Let’s honor literature this April!


Homenaje lectura


This month in Plaza Santillana, we pay homage to all the richness that literature brings to our lives and the lives of our students. During April in communities around the world, people celebrate various facets of literature and books: International Book Day, International Children’s Book Day, the days we commemorate Miguel de Cervantes and William Shakespeare, and others. If literature is celebrated so much in both Spanish-speaking countries and in English-speaking ones, then we here at Plaza Santillana have DOUBLE the celebration going on! We celebrate all things Hispanic, and also value the English-language literature that so enriches our lives as well.

Carnaval de Oruro

Después de un mes recorriendo América Latina, el Caribe y España a través de sus fiestas encontramos que estas celebraciones tienen muchos elementos en común. Sin embargo, lo más importante es que forman parte de la tradición cultural y folclórica de cada región. La mayoría de estas festividades tienen lugar días o semanas antes de la Cuaresma judeo-cristiana, por lo cual, todas están ligadas a la tradición religiosa heredada de los españoles. Incorporando ceremonias, vestuarios o imágenes que representa las culturas prehispánicas y africanas, los carnavales y celebraciones son una expresión creativa y divertida del entusiasmo popular.  En todas ellas las personas desbordan alegría, recorren las calles y bailan en las esquinas compartiendo sus risas y sus experiencias personales. No pueden faltar los disfraces, las máscaras, las banderas, los coloridos estandartes, la música y los fuegos artificiales.
