Today is World Hello Day!

Hello!
Ni hao
Bonjour
Zdravstvuite
Guten Tag
Buon giorno

Princess and I have been looking up how to say 'hello" to
people around the world, or many of the people we might run
into at our library later. kidspace/hello/
I would like to encourage her to write some of them, but she has not wanted to
do any "copy work" lately.We also have some Thanksgiving crafts to finish today.

We are in charge of bringing the bread and rolls to my Aunt's house, so we will be baking tonight and tomorrow.
We are looking forward to watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and Miracle on 34th Street.
Oh, well that will probably be me tonight as I cook in the kitchen.....I hope all of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

I know how to say hello in Navajo, this is not the correct spelling, but it sounds like "Yah ah tey", to me.

And here is an easy greeting, Aloha.

Have you seen this?

Silly me. I thought Kid Space was different than the address I had!

Ah, I remember the good old days when life seemed to go at a slower pace (even though we got more achieved) and we learned foreign language phrases too ... ;-)

This is how to say hello in Macedonian : dobar den/zdravo

And in Maori: kia ora, which can mean many things other than just a greeting, it is an encouragement and an appreciation as well.

Happy Thanksgiving for tomorrow.

Knowledge which is acquired under compulsion has no hold on the mind. Therefore do not use compulsion, but let early education be a sort of amusement; you will then be better able to discover the child's natural bent .
