Christmas is over, but we're staying in the Christmas atmosphere for a little while longer with Challenge #4!
I love Christmas, the lights, the family reunions, the food, but one of the things I usually don't like as much, is the Christmas music. (and I don't think I am the only one)
In Flemish we would say:
"Kerstliedjes, dat is niet echt mijn ding." Christmas songs, they're not really my thing.
Or if you've been forced to listen for over two hours:
"Ik word er zot van!" It drives me crazy!
Now, I do make an exception for the song below: "Een bakske vol met stro" by Flemish singer and comedian Urbanus. It's so witty and clever, it always makes me smile. The title means "A box full of straw", referring to baby Jezus' first crib and the song is full of tyically Flemish words and features.
And so here comes the Challenge!
1) Listen to the song on Youtube.
2) While listening, try to complete the exercise.
3) Take your time to read the corrections and explanations. There is a lot of info on the Flemish words and features in the song.
