COMMENTS
Becky: In response, 소라 (Sora)'s friends leave some comments.
Becky: Her nephew, 만세 (Manse), uses an expression meaning - "Couples everywhere!" As a note, Many Korean people celebrate Christmas as couples, like Valentine's Day. It’s not the traditional family-oriented Christmas like in western countries.

Becky: Use this expression if you are feeling bitter.
Becky: Her neighbor, 민희 (Min-Hee), uses an expression meaning - "I heard that it's going to be a white Christmas tonight."
Jaehwi: (SLOW) 오늘밤은 화이트 크리스마스래. (oneulbameun hwaiteu keuriseumaseurae.) (REGULAR) 오늘밤은 화이트 크리스마스래. (oneulbameun hwaiteu keuriseumaseurae.)
[Pause]
Jaehwi: 오늘밤은 화이트 크리스마스래. (oneulbameun hwaiteu keuriseumaseurae.)
Becky: You can say this to share a little extra information about the day.
Becky: Her supervisor, 공유 (Gong-yu), uses an expression meaning - "Working on Christmas Day as usual..."
Jaehwi: (SLOW) 크리스마스에도 일하는 중.. (keuriseumaseu-edo ilhaneun jung..) (REGULAR) 크리스마스에도 일하는 중.. (keuriseumaseu-edo ilhaneun jung..)
[Pause]
Jaehwi: 크리스마스에도 일하는 중.. (keuriseumaseu-edo ilhaneun jung..)
Becky: You can say something like this if you’re working through or not enjoying the holiday.
Becky: Her husband's high school friend, 하나 (Hana), uses an expression meaning - "What Christmas gift did you get?"
Jaehwi: (SLOW) 크리스마스 선물은 뭐 받았어? (keurisemaseu seonmureun mwo badasseo?) (REGULAR) 크리스마스 선물은 뭐 받았어? (keurisemaseu seonmureun mwo badasseo?)

Jaehwi: 크리스마스 선물은 뭐 받았어? (keurisemaseu seonmureun mwo badasseo?)
Becky: Use this expression to find out how the poster spent the day. Christmas gifts are common between a couple or even friends.

Outro

Becky: Okay, that's all for this lesson. If a friend posted something about Christmas greetings, which phrase would you use? Leave us a comment letting us know. And we'll see you next time!
Jaehwi: 다음 시간에 만나요. (daeum shigane mannayo.)

Hi Tom,


Thanks for posting. '~래(요)' is the colloquial version of '라고 해(요)', and is use when the speaker is quoting someone/something. So the sample sentence would be 'They say that tonight will be a white Christmas'.


Hope this was of help. Please let us know if you have any other inquiries.


Best,

Lyn
