Day of the Dead

Effortless English Hoge
По нисходящей: Короткий рассказ, министори, министори vocabulary (грамматика)

I arrive in Guatemala on, November 1st. I’m

curious about this holiday, so I go to the cemetery to see what’s happening. What I find is
quite interesting. The atmosphereis
like a party. There are people
everywhere. Families are sitting around the
graves of their dead
ancestors . They clean the gravesgraves and add fresh flowers. I walk through the
cemetery and
admire the beautyofall the
colorful flowers. There is also 
color in the sky , because many kids are flying
kites. Some families are having a picnic next to the graves. They eat, drink, and
chat together. People 
laugh and smile. In the Unites States, cemeteries are always
somber. We 
certainly never have festivals or parties next to graves. We don’t laugh or play music or fly kites in cemeteries
either. I find that I prefer the Guatemalan
approach .
I like the way they remember and 
celebrate those who have
passed away . I like that they 
acknowledge death,  
instead of  
denying it the way Americans do. I like that there is life,   as well as death, in their cemeteries. Guatemalans call it “The Day of the Dead”, but it is also a day to 
appreciate life.
