Christmas is the most important festival in the western world. It is on December 25th. Usually two weeks before, people begin to prepare lots of Christmas presents. People who are far away on business hurry to return their home for Christmas.
Last Christmas, my mother and I were invited by one of my mother' s friends to have Christmas with an American family. Entering the brilliant hall, we saw a beautiful Christmas tree decorated with colorful lights. In the middle of the hall stood a big table. On it were something delicious.How beautiful it was! We were impressed by these. We had a big meal.After dinner, the hosts told us many stories about Christmas. Every year more than 140 countries in the world have Christmas to celebrate the day Jesus was born. On that day children were the happiest of all because they could get presents from the Santa Claus with white beard. We enjoyed ourselves very much.
This Christmas was really unforgettable. Not only did I have a good time, but also I knew something about foreign culture.
