El año pasado recibiste una tarjeta de un amigo español.

Escribe una carta a tu amigo diciéndole lo que hacéis en tu familia durante las fiestas de Navidad, lo que hiciste este año, qué regalos recibiste, cuál prefieres y por qué, lo que vas a hacer en Nochevieja.

No te olvides de compararlo con lo que se hace en España.
