Merry Christmas Eve to all our readers out there.

I am a Catholic by tradition and by family. And I also know there are other cultures where Xmas do not exist or simply the meaning is different than the one I was educated in, after all that, please allow me to share with you my dear readers a video which wraps up how I get introduced to Christmas when I was a kid and how this has changed to a Santa tradition nowadays.

We had share almost year by year these greetings and as I said before, for some this means Merry Christmas for some others is Christmas Eve and of course for my family and the people whose roots are Latin means Feliz Navidad!

Teachers Know How Common is Plagiarism

NYC Educator:

    I once had a young student from Russia, very bright, but not such a great writer. Being resourceful, she compensated for her lack of skill by simply copying things off the internet. Once, she brought me several extra credit papers, one about the joys of Shakespeare. No, no, I told her, people often think I'm an idiot by virtue of being an English teacher, but I'm not as dumb as I look. Also, I've seen your writing before and this isn't it.

    One day, I was in the office and a bunch of kids, for some reason, had a paper she'd gotten an A on. I read it and noted that it was an AP who'd given her the A. I looked up her class, knocked on the door, and pulled her out. I told her I knew she hadn't written this paper, if I could figure it out others could too, and that she could get in deep trouble for pulling such nonsense. That didn't phase her at all. She had but one thing to say:

    "You aren't going to tell Ms. Clueless, are you?"
