the following, i got from an email and i find it so cute, i just had to share it to anyone who cares to read it......... it's titled, "twas the night before Christmas - bilingual." 'Twas the night before Christmas and all through the casa - not a creature was stirring... Oye Chico!! Que pasa! Los niños were all tucked away in their camas some in long underwear and some in payamas. While mamá worked late in her little cocina, Papá cooked the pork in la "Caja China!" The stockings were hanging with mucho cuidado in hopes that Ol' Santa would feel obligado. To bring all the children, be they buenos o malos, a nice batch of dulces y muchos regalos. Outside in la calle there arose such a GRITO! That I jumped to my feet like a frightened gatico.. I ran to the window and looked pa' afuera, and who in the world do you think quien era? Santi Clo' in a sleigh, wearing a red Guayabera! And pulling his sleigh instead of venados, were eight burritos aterrizando vo lados. I watched as they came, as this fat little hombre was shouting and whistling and calling by nombre: Ay, Pancho! Ay, Pepe! Oye, Cuca! Ay, Beto! Ay, Nacho! Ay, Cuco, Maruca ?y su Nieto! Then standing erect with his hand on his pecho, He flew to the top of our own little techo! With his round little belly like a bowl of jalea, He looked around y entonces gritó! "Oye, chico, y... ¿ donde está la chimenea!?!?" Then huffing and puffing, and at last in our sala, With his bag of toys and his guayabera de gala. He filled ALL the stockings with lovely regalos, 'Cause none of the niños had been very malos, Then laughing out loud, seeming very contento, He turned like a flash and was gone como el viento. And then, I heard him exclaim, and this is PURA VERDAD. "MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL Y FELIZ NAVIDAD!!!! "

no, really, go ahead. i don't mind. that's the idea, after all. i want as many people to forward this to people they feel would appreciate this. it's from an aunt of mine who's in the US and who has been schooled in an exclusive girls school here in the philippines that was used to be run by Spanish nuns. thus the spanish words.
