In English we don't have a term for a "long weekend". In Spanish you say you have a "puente", but we simply say we have a long weekend, a 3-day weekend or a 4-day weekend. We DON'T use the term "bridge." If you have worked very hard, maybe you have taken a long weekend recently.

It's Sunday, January 6th, 2008.

Last night the 3 kings arrived. They came from the East, bringing presents for all the good children in Spain.

And all the men and women merely players:
They have their exits and their entrances;
And one man in his time plays many parts...

Have you made any New Year's Resolutions?
It's already January 4th. Have you broken them yet?

Maybe it is a good idea NOT to tell your friends and family what your New Year's Resolutions are. Then when you break them, no one is going to chastise you!

What are your New Year's Resolutions this year? Are they the same ones as last year and the year before that?
