The holiday season is a great time to build meaningful connections and find new ways to communicate. This year, we’d love to help the hearing population learn to spread a little Holiday Cheer to their deaf friends, family members, customers, or just complete strangers!
In the accompanying Video Blog, Tiffany will demonstrate the following holiday words and phrases in ASL:
Peace on Earth
A gift for you
Happy New Year
Festival of Lights
Sign language is fun for the whole family to learn— children especially love exploring this 3D language. Practicing ASL together can be a fun activity during holiday breaks or gatherings; and when you take it out in the world, is the gift that keeps on giving.
Now go make someone smile! Happy Holidays and best wishes for an incredible 2018 from the LC Interpreting Services family to yours.
The holiday season is a time for family and friends. It is a time to bring joy to the people you know, and spread cheer to the strangers you meet. There are an estimated half million people in the United States who use American Sign Language as their primary form of communication. This year, let’s work on bridging the communication gap between the deaf and hearing worlds!
Here are the signs for 10 popular holiday words and phrases:
Learning even a few holiday signs can bring a smile to a deaf individual’s face. A mall Santa who uses ASL can make a deaf child light up with happiness. Your deaf customers are sure to appreciate it when you wish them a happy holiday in their own language. Whatever you believe in, and whatever culture you are from, I hope your holiday season is filled with love and light!
