Festive Time

About this episode:

Welcome to "You Don't Say?!" the podcast for English learners about life around the world, cultural differences and things that have surprised us on our travels. As autumn approaches there are so many festivals and celebrations happening in different parts of the world. Today we’re sharing our experiences of some of our favourite ones.

Some topics we’ll discuss:

  • Festivals for people that just love food
  • Festivals that revolve around fire and fireworks
  • The strange reason behind one UK celebration
  • Celebrating festivals from cultures that aren’t our own...and much more
