Chibi's ワン-Point English: "Golden Week"

Hi everyone,

It's hard to believe that Golden Week is already upon us. According to Alan (アランによると), Golden Week doesn't exist (存在していない) in the United States. However, he suggested (提案した) that I teach you some of the English words that correspond to (一致する) the holidays during this period.

April 29: (昭和の日) - Showa Day
May 3: (憲法記念日) - Constitution Memorial Day
May 4: (みどりの日) - Greenery Day
May 5: (こどもの日) - Children's Day

By the way, did you know that the managing director of Daiei Films came up with the name Golden Week back in 1951 because the movie 「自由学校」had higher ticket sales during this period than at any other time during the year?

Enjoy the holidays,


P.S. Please remember that E-Style will be closed from Showa Day (April 29) to Children's Day (May 5). Classes will resume on Thursday, May 6.
