On many occasions, as a keepsake or a souvenir we often get something in the form of a trophy. The common mistake that most people make is to call it a Momento. but I just want to point out that Momento is not even an English word, its a Latin word for "moment" and is not at all related to a souvenir. Whereas Memento is just that, something to 'Stir memories' of a good times, something to remember by!

So please next time you begin to say, I got a momento in my office, please correct yourself to memento! :) :) :)
