Lesson Transcript

Hello I am Rosa and this is Spanish weekly words holiday’s edition. I am about to see what the holiday for today is. So the holiday for today is San Isidro. San Isidro is the Patron Saint of Madrid and in Madrid, they celebrate this day with some traditional dances. I don’t know how they dance in Madrid and also it is the start of the bullfighting season. [Las fiestas de San Isidro Labrador se celebran sólo en Madrid.] - “San Isidro’s Day is only celebrated in Madrid.”
[Ermita de San Isidro] This is a “hermitage dedicated to San Isidro”. It is said that its waters are magical or like make some kind of miracle, I don’t know. [The water from the hermitage of St. Isidro is magical. ] - “The waters from the hermitage of San Isidro’s are magical.”
[cabezudo] - “Carnival Figures with oversized heads”. So like go to the streets and start like dancing and they are pretty funny but when I was a child, I used to be scared of him. [Cuando era pequeña me daban miedo los cabezudos.] - “When I was a child, I was scared of the carnival figures with oversized heads.”
[rosquillas] which means “donuts”. These [rosquillas] are called dumb [rosquillas] if they are not covered, they are called dumb donuts and if they are covered with a sugar glaze, they are called like clever donuts [rosquillas listas]. [Me encanta comer rosquillas tontas.] - “I love eating dumb donuts.”
[garrapiñado] which is “sugared nuts”. Normally they are Almonds but we have also other types of nuts and they normally sell them on the streets. I love them [Quiero comprar una bolsa de almendras garrapiñadas.] - “I want to buy a bag of sugared almonds”. So this is the end of today’s Spanish weekly words holiday’s edition. I hope you learned something interesting for you about San Isidro’s day and don’t forget to check the site, bye.
