What pretty!
When I have enter in the Chari's blog and I have see that title, it gave me a good impression I decided enter in the games, and then, I read the text. Now, I know a pretty celebration in Ireland, the USA,... When I have read the information of this celebration, I think that is very natural and calm. In my opinion, safe that here, the people don't fight to get nothing before.

Sorry I didn't answer before, but my back hurt badly when I spent some time in front of the computer. Sure I'll correct your mistakes when needed, but remember, a language is used for communication. As long as you can communicate using English it's OK at this stage, don't worry too much about correctness for the time being!Keep working!
