Bond’s Day of the Dead – level 1

Bond’s Day of the Dead – level 1

03-11-2016 15:00

Day of the Dead is a holiday. It is from Mexico. Millions of people celebrate the holiday. They visit graves. They drink and sing to the dead.

This year is a little different. There is an event in Mexico City. It is a parade. People walk in the streets. They sing, dance and have fun. They wear costumes. Many people watch the parade.

The parade is new to Mexico. It is James Bond’s parade. Why? There is a parade in the film “Spectre”. The two parades are very similar.

Difficult words: grave (where we bury dead people), parade (when people walk through the streets and do something special), costume (clothes which make you look like something else).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
