Shopping for Christmas 2018


Day 138 of My Italian Learning Journal*
_____________________

My wife is great about planning gifts for Christmas -- better than I am. This evening we ordered a Mickey Mouse tote purse for one of our daughters who loves Mickey Mouse items. So there I am already placing orders for next Christmas. I guess I am bypassing Santa Claus and beginning to collect gifts for our family members. My wife has a decorative trunk where she stashes the presents during the months leading up to next Christmas. As for me, there are times when I am shopping a day or two before Christmas day. (Now for a short practice script in Italian -- grammar corrections are welcome.)

Ascolta Questo:
  • Mia moglie ama fare acquisti per i regali di Natale molto presto.
    My wife likes to shop for Christmas gifts very early.
  • Questo processo รจ iniziato stasera.
    This process began tonight.
  • Ero online ordinando il primo regalo per una figlia, dieci mesi prima di Natale.
    I was online ordering the first gift for a daughter, ten months before Christmas.
  • Amazon sta andando a sostituire Babbo Natale? (Ne dubito.)
    Is Amazon going to replace Santa Claus? (I doubt that.)
Alla prossima!
