Må jeg sige "Festen afsluttede da manden hoppede i svømmebassinet"? Hvorfor skal det være altid Passive?

The s on afsluttedes is necessary to ark the PARTY as the one ending. Without it, it should be: "Festen sluttede." Which is saying the same.

Why is the lesson forcing us to use words like "was" and "were" when they're not needed and actually make more sense without?
