10 2 Listening
What do you want for Chrismas?
Eric senei will talk about Christmas in America. Listen carefully.
How do you celebrate Christmas in America? Could you talk about that?

Chistmas is my favorite holiday. In the days before Christmas we put up many decorations. We put up a big Christmas tree in our house, and we decorate the outside of our houses with Christmas lights. At night time, it is very beautiful to see all the colorfully-lit up houses.
In America, elementary school students sing Christmas carols everyday during the month of December. Elementary school students believe that Santa Claus will bring them many presents if they are good, so children happily sing many Christmas songs everyday. Santa Claus is a big, fat jolly man who has a sleigh pulled by reindeer, and it is believed that he gives presents to children all over the world on Christmas Eve.
Children hang Christmas stocking by the fireplace because it is said that Santa will come down the chimney on Christmas Eve to fill the stockings. Small presents and candy go into the stockings, and big presents go under the Christmas tree.
On Christmas morning, children open their presents. Christmas is usually spent with the family. In the evening we have a special Christmas dinner. In America we usually eat Turkey or Christmas ham. We also eat stuffing, mashed potatoes, fruitcake, Christmas cookies. And we drink egg nog.
Also, before Christmas we send out Christmas cards to our family and friends. The cards usually say Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, or Season's Greeting.
In my house, we believe that Christmas in Jesus Christ's birthday, and at midnight, on Christmas Eve, my family and I go to church for midnight mass. At church, we all sing Christmas carols and hymns, and we pray.
