My favourite holiday

Hello! My name’s Emma. I’ve got a very big family. There are seven of us: my mother, my father, my two sisters, my cat and my dog. We often spend time together. My favourite holiday is New Year. We always celebrate this holiday at home.

My parents buy a big New Year tree. We decorate the tree with colourful toys all together. We cook tasty food too.

Most of all I like to look under the New Year tree. Father Christmas always puts gifts under the New Year tree. They are lovely! We open the gifts and play with them all together!
