Today we will teach some vocabulary and expressions from the audio I sent yesterday of our family talking about Christmas memories.
Hoje vamos ensinar um pouco de vocabulário e expressões do áudio que enviei ontem da nossa família falando sobre lembranças do Natal.
FRASES NO MINI PODCAST DE HOJE:
How about you, Dad, when you were, like, growing up?
opened the gifts
go out and play in the snow
going down to Siegel’s Hill
going down the sled
have a delicious Christmas dinner together
going Christmas shopping
Watsontown and Milton
a reindeer there in a cage
What’s so funny about that, Lis?
caught me off guard
at least Santa wasn’t in the cage
I loved going Christmas shopping and then going to the Village Tea Room.
go there for lunch
another kind of roll that we just loved
Where was that?
it was freezing cold
we would go with snow on the ground
and in our boots and stuff
My Christmas memories aren’t the same thing as yours.
when you kids were growing up here
we would go down to the papelaria and look for cards and decorations for the tree
We were downtown at Festão
buying decorations for our Christmas tree
our first Christmas tree
it was pouring rain
we bought our little figurines for our manger scene
That was so exciting!
Didn’t Grandma make our manger scene?
our first manger scene
always the same
decorate the home
make our own decorations and have those ribbons stretched all over
Your memories are the… are those songs. It’s exactly that!
if I smell certain types of wax, you know, like you wax the floor, it reminds me of Christmas
If I smell tangerines, it reminds me of Christmas
My parents always got tangerines at Christmas time.
put it in our stocking
get stencils of stars and angels
take this wax that we put on the floor and you put it on it
take it off and it would dry
You’d have all these decorations on your window, and of course afterwards you can just wash them off and…
try to make it look like snow on the edge
angels that kept on going around
I had an angel of those, too, with candles.
We found them here one time.
light the candles and this thing keeps on going around
I think I remember that.
and they had a candle in it
it had a red light there
and every Christmas, we’d put them in our windows in the front of the house
You two had similar, like, traditions.
my mother always baked tons of pies and tons of cookies
during this time
I mean, cookies and pies like you wouldn’t believe.
Christmas caroling in the snow in the bus
you’re talking about church memories
go around on a bus
take baskets around to some shut-ins of our church and sing carols
I always had to be a shepherd.
How come you were the pastor’s daughter and had to be the shepherd?
there weren’t enough fellows
shepherds for the play
You’d better be a shepherd than a tree; right?
How about you, kids, do you remember Christmas in the States?
so when it gets hot, we feel more Christmassy than in the cold
I have two feelings of Christmas. One of them is hot and the other is cold.
