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.
Thanks for being there! ¡Muchas gracias!
