Deck the halls…

Christmas is coming and it’s time to deck the halls… which means decorate! Have you put your Christmas tree up yet? Is your house covered in fairy lights? Today we bring you some Christmas decorations vocabulary.

Put the Christmas tree up / put up the Christmas tree = poner el árbol de Navidad

We’re going to put up the Christmas tree this weekend.

Baubles = bolas de Navidad

What pretty baubles! I love the colours!

Tinsel = guirnalda de oropel

The children put the tinsel on the Christmas tree.

Fairy lights = guirnalda de luces

We’ve put fairy lights in the windows – it looks so pretty.

Mistletoe = muérdago

Who would you like to kiss under the mistletoe?*

*La tradición es colgar muérdago y quienes paran debajo se tienen que besar.

A Christmas wreath = corona de Navidad

My neighbour made me a beautiful Christmas wreath to hang on my door.
