Re: There is tresure in church
I did suggest that you forget the 'original purpose' idea. I have also suggested, in other threads, that you stop trying to shoehorn eveyr utterance into a limited number of labelled categories. Language cannot be compartmentalised in this way - at least, English can't.
When your friend said, "School is happening", s/he was telling you that normal lessons would take place, that the next day (despite it being officially a holiday) was a normal school day.
