As the chilly feeling becomes deeper and closer to your vacation mood, we have prepared 6 essential holiday expressions that will help start a great discussion with your newfound friends!Using these English expressions will give you a meaningful experience.

1.The more the merrier

Holiday calls for celebration and when we invite people we always find the right reason to make them say “yes” in joining us. You can always invite more friends and party together because ” the more (people there are),the merrier (the happier situation the becomes)”. The festive mood during the holiday makes us closer and happier! Remember~ the more, the merrier!
2.It’s the thought that counts
Meaning: used to say that good or kind intentions are the most important things, even if what you do or give to someone is not perfect:
Just imagine receiving a gift that you don’t really like. You could always consider the kind thoughts of the person who prepared the gift for you, and that makes everything special. Even if other people tease you for receiving a ridiculous gift, you can always say: “It’s the thought that counts”
3.Let’s make a toast!
Meaning: raising your glass to drink together with a group of people to honor someone or wish them happiness, good luck/health
In every party or gathering , there’s always a part wherein somebody has to say something for the group. Since we are about to end the year , it would be best to make a toast for 2019 for taking the challenge of studying English in the Philippines, in Pines International Academy!~
