Christmas is the most important festival in the western world. It falls on December 25th. When my mother and I stayed in America, we were invited by one of my mother's friends to have Christmas with an American family. We bought some presents for our American friends on our way to their house.
They had prepared different kinds of gifts for their family and guests when we got to their house, such as Christmas candles, cakes, cards, little toys, biscuits and so on. A Christmas tree was placed in the comer of the brilliant hall. How beautiful it was! We were impressed by these. We had a big meal. After dinner, they told us some interesting stories about Christmas. We learned that Christmas had something to do with God. We went to bed at midnight. Though we knew the Santa Claus was not true, we were still waiting for the Santa Claus with white beard to bring us presents.And we received many beautiful presents the next morning.
This Christmas was really unforgettable. Not only did I have a good time, but also I knew something about foreign culture.
Christmas Day is on December 25th. It was originated in the western country, but today, this festival has been celebrated by the world. For the manufacturers, they are very happy to make this day as a shopping day. I enjoy the great atmosphere.
I had a very special Christmas day last year. I experienced the western style festival. There was a new foreign teacher taught us the lesson. She was about 50 years old and she was very kind and we all liked her. On Christmas Day, she brought us the desserts she made early in the morning. We enjoyed the home-made cakes. What's more, she invited us to came to her house and spent the day with her. Then for the first time, I ate big turkey, which was so delicious. The turkey was filled with many stuffs and the flavor was so good. After dinner, we sang songs and danced.
Thanks to my foreign teacher, I experienced the American style festival. It was such funny for me. Though today many people enjoy shopping in all kinds of festivals, the meaning of these festival should be remembered.
Christmas day is becoming more and more fire over the years, the annual Christmas Eve, the streets are the smell of Christmas, I'm not very interested in, although for Christmas but also be infected by this lively breath.

Everybody agreed with me, so we spent a day to take some funny pictures, and everybody wrote down their names on the card. When we sent this gift to the teachers, they loved it so much. They were so impressed by this precious surprise and would keep it forever.
