Merry Christmas!
Our family had a Christmas feast such as pizza, chicken, sushi, cake, and so on last night already.
My son used to write a letter to Santa about a present which he wanted, but this year, he was reluctant to do that. I rushed him to write a letter.
"You should write a letter to Santa soon, because it takes a week to receive it where Santa lives in Finland."
My son was laughing to hear that, and said "He lives here!".

Merry Christmas!
Our family had an early Christmas feast with such foods as pizza, chicken, sushi, and cake.
My son used to write letters to Santa about presents he had wanted, but this year, he was reluctant to do that. I urged him to write this year's letter quickly.
"You should write a letter to Santa soon, because it takes a week to receive it where Santa lives in Finland."
Upon hearing my statement, my son burst out laughing and said, "He lives here!".

It took a long time, but it turned out nice. It keeps about a month, so we may eat it a little at a time.

Re: English Corrections

Hi, Shiroi Tora.

Thank you very much for the corrections.

I have a question.
What is the difference between 'rush someone' and 'urge someone'?
Please tell me.

Answer to Sakae's question

Sakae's Question:

I have a question.
What is the difference between 'rush someone' and 'urge someone'?

-------------------------

My Reply:

To 'rush' is to act. To 'urge' is to compel someone to act. Your son hurried to write his letter because of your urging. Also, the word 'rush' carries the meaning of being careless in action, of hurrying so much as to being prone to making mistakes.

While one may hurry or rush someone, it usually only applies where one may actually, physically, push someone through action, to complete an action. It usually applies to a parent hurrying an infant or toddler...or someone such as a hospital attendant hurrying a wheelchair bound person...etc.

Where someone has control over his action, he must be urged into hurrying his own actions. He may feel rushed because of your urging...he may rush his actions as a result of your urging...you may attempt to have him rush or hurry through your urging...but if you rush someone...you are physically running towards him. :)


Re: Answer to Sakae's question

Hi, Shiroi Tora.

Your explanation was better than my dictionary.
Thank you so much.

That panettone looks great! Much better than those that we can buy in supermarkets here. Love the sunflower picture too. Hope you had a great day.

Re: No title

Hi, Always visiting.

I'm very happy to hear that. Thank you!
I've never tried real panettone. I'd like to do one in Italy. And also, I'd like to try German stollen in Germany.
