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. copyright xzhufu
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.
Evely nation has its own folk festivals. those festivals give people a chance to be away from their regular work and everyday worries to enjoy themselves and to develop kindship and fi''iendship. the spring festival is the chief holiday in china while christmas is the most important redletter day in the western world.
the spring festival and christmas have much in common. both are prepared hefiorehand to create a joyous atmosphere; both offer a family reunion with a square feast: and both satisfy the children with new clothes, lovely presents and delicious food. however, the chinese spring festival has no religious background while christmas has something to do with god and there is santa claus with white heard to bring children presents. the westerners send each other christmas cards for greetings while the chinese people pay a call on each other.
nowadays, some of the chinese youth has begun to celebrate christmas, following the example of the westerners. perhaps they do so just for fun and out of curiosity.
Although Christmas is a Western holiday, but now there are many Chinese people love it, perhaps because in the day we can get many gifts, or perhaps because it is
Interesting, but I love it, and more than that, but also because we are teachers and students together, happy, except that the "red, green and white" between teachers and students outside of deep love.
Hope the stars, get the moon, and finally looked forward happy Christmas. On that day, I arrived gate, suddenly, I was shocked, and saw a Santa Claus holding a saxophone, where side-hop edge blowing, extremely beautiful and it is filled with gifts and lawn around the time I really 好想well want to touch it, the way it should be a gift ah! "Hey! A pity! It is simply impossible. Immediately, I saw two or three from Santa Claus face, hands, also took a number of things, but unfortunately do not see what is inside. Powerful sense of curiosity that I can not help to pour into the crowd, along for the ride
. "So is the candy ah!" Although I rarely eat candy, but not today, I would have to carry on eating one meal, even if I lost half of the teeth.
When I walked into the classroom, that's even more shocked, Christmas tree and dancing Santa Claus
...... Even though I was stunned. Christmas party started, a loud crash, ribbon slowly falling, the students expressed a few years with the singing teacher's love, expressed after the students and teachers in their own ways of expressing their love for the children, This is love in the teacher's speech in the saturated
The students were all deeply moved, tears. This deep sense of love wafts through the entire classroom teachers and students,
Preserved intact in every human heart, Christmas party is over, but that any other person,
Any material can replace the teacher-student love will always wafts through the entire classroom, warm heart.
That happy and full of love Christmas, I will always remember the bottom of my heart, never, never ......
christmas is one of the most important celebrations of the year for the western countries. it falls on the twenty- fifth of december and has the same importance as chinese new year to people with english backgrounds. the celebration is for the birth of jesus christ, who is the son of god in christianity. now days christmas is no longer only celebrated by the christians, but by most people from all over the world.
on the twenty- fourth of december everyone gets excited for it’s the day before christmas which is called christmas eve. the children are usually sent to bed early and are warned that “santa claus will only come and give you a present if you be good.” the younger kids actually believe that santa will come down the chimney on the sleigh that’s pulled by his reindeers. food like short bread and beer are prepared for santa when he comes, however most times parents just eat them. some children put socks and sacks up for the holding of the presents (that their parents put in).
rise and shine on christmas morning! the children are always the first ones to wake up, some even do at four. present wrappers everywhere! they look into their presents with a big smile on their face and oh dear….i hope no one’s disappointed. i feel sorry for anyone that got pink underwear. children play while dinner is prepared by the adults. the christmas dinner are usually eaten together by relatives. the tradition of christmas pudding and roosters are usually eaten with deserts afterwards. the rest of the day is usually games and fun before the good days all come to an end.
i wish everyone a merry christmas and a happy new year!!!
it was one of the last days before christmas, and the as sistants in the large store had their hands full serving eager christmas shoppers.
at one counter an old lady was choosing gloves red ones for her daugher in law, light blue ones for her niece, pink ones for her grand daughter, green ones for her sister and by the time she had found what she wanted, the counter was covered with pairs of all colors and sizes.
when the salesgirl had finally written out the bill and was about to turn to the next customer with a tired voice. "thank you very much, madam," the old lady suddenly cried out, "oh, i almost forgot..."——"anything else, madam?" said the girl, "yes," began the old lady, "i'd like to buy another pair, but i' m not quite sure about what exactly i should cloose. i wonder if you could help me." "certainly, madam", was the girl's reply. the old lady then went on to explain that what she was looking for was a pair of gloves for a girl of her age. she was not at ail sure what color to choose, and the design was a problem too.
