Merry Christmas from the McClintocks!
Wow, 2012 has been full of adventure and the day-to-day joys of being an expat. Thank you for taking the time to read about our family and to cheer us on!
In case you were wondering how to say a few Chrismas-related words in Chinese, here is a quick lesson for you...
Merry Christmas = Sheng dan kuai le (pronounced: shang dan kwhy luh)
Happy New Year = xin nian kuai le (pronounced: sheen nee-an kwhy luh)
Father Christmas = sheng dan lao ren (pronounced: shang dan laow rin, literally translates: Christmas old people!)
turkey = huo ji (pronounced huwoah gee, literally translates: fire chicken!)
By the way, the picture below is the one that didn't make the cut for this year's Christmas card!

had to literally be pulled into the photo
on the bean bag chair.
