Yogi Christmas / Yogi Navidad

La versión español está después de la versión inglés.

There’s an old American expression credited to a man named Yogi Berra, baseball player and, later, manager and coach of the New York Yankees. Yogi was famous for his malapropisms. One famous quote:

“It isn’t over till it’s over.”

Knowing that to be true, we went to Málaga to see the annual Christmas light show on Calle Marqués de Larios. I usually watch the show from the south end of the pedestrian mall. This year I moved us to the north end at Plaza de la Constitución. As Yogi also said:

“If you don’t know where you’re going, you might not get there.


Hay una vieja expresión estadounidense acreditada a un hombre llamado Yogi Berra, jugador de béisbol y, más tarde gerente y entrenador de los Yankees de Nueva York. Yogi era famoso por sus malapropismos. Una cita famosa:

“No se termina hasta que se termina”.

Sabiendo que para ser verdad, fuimos a Málaga para ver el espectáculo anual de luces de Navidad en la calle Marqués de Larios. Suelo ver el espectáculo desde el extremo sur del centro comercial peatonal. Este año me mudé al extremo norte, en la Plaza de la Constitución. Como dijo Yogi:

“Si no sabes a dónde vas, es posible que no llegues allí.

The light cathedral’s dome. / La cúpula de la catedral de luz.
Plaza de la Constitución; we positioned ourselves to the right of the tree to watch the show. / Plaza de la Constitución; nos posicionamos a la derecha del árbol para ver el espectáculo.
Next to the tree on the plaza. / Junto al árbol en la plaza.
Happy 2019! / ¡Feliz 2019!

      Well, I grew up a Yankees fan. Now I really don’t give two craps which multi-millionaires play or win. Besides, baseball is 90 percent mental; the other half is physical.

  1. If you don’t know where you are going, any road will take you there. What a wonderful place we are.

    1. Debra:
      I loaded two more videos to Youtube. They play three songs in all. Thanks re the selfie. We both really like it.

  2. Between the light show I featured and now yours….there are some entertaining things to see. I saw this one on instagram. I think it’s so cool. And you two handsome things.

    1. Mistress Maddie:
      Yours was especially amazing. Made me want to go back to Sevilla to see theirs, which is done in the same style (and technology). Incredible.

  3. You surprised me. When I first saw the title in my sidebar, I thought it was either going to be about transcendental meditation or a cartoon bear.

      I like to have shots of us to commemorate some of these vents. Have a few New Year’s shots since coming to Spain and I love them.

  4. Fantastic light show!
    GO YANKIES GO! (even though I am a Red Sox fan)
    Great photo of you guys!

    1. Jim:
      The only reason I’ll back the Yankees is because their The Kid Brother’s team. (The Mets were his team after winning in 1969… until they started losing some years back! Fair weather friend.)

    1. Wilma:
      Aw… and I still see fireworks when I look at Jerry… and not just when he snores.

Please share your thoughts...
