I´m Teacher Joseph.
Today in the English speaking world there is a celebration called "Ash wednesday". I have made a videoclip to explain what it is. I have around 85 videoclips on my site to help you with your English. They are all free.
You can see my videoclip about Ash Wednesday here. www.dailymotion.com/englishwithjoseph
In Poland I remember Ash Wednesday as a very sad church celebration. They will put some ash on your head, which was something different. Remember about dying at the end. Not a happy thought. Also my family use to fast that day, strick fast they call it.
No I didnt have pancakes, but as I recall, they are delicious
Hey Joseph! I like your video! :)
Did you have some pancakes yesterday? We were racing them here in London.
