Today is BOXING DAY. In Britain, Boxing Day is celebrated on the following day after Christmas Day, that´s it on the 26th of December. It´s a public holiday, so people don´t work today. Traditionally it was the day to open the box containing gifts to give to poor people. And the tradition still continues today. At schools, for instance, pupils put presents in Xmas Boxes to be sent to poorer countries.
But Boxing Day is also the day when families get together: they watch sports, play boardgames or go on walks in the countryside.
And it is also the day when the New Year sales start!
Happy Boxing Day!

The Christmas tree remains in Trafalgar Square until just before the Twelfth Night of Christmas, when it is taken down for recycling. The tree is chipped and composted, to make mulch.

Today all the countries around the world celebrate the International Children´s Rights Day. On the 20th of November of 1989 the Convention on Children´s Rights was celebrated.
The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child is an international human rights treaty
about young people. The convention is made up of 41 articles about the rights of young people, one article about public awareness and education, and 12 articles on how to monitor, ratify, and enforce the convention. The Convention on the Rights of the Child has been adopted by more countries than any other international human rights treaty. By January 1996, 187 countries had signed or ratified it.
Have a look at these two videos. On the first one, an Irish 7-year-old boy named Adam tells us about Children´s rights. The second one is a brief resume of the main rights. Pay attention. They are your rights...

- Many hotels have no room number 13
- Many buildings do not have a 13th floor.
- Many airplanes do not have a 13th row.
- Many ships will not start a voyage on the 13th, particularly, Friday the 13th.
But this is only superstition. And what about you? Are you superstitious? Well, have a look at this cartoon and think carefully about it. Good luck!

Today, November 9th, is the 20th anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Wall. The Wall was built in 1961 during the Cold War and it divided the city of Berlin in two parts. And for nearly 30 years nobody could crossed it. In 1989 it was breached. Congratulations Germany!
