Do you have an unforgettable festival or holiday? Write it down.
An Unforgettable Holiday I am always busy with my lessons. Luckily, last summer my family went to my uncle’s farm. We enjoyed a really interesting holiday. During the holiday, I didn’t have to get up early, nor did I need to finish many exercises. I rode the horse in the fields. I milked the cows on the farm. To my great joy, my uncle invited me to go fishing. Life on the farm was quite different from that at school. I want to go back to spend my summer holiday there again.

Dear Tom, I'm very glad to tell you something about Spring Festival. It’s a traditional festival in China. It comes in winter. It’s time to get new. We usually clean and decorate our house carefully before it comes. I always help my mother clean the windows and wash the clothes. We put on chunlian on the door and chuanghua on the window. It’s time to get together. Everyone go home to get together with their family, though someone is far away from home. They must have dinner together on that day. They must visit their relatives and friends and say “Happy new year” to them. When the kids greet their grandparents, they can get money. Yours Li Lei
