Madagascar

 


 


 


 


         


     


      



 


 


Madagascar is a very festive place. Even though its hot in Madagascar around chritmas they still have the commen  decorations of holly and bells. Most people only exchange small presents here. On Christmas their curch hours last untill 5 in the morning. On Christmas day everyone greets each other ( even stragers). In Madagascar Santa Clause is called Dadabe Noely. The aficial languge is Malagasy. Merry Chritmas and happy New Year in Malagasy is Krismasy sambatra sy Taona vaovao tonga lafatra ho anao'.Poinsettias also grow as large outdoor shrubs in Madagascar and don't just flower at Christmas! They are also the national emblem of Madagascar.A special Christmas food in Madagascar are fresh lychees, which are bought from shops and street sellers, fresh from the trees. The streets get covered in lychee skins!Madagascan families like to eat Christmas dinner together in large groups and dress up in the best (or new) clothes. The meal is normally Chicken or Pork with rice followed by a special cake. Some rich people go to restaurants for Christmas dinner, but most people stay at home with their families. I wish that we could have a warm chritmas. I think the kids there would like to see snow.  Her is a famous cristmas carol.             


Avia ry mino! Hifaly sy hihoby,

Avia, avia hankany Betlehema;

Teraka Jeso tompon'ny anjely

Avia hitsaoka Azy (x3) izay Tomponao


Tompon'ny Tompo, Andriananahary.

Nefa mba zana-behivavy koa

Zanak'I Maria, nefa Zanahary;

Avia hitsaoka Azy (x3) izay Tomponao


Derao ry anjely, mohobia mafy,

Ry mponina an-danitra ao ambony ao

Dera sy laza atolory Azy

Avia hitsaoka Azy (x3) izayTomponao


He arahaba, tonga aty an-tany

Ny Tompo Mpamonjy sy Mpanjaka koa,

Tenin'ny Rainy voatafy nofo,

Avia hitsaoka Azy (x3) izay Tomponao!


 


This poem is very popular with all Malagasy Children:


Krismasy re no tonga (Christmas is coming)

Falifaly ny kilonga (Children are happy)

Krismasy tena fety (Chrismas is really a feast)

Ho an'ny kely sy vaventy (For littles and for adults)
