At our house, celebrating festivities is very important. It is an opportunity to get together and spend time as a family. At Christmas everybody comes to our house and we share a big meal. We eat turkey and then we give each other presents. Sometimes we invite the neighbours. We also go to mass and pray for the less fortunate. It is unforgettable. In our family we like to celebrate Easter too, however, I think some celebrations have become too commercial, such as Valentine’s Day. I hate it when the shops are full of Christmas merchandise in November.
