Product Description
In Spain, April 23rd is a romantic and literary holiday for not only those in love, but those who love books. The day is celebrated with gifts of roses and books, and is an especially big event in Barcelona. The day marks the anniversary of the deaths of Cervantes and Shakespeare, thus making this alternative to Valentine's Day a celebration of both literature and love.

This reading in Spanish explains the history of St. Jordi's Day and how it is celebrated today. It is appropriate for late Spanish 1 or 2 (I have used successfully it in the second half of Spanish 1 in my 8th grade classes). Follow-up questions to the reading assess reading comprehension and spark discussion by comparing St. Jordi's Day and Valentine's Day.

This listing includes the Spanish reading handout with questions and teacher copy with answer key.
