Bond’s Day of the Dead – level 2
In Mexico, the Day of the Dead is a very important holiday. Millions of people celebrate. They traditionally set up altars with photographs of the dead, meet at family graves, drink, sing and talk to the dead.
This year was a little different. There was something new—it was a parade. It happened in Mexico City and the James Bond film “Spectre” inspired it. You could see skeletons, traditional dancers, and musical groups. People organised the parade to bring more tourists to Mexico, and it worked. People loved it!
Difficult words: altar (a block of stone for a ceremony), graves (where we place dead people), parade (when people walk through the streets and do something special).
