Santa's Christmas dinner

 

Hello, and welcome to the secret puzzle! Good job you found it now because after the 12th January 2016, it will be gone. Goodbye. Do widzenia. Adiós. Au Revoir. Auf Wiedersehen.  Arrivederci. Ha det. Прощай. さようなら. 再見. And so on.

Except it's still here.

Unfortunately, our miserable student, dressed up rather miserably as Father Christmas, is so used to his meat and two veg for his Christmas dinner that he thinks everybody must be so unhappy at Christmas time!

So he decided to write a blog about it.

Fortunately, he didn't publish it, but one of his student friends managed to get hold of a copy and was rather surprised at all the mistakes.

Before you tell him what you think of his opinions, can you correct his blog? (Scroll down for the answers.)

I can not understand what is so lovely of Christmas dinner. 

 

Is it really so nice to eat fish contains more bones than meat? What is so really delicious about betroot soup with bits in soggy pastry in it?  Then there is mushroom soup (another soup). Herring. Sour cabbage. Wheet grains. Dryed fruit drinks. Are you geting excited yet?

 

Actually, I do like the gingerbred and the popy seed cake. 

 

I'm sorry. I really love a Christmas diner of turkey, roast potatos, vegtables, and so on, pulling crackers and wherering funny hats. What does not get ate then gets served again on evening or the next day.  Do you really want carp, herring and sour cabbage agen the next day?

 

To be fair I can't say evrything of better elsewhere. 

 

In the United Kindom shoping starts on September. We eat FAR too much. No white Christmusses. Rubbish music by winner of the X Factor. Going shoping for sales on the 26th December. Writing lots of Christmas cards and spending lots sending them. Eating Brussel sprouts with Christmas dinner becoz, like the carp in Central Europe, nobody like them but it traditional.

 

Believe me Central Europe, your Christmas is not all that bad.

The corrections are in red.

Oh, here's the answer to the Codeword quote puzzle: "English is like a hungry monster in reverse: it is feeding on, absorbing, and then excreting all these new words and expressions in order to fatten itself up."

And to crossword quote 2: "Realistically, English is a universal language: it's the number one language for music and for communicating with the rest of the world." -Enrique Inglesias, Spanish musician
