So cool to read about everyone's home tradition they miss the most! I'm from England but I've been living in the States for five years and the thing I miss the most is Bonfire Night on November 5th.
The best thing about Bonfire Night is the fireworks, oh, and the bonfires! … and the history behind it. Basically, Guy Fawkes and his friends tried to blow up the Houses of Parliament and kill King James I. They nearly did it too – they hired a room under the House of Parliament and filled it with explosives. But someone told the royal palace. The authorities found Guy Fawkes in the room guarding the explosives, and he was sentenced to torture and death.
So it's a tradition that celebrates the fact that the king survived. It also means people don't forget what happens if you plot against your country. There's a kind of poem about it that starts 'Remember, remember the fifth of November, gunpowder, treason and plot.' That's why we build a 'guy' – a life-size model of Guy Fawkes – and burn it on the bonfire. Pretty dark and horrible when you think about it!
- It's nice to start by saying something that shows you have read other people's posts.
- In a class forum you can be quite informal.
- In informal writing you can sometimes miss out the beginning of a phrase:
So cool to read about everyone's home tradition ...
- Remember, in a forum you are part of a long conversation with a lot of other people so they might ask you questions.
So good to read about other's home tradition! Unfortunately, I'm not living in my country Palestine, but I can recall some traditions from what I read and heard. In Palestine, the birth of a baby is a joyful and happy occasion, family members and friends start to visit the new parents to offer them love, and best wishes. And a traditional dish, mughli, - a pudding made of semolina flour, sugar and cinnamon, topped with fresh nuts - is served, along with coffee or tea.
Hi there , this is Ahmed and I am here to tell you about the most interesting tradition about my country Egypt. Every spring we have a celebrity we called it here "ShamElnseem" . We start our day by preparing breakfast plates from coloured boiled eggs with white cheese and bread then getting ready to go to the gardens to enjoy the fresh air and the beautiful colours of the flowers. The launch comes with only fish and onion. The Day ended up with some beautiful songs and a movie.
Really cool to learn about other countries' traditions; if I'm honest I've never really tried to search for traditions outside Mexico, but most of the ones I've read so far sound really interesting and fun!
My favorite mexican tradition is probably the Day of the Death, have you seen the film Coco?, well, it really shows up the idea of the tradition. It's celebrated in November to commemorate our loved ones who already passed away. We set up an altar with their favorite drinks and food, and we create a Cempasuchil (a mexican flower) path as a way to show them we remember them and that we still celebrate their lives.
Besides the meaning of the celebration, my favorite part of it must be the pan de muerto, it's amazing! have you tried it?

It's amazing to read about everyone's home traditions! Here on Brazil we have the june party in June 24th, we celebrate the birth of John Baptist (or saint John) of the catholic church. Basically, we got the tradition to build up a bonfire in the frontwards of our houses to bake corns and play with fireworks, yeah... Quite funny, right? We also wear straw hats and plaid shirts. Even I'm not a religious person, it's so cool and funny to celebrate this date with my family and friends.
