book into a video, and I’ve done that. I’ve only used the images, but the book is pretty short, so you’ll probably get a sense of what it’s about. Thankfully for anybody who might watch it, neither the images (thanks to Unsplash) nor the music (YouTube’s own free offerings) are mine, so don’t worry. You’re probably safe.

As I went over the images and words for the video, I thought of other possible translations and variations for some of them, but I decided to leave them as they are. Translation is a pretty subjective matter, in any case, but in case you are students of English or Spanish, these are not literal translations. In some cases, they are far from it.

And now, here comes the video, and please, stay safe this holiday season, if you celebrate it at all. Hopefully, there will be more, and we’ll be able to celebrate them as we’d like. But his year, be careful.

Take care.

Thanks for being there! ¡Muchas gracias!

Thank you for the video, Olga. Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy 2021!

Great idea with the video Olga. I did very much enjoy this book. Thanks for the warm wishes, have a safe and healthy rest of the year, then give it the boot! 🙂 <3

Thanks, Debby! It was Paul’s suggestion to make a video, and it worked quite well. And your advice is splendid.Yes, it’s time to give 2020 the boot! Stay safe and smiling, my friend!

Thanks, Debbi! Paul always comes up with great suggestions, as we both know. ¡Muchas gracias y felices fiestas! ¡Feliz año nuevo! Keep safe and enjoy the holiday season! Let’s hope for a much better 2021 (well, at this point in time, even a bit better will do). ♥

Belated holiday wishes, Olga. I hope you’ve had a wonderful Christmas weekend.
I already loved the book. I’m so pleased you made this video of it. How cool for Yule! Thank you for this lovely, heartfelt post. Hugs on the wing!

Thanks, Teagan. I hope you had a good festive weekend as well. Christmas was low-key, although at least we managed to meet with my cousin, who was otherwise going to spend it alone. This was usually a fairly busy time of the year, but well, let’s hope things improve in 2021. Take care and good luck with all your projects.
