Did you know today, November 2nd, is Dia de los Muertos? It's a Spanish holiday and it translates to The Day of the Dead. Bonnie's Spanish teacher's uncle died so the teacher was gone today to attend his funeral, just like you ... Even though in China, technically, it's the 3rd of November.
We celebrated this holiday in the European Club. Spanish people are more optimistic about death than other people. The Day of the Dead is to respect deceased relatives and to be happy and remember the good things about them and the things they liked to do (good memories about the deceased person). Please don't feel too bad or depressed about A Gong... He's in a better place now.
注: Dia de los Muertos - 西班牙語, "死者日"。西班牙人在11月2日, 舉行慶祝、祭奠死者的活動, 稱為"死者日"。
A Gong - "外公" 的上海話諧音。兩个女儿中文(Mandarin) 講不好, 是我的責任, 上海話講多了。
