Typical Afternoon / Tarde Típica

With another year of school completed and hopefully tucked away in our minds, the celebration of summer begins at La Casa de mi Padre. A tradition of celebration in El Salvador is what we call “Tarde Tipica”, which means “Typical Afternoon” in English. It is an afternoon of coming together and munching on a potluck of typical foods. From typical drinks to typical food dishes and even candies and desserts, it is a buffet. Our staff planned such a celebration this past week to celebrate the accomplishments of our children during the school year. Each staff member contributed to the occasion by bringing a special dish or drink, along with handmade decorations, to create an atmosphere of celebration. Take a peak inside this typical event!

Al final de otro año escolar, comenzamos a disfrutar de las vacaciones en La Casa. Una de las celebraciones tradicionales es la “Tarde Típica”. La celebración consiste en reunirse y, con el aporte de cada uno, disfrutar de una variedad de platillos típicos, una variada gama de sabores, desde bebidas hasta dulces y caramelos típicos, es un buffet. El personal de La Casa se preparó la semana pasada para poder celebrar los logros de los chicos al finalizar su año escolar. Cada uno de los miembros del personal se encargó de aportar algo, una bebida o comida, al igual todos elaboraron la decoración para hacer de esta tarde algo especial. Mira esta celebración!!
