For many people around the world, Christmas is a very important year-end holiday. However, there are many other holidays celebrated at this time too. Please share any specific cultural and religious festivities or days that are important to you or others in your area.

Here is a listening Activity on my Website about Christmas:

  1. Christmas is very famous around the world. In my country, people also celebrate Christmas though it's not the most important holiday. The festival which people most expect is lunar new year. In these days, people give each other best wishes. Housewives make traditional food. Men can drink themselves drunk. Children receive money for their new age. Students are off school for a long time. Therefore, from old to young, form rich to poor, everyone enjoy these days.
