Memorial Day
is a federal holiday observed on the last Monday of May in the USA.

Formerly known as Decoration Day, it commemorates U.S. men and women who died while in the military service.
First enacted to honour Union soldiers of the American Civil War (it is celebrated near the day of reunification after the Civil War), it was expanded after World War I to include American casualties of any war or military action.

Memorial Day
is an important reminder of those who died in the service of their country.

The gravestones at Alington National Cemetery are graced by U.S. flags on Memorial Day.

Memorial Day is a holiday and a three-day weekend that marks the beginning of summer.

It is Easter Sunday today !
Easter celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Children eat chocolate eggs and bunnies.
74% of kids eat chocolate bunnies ears first ! (ie. Enjoy English in 6è page 80)

For those who believe in God, those who are Catholics or Protestants, last Friday was a special day.
In France, it is "vendredi Saint" but what is it called in English ?

Well done Grégory, again !  Is was Good Friday.

This is a special message to all Year 10 pupils :

I am not pleased with the test you did on Monday.  Your results are really bad.

So you will do it again on Friday, April 3rd instead of watching Dances with Wolves as planned.

So be prepared this time !...

April Fools' Day
or All Fools' Day, is not a real holiday but an important day celebrated in France, England, Scotland, Ireland,  Australia, New Zealand,and the United States on April 1st.

It's also celebrated in Belgium, Denmark, Italy, Switzerland, Russia (“Dyen' Doeraka,” literally, “dunce’s day”) and even in Japan.

But is it celebrated in Spain ? Go and ask Mme Sanzey, our teacher of Spanish.
Is it celebrated in Germany ? Ask Mme Colombo, our teacher of German.

The day is marked by hoaxes and practical jokes on friends, family members and pupils (and teachers !). You can send them on fool's errands too.

In some countries, the jokes only last until 12 o'clock: someone who plays a trick after 12 is called an "April Fool".
In Ireland, France, and the USA, the jokes last all day.

Where did April Fool's Day originate ?
No one really knows, but it may have started in France in 1582. Before that year, the New Year was celebrated on April 1st.
Then, in 1582, Pope Gregory introduced a new calendar for the Christian world, and the new year fell on January 1st. News spread slowly in those days because there was no television and no radio.
Some people didn't hear of the change, some chose to ignore it and others simply forgot. So they continued to celebrate the New Year on April 1st and were considered fools.

In Scotland, April Fools' Day lasts 48 hours. Day 1 is called “Gowk” or “Cuckoo Day whereas Day 2 is known as Taily Day and pranks involving the posterior are played.

This is a short lesson about  April Fool's day. You will learn new expressions related to joking.

What are the 4 expressions that you've just heard and which mean "I'm not serious". ?

DST or summer time began at 2:00 AM last night.

DST is the convention of advancing clocks so that afternoons have more daylight and mornings have less.
Typically clocks are adjusted forward one hour near the start of spring and are adjusted backward in autumn.
Modern DST was first proposed in 1907 by an English builder whose name was William Willett.

Many countries have used it since then.


     DST used      DST no longer used      DST never used

In the European Union, Summer Time begins and ends at 1:00 a.m. Universal Time (Greenwich Mean Time). It begins the last Sunday in March and ends the last Sunday in October. In the EU, all time zones change at the same moment.

Most of the United States begins Daylight Saving Time at 2:00 a.m. on the second Sunday in March and reverts to standard time on the first Sunday in November. In the U.S., each time zone switches at a different time.

So don't forget to set your alarm clock for tomorrow !

By the way, do we set the clocks back or forward ?
