It is unusual to find a

student with much time,

but free time they

always have - and they

love to enjoy it!

Many students spend

their time using their

mobiles phones and it is

a problem because there

are a lot of other things

to do.

Other teenagers prefer

to spend their free time

o n e x t r a s c h o o l

activities that they like or

that help them to have a

better future.

Some students enjoy

sports, for example;

The celebration of Halloween has

become something very traditional; not

only in the United States, but also in

many other places. This holiday has

been exported to countries worldwide.

However, we must remember that its

origin is not American.


More than 2000 years ago; on the night

of Samhain, the Celts turned off the lights

and hoped than death would not knock at

their doors.

The Celtic culture encompassed of the

British, Scandinavian, and Western

European Islands and this Samhain tradition

spread throughout all these territories,

becoming one of the most popular.

The Celts also celebrated the end of the

year and the end of the harvest, so a new

year began: “All Hallows Eve” - a name

that would later turn into halloween.

Every 31st of October, this date is a party

dedicated to two goddesses: Morgan, the

goddess of the death and the warm; and

Dagda, a secondary god related to



When halloween originated, it wasn’t

always fun and parties. That day was

associated with the dead, the souls in

sorrow, and the witches and spells;

inherited from the English Celts.

Like others festivals of new years, it is a

day where the dead lived again. The celts

made humans sacrifices and animals

sacrifices for the boss Samhaím - lord of


Today there are a lot of parties to

celebrate halloween.


Christmas is a festival that celebrates the

birth of Jesus. This day is celebrated on the

25th of December.

It is a day when families gather to eat and

give presents to others. Many families

decorate their homes with many lights,

Christmas trees, garlands, and figurines.

They also wear Christmas clothing.

A few days before, the government gives

the community vacations - two or three

weeks to celebrate and rest from work.

People usually meet with old friends and

eat together too.

There is a lot of traditional Christmas

food, for example, Christmas turkey.




This month we will talk about Battlefield

V e-sports. Let's start from the earliest:

ACBX (association of Spanish clans

battlefield Xbox) was formed several

months ago.

It was aimed at gathering and unifying

the Spanish battlefield community. At the

same time a clan was formed that would go

around the community, La Quinta Orden.

This clan would gain a lot of weight in a

short time earning a space in ACBX, where

not everyone could access.

Shortly after the first semi-official cup of

the battlefield community started, it had to

be canceled due to technical complications

of the service and the abandonment by

most of the participating clans.

This was a serious blow throughout the


Even with low spirits, the Fifth Order

would not give up; and together with clans

brothers they would create another

tournament called Wallmart Spain.

Alejandro Lopez

At the end of this tournament, the

participating clans formed another

battlefield community with the same

intention as ACBX.

However, being excluded from all the

toxicity of the Spanish community, the BCC

(Battlefield Competitive Community) took

advantage of the inclusion of private

servers, and so, the competitive revolution

has arrived.

William Shakespeare

Shakespeare was born in Strantford, United

Kingdom in 1564 and died on the 23rd of

April 1616. He is considered to be the best

playwright of all times.

Many believe that the cause of his death

was drinking. However; there is not enough

data to make this information true.

He was the third of eight children; and the

son of John Shakespeare - a wealthy

merchant and local politician and Mary Arden

- whose family had many problems because

their religion.

A few things we know about

Shakespeare’s childhood:

He left the school at an early age and went on

to study latin, history and greek. He became a

playwright when he moved to London, where

he became famous quickly in his job at the

company; Chaberlain's Men. He lived in

England from 1590 to 1613.
