But maybe you can come back again at another opportunity to teach us more English as you have been doing so well.It was a great partnership between you and Veronika. You two gave us good things to learn and think. Here in my country the Christmas celebrations take place on the night of 24th. Families usually have meals very late at night. The typical dish is turkey. But nowadays it's been changing to another bird: the "Chester". I'm not sure weather it really is another bird or a variation of a chicken....I'd like to wish you a very nice Christmas full of joys and the company of your family and friends.See you around.

Thank you for new vocabulary and grammar recommendations, they were usefull for me.In Russian we celebrate Christmas after New year celebrate, on the 7-th of January. So it will be not soon. I think a New year celebration more popular in our country than the Christmas day. In the New year we give some presents for friends and relatives especially for children of course. Between the days from the 1 to 10 of January we have a long holiday.Happy Christmas!Marina from Moscow.

Very interesting and useful your posts. It happens to me that I start to feel happier when we have the winter solstice (I don´t like winter), because as you say the way can only go up. It´s a possitive thougt that helps to face winter. Now, happily in B.A. Argentina we start summer. The best for you for the Next Year!!!! Beatriz.

We have special supper (usually fried carp and potato salad), sing carols by the decorated tree and than unwrap the presents which were under the tree. The Children believe that these presents are from Baby Jesus; but actually, nobody knows how does he look like - if like real Jesus or differently. I am not from a catholic family, so when I was a child I thought he looks like hedgehog in coat and cap (in Czech, hedgehod is "jezek", so it is very similar to Baby Jesus - "Jezisek"). It is sometimes very funny to talk with children about their ideas of Baby jesus :-)Merry Christmas,Tereza Mon 20 Dec 2010 20:32:10 GMT+1
