Thanks for the information of Bonfire Night.

Hello teacher.
We have read the website and we checked our understanding. We had a 100% in both of them!
The special days we celebrate with bonfires and fireworks are: the fair of "San Lucas", the New Year Eve, the Three Wise Men eve, Virgen de la Capilla's day, at Easter, and more that we don't remember.
We like them because they are beautiful but the sparks scare us. Here, the children don't usually buy the bonfires because it's not very common in Jaén.
That's all :)

We celebrated Christmas with the family and in the new year we used fireworks to celebrate this party. My family owns a untryside house near Jaén. We go to his house to celebrate New Year. We always celebrate this day and we enjoy having a party. Our gradparents buy many sweets for the party and our grandmother makes a cake for lunch.
After that, all the family eats a delicious chicken, cooked by my uncle.
We love celebrating with the family every year.

Hi teacher, we are Anabel Merino and Guillermo Macías, of 3ºA.
We think we use fireworks in our city to celebrate San Lucas' fair end, and in New Year. In carnaval there are fireworks too.
In our country we have fireworks in Christmas and in each city there are them for the different customs celebrated there.
We have enjoyed doing this activity, because is interesting to learn about other countries' customs.

Hi teacher! We are Magdalena Arroyo and Cristina Anguita from 3ºA.
In our contry we celebrate many special days, for example, in Halloween and New Year we explode firecrackers and in Carnaval or San Lucas the town hall decides to throw fireworks. Every year some people go to the Boulevard to see the fireworks. This year we have enjoyed them.

hello, we are Paula Martínez and Clara Colmenero from 3ºESO A.
We have read the article about Bonfire Night. This traditional event is very similar to ours. Firstly, we make a Guy which is burnt in a bonfire and it is dressed with old clothes and it seems like a scarecrow. In this night we burn old things like furniture to start new year.
We eat baked potatoes, toffee apples and popcorns, too. In this day we have a ring and we sing "melenchones".
It's a very beautiful day called San Antón's day.
Thanks for your atention.
