One extra holiday for the town fiesta?
August 21, 2012 1:25am CST
This week, school is off for 3 straight days. Monday and Tuesday were declared nationwide as non-working holidays. I am surprised that my daughter's notebook had a note notifying us that Wednesday is also off, due to the fiesta of our town. It's the first time I've heard and experienced a holiday due to a town feast. When I was still schooling, in another city, we never had such cause for a holiday.

Wow, I guess your kid is so lucky to have another day of school-free. More time for school work, and more time for games and stuff. I remember when I was a kid, I can only last 3 days of vacation from school. After that, I get too restless being cooped up inside our house that I begin getting into my mom's nerves.
