VIDEO| Speakin’ Japanese lesson: Santa is coming to town!

Hey, kids! Are you ready to celebrate Christmas? And are you ready to welcome Santa Claus? Be sure to hang a large stocking in your room, so that Santa Clause can put a nice Christmas gift inside. Then, before you go to your bed, make a wish to Santa to come to your home.. in Japanese!

Today's Japanese phrase is: “Santa-san, kite kudasai!" = Dear Santa, please come over to my home!

("Santa-san" = Mr. Santa Clause, "kite"= come, ".. kudasai" = please / give me)

I'm sure you'll see your stocking filled with many gift on Christmas morning! Stay safe and be a good boy or girl. I wish you a very Merry Christmas!
