    That was a bit of whatname to post ...

    thought people might like to add some more expressions, explain or ask about some of the details, share experiences of Christmas traditions in Spain etc.

      Jane C, If you should want a real laugh with the Spanish language have a look at the "Beckham Interview" in todays Sunday Telegraph. It's a gas.

        Nothing to do with Christmas, and I am no fan of either Mr or Mrs Beckham. However, it seems to me that he is "cruising for a bruising" whatever he does in this instance. If he's seen as not bothering to even try with the language, then he will be criticised. When he does try, then his efforts are also going to be criticised. Let's face it, his command of the English language is far from brilliant .......................... Give the guy a break though, he is probably making more of an effort than many expats who have been here much longer than he has. I don't suppose that their children are going to a Spanish school which might give the parents a bit more of an incentive, so they could help with homework, etc.

          I wasn't going to look at this until I read in the other place that it is a spoof.
          Yes, very funny!
