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.)
- Mia moglie ama fare acquisti per i regali di Natale molto presto.
My wife likes to shop for Christmas gifts very early.
- Questo processo è 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.)
