vocabulary: fin di aña

E temporada di fin di aña, or just fin di aña, refers to the festive final weeks of the year when people are taking vacations, having family gatherings, decorating for Christmas and then celebrating it and New Year’s.

The word Pasku alone generally refers to Christmas. Say Pasku di Nasementu to distinguish Christmas from Pasku di Resurekshon (Easter). Palu di Pasku is a Christmas tree.

Last year there was a brief news article on loopabc.com about an Australian breaking the world’s record for the largest number of lights on a Christmas tree. The headline is: Oustraliano ta kibra rekòrt di mas tantu lus den palu di Pasku. You can read the article here.
