Q: What's the
' between "to"and
A: Well, they're pronounced the same
exact way. The second one is only used
two (hey, there's another one!) ways. It
means either "excessive" as in "too
much" or it means "also" when placed
at the end of a sentence. The first one is
a preposition or the beginning of an
I Grammar I
Q: Do mostAmeicansgo to church on
Christmas Day? If not, what do they do?
A: That's a difficult generalization.
Christmas is a big holiday in the US, but
not everyone in the US is Christian.
And of the people who are, many do not
attend church regularly. Generally
speaking, people who celebrate
Christmas in the US spend time with
their families and loved ones on
Christmas Day if they can.
Live as if you were to die tomorrow.
Learn as if you were to live forever.
