Be careful!!


December 28, Day of the Innocents  December 28 marks a day of celebration exclusively Spanish called the Day of the Innocents.  Although the roots of this day are bloody, in modern times, the customs practiced on this day are very jovial and fun.   The anniversary of the murder of many children committed by Herod in Judea, . On this day, people play inocentadas (pranks or practical jokes) on friends and relatives: people make jokes hoping that the victim believes the false thing. When people get caught, the joker says: "Inocente, inocente!" ("Innocent, innocent!"). The newspapers and other media are in on the joke as well, reporting false news for the people to figure out.


Ask your parents!
Were they very naughty preparing and making jokes?

Imagine
                             http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wFHUxCudN6w&feature=related

Imagine there's no Heaven 
It's easy if you try 
And no Hell below us 
Above us only sky 

Imagine all the people 
Living for today 
Imagine there's no country 
It isn't hard to do 

Nothing to kill or die for 
And no religion too 
Imagine all the people 
Living life in peace 

You may say I'm a dreamer 
But I'm not the only one 
Maybe someday you will join us 
And the world will be as one 

Imagine no posessions 
I wonder if you can 
No need for greed or hunger 
Or Brotherhood of Man 

Imagine all the people 
Sharing all the world 
You may say that I'm a dreamer 
But I'm not the only one 

And maybe someday you will join us 
And the world will be as one 

You may say that I'm a dreamer 
But I'm not the only one 
Maybe someday you will join us 
And the world will be as one...
