Today is April 1st! That means today it’s April Fools!!! What an special day!
Actually, not that special for latinamericans (and other countries too).
Y’know, we don’t celebrate what you people call “April Fools” here. Our day for pranks is on December 28, “Innocent’s Day”, which we celebrate because of a catholic tradition. It is said that three days after Baby Jesus was born (December 25) king Herodes sent his soldiers to kill every baby which had 2 years or less old, so he could get rid of Him.
All those babies/toddlers were, of course, innocent. And that’s why it has that name. You prank an innocent.
However, I just finished reading the origins of your celebration. And its origins are wayyy different than ours lol. But pretty interesting I must say.
In other news, a couple of hours earlier I finally watched Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. And, I need to say:
Tim Burton. What. The. Hell.
The first hour and 15 minutes were nice. Just like any other movie based on a book, it had its minor changes but the story was okay. It was when the bomb fell on Miss Peregrine’s house that everything changed. Like. For real. Everything. Nothing was like the book. Tim Burton spent 40-45 minutes in an ending that screwed up the next two books ;-;
Of course those are my thoughts. The ending made me feel pretty uncomfortable, and also the fact that Emma had Olive’s powers and hair and viceversa. But maybe it was fine for other people.
If you have read the books and also watched the movie, what are your thoughts?
And if not, how was your week anyway?
The sky is the start line.
