Fighting festival in Peru - level 2
An interesting festival takes place in Peru. It happens every year at the end of the year, and it lets people settle old disputes and start the new year in peace.
How, exactly? Two people fight each other. They don’t use weapons, but they can wear colourful face masks. Men, women and even children can take part in this.
Local authorities are present at the fights and they regulate them.
Difficult words: settle (to end), dispute (a problem/ an argument), authorities (people in position of power).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
Do you think that the festival is a good thing?
