    The construction is fine but what is "The Soccer Day" or "Soccer Day"? If it's the title of a particular celebration in your country then you need a capital letter at the beginning of each word.
    Didn't we celebrate Valentine's Day a few days back?
    Didn't we celebrate Christmas a few days back?


    3. What was he going on about?
    Yes.


    Thanks,
