Easter Break

Good afternoon, everyone!
Here in Costa Rica this week is a holiday, so I’m only going to do one blog post this week instead of three. The holiday is called semana santa in Spanish, and many people (like me!) don’t have to go work or school. The dates for this holiday change every year, but it’s always in the week before Easter Sunday.
If you’d like to read a bit more, I put up a post last year about this holiday, along with an explanation of why we don’t usually call it “holy week” in English, unless we’re talking specifically about church functions. You can read the two posts here and here.
Additionally, this post explains how to use words like “holiday” and “vacation,” and includes a dialogue example. Click here to read more.
If you are in Costa Rica, enjoy the holiday if you have a vacation. If not, then have a good week, and Sitzman ABC will be back next Monday. Thanks for reading!
