International Book and Copyright Day

On 23rd April, we celebrate World Book and Copyright Day. Its origins are found in Spain because Cervantes died on this date, as well as Shakespeare and other writers. Later, the UNESCO declared 23rd April as a day to promote reading and publishing. In the UK, World Book Day is celebrated in early March, so that it doesn't clash with Easter holidays and students can properly celebrate it at school with their Language and Literature teachers. Here I'm suggesting you some interesting websites where you can read and create stories online, or even download books legally. So enjoyable!

Happy Saint Patrick's Day

Saint Patrick's Day is on March 17th and it's a national holiday in the Republic of Ireland. St Patrick brought Christianity to Ireland and is the patron of this country. He used a kind of clover called shamrock to explain that The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit are all the same. There are more legends about him, one of them tells us he drove snakes out of Ireland. As in Ireland, St Patrick's Day is celebrated in other countries, people with Irish heritage proclaim their origins and dress themselves in green. Dublin's parade is amazing but the largest takes place in New York and it lasts for hours.
