Aspettando Natale /Waiting for Christmas December 18, 2008

Filed under: Christmas,traditional songs — Gina @ 11:46 pm

Nel mese di Dicembre a scuola abbiamo lavorato e preparato tante cose per il Natale. Abbiamo imparato e cantato canti natalizi, abbiamo addobbato un albero riciclando bottiglie e bicchieri di plastica, abbiamo preparato, come lavoretto, la “scopina scacciaguai”.
La “scopina scacciaguai” è un piccola scopa che, non solo nel periodo di Natale, si tiene dietro la porta perchè, si dice, tenga lontano tutti i guai da casa.
Così, aspettando il Natale, ci siamo divertiti stando insieme in armonia.
During the month of December at school we worked and prepared a lots of things for Christmas. We learnt and sang Christmas Carols, we put up a tree recycling plastic bottles and glasses, we made, as a little work, the “little throw away troubles broom”.
The “little throw away troubles broom” is a little broom that, not only in Christmas time, is kept behind the door because, they say, it keeps away all the troubles from the home.
So, waiting for Christmas, we had fun staying together in harmony.
