what is diosito, is that slang for something?
I heard a Mexican friend say this word and i was a little lost. What is diosito? Is it slang for something?
I was speaking with an Ecuadorian family today. The two year old girl has been sick recently and she was treated with antibiotics. She got better right before Christmas. When the parents asked her who cured her, they were thinking she would tell them that the doctor had. She told them that she had been cured by "Diosito" meaning the Baby Jesus who was about to arrive on Christmas.
It is a term of endearment when we use the diminutive of God.
We don't have "lesser" Gods.
Diosito can is the diminutive of Dios (god), but can also be used as an expression of exacerbation ex. ¡Diosito! ¿Por qué no limpiaste el baño?
it is Godlet, minor God, as in starlet, minor star..
No really, it's as Chileno says, a more friendly way of saying God.
Diosito is diminutive for Dios (Dios = God) uhm... there's no necesary say Diosito to Baby Jesus, is just a way to say Dios... we used it too as you when you say "OH MY GOD" but we say "Ay Diosito!"
You might think about it in terms of the way you would use something like "abuelita", an endearment, not necessarily "small or minor". Perhaps "dear God"?
