Angry Birds
ANGRY Birds is a very popular video which has sold over 12 million copies. Players use a catapault  to launch birds at pigs with the intent of destroying all the pigs. As you get better, new birds appear, some with special abilities that can be activated by the player. It sounds strange, but it’s really addictive. You can see brightly coloured Angry Birds everywhere now. They are on many items such as iPhone4 covers, pencil cases, bags, shoes, T-shirts, key rings and toys.

Halloween party
THE word Halloween comes from “All Hallows eve”. It’s a tradition in countries such as the US that on October 31 people tell scary stories, watch horror films,  go trick or treating, attending costume parties, carve pumpkins and play pranks. People  dress up in scary costumes. Some dress  like ghosts, ninjas, witches, scary nurses, doctors and so on. Trick or treat is when kids dress up as a ghost or something else and go to their neighbours’ houses and say: “Trick or treat?” If the person who answers the door gives the children a treat, like a sweet, they will go away. If not, the children will play a trick on them. Sounds like fun.
