ESL students in grades 5 and 6 write about how they spend Christmas
I´m Yago. I love Christmas because Santa Claus brings presents to boys and girls. On Christmas Day I get up at 8 o´clock. I have milk and biscuits for breakfast. Then, I open the presents from Santa Claus. I want a book, a game and clothes. I help my mum with lunch. She prepares desert and my dad lays the table. We eat roast chicken with chips and turron . Delicious! It’s my favourite dessert. After lunch we play games in the living room. My favourite game is parcheesi.

Saturday, 15th December I get up at half past six a.m. because I have to go to A Coruña. I have a rehearsal with Galicia Symphonic orchestra. My cousins and my aunt came for dinner and when they left it was very late. Monday, 17th December In the morning, I go to school. After school, I go home and I get ready to go to the conservatory, because I have a violin audition. After the audition we went home, I had dinner and I went to bed immediately, because I was very sleepy.

I always spend Christmas with my family. On December 18th we decorate the house with lights and a Christmas tree in the living room. On December 24th we have dinner at my grandparents’ house and on the 25th and 31st of December at my paternal grandparents’ house. On the 25th we opened the presents and I loved it. My mother bought a perfume for me, for my sister a makeup case and for my father a sweatshirt and pants. My favourite day was New Year’s Eve. We had the twelve grapes at midnight but they were very harsh and we had a good time because my aunt was doing silly things. Lucia Perez – 6EP
