Our adult education students practice their English skills with writing exercises. This month, many of our students wrote about why they like Christmas. They wrote about food, gifts, and tradition. What makes the holiday season special for you?
I like Christmas because of the really nice Mexican food like tamales, atole, tostadas, pozole, pico de gallo, bunuelos, etc… Also because I have three grandsons and they like piñatas, and I do, too. There is another thing I like. We pray all together and we follow our youngest grandchild. For me that is a marvelous thing to do. I am very happy when I see family and friends together. Sometimes we also sing and laugh and give good wishes for everyone in the new year. -Maria
I like Christmas time because we have a dinner with my family and my grandkids. They open presents; but I enjoy it when my grandkids write a letter to Santa. I can see that they still believe in Santa. I want a white Christmas. -Olivia
Christmas is very special because we always cook traditional food such as tamales bacalo in romeritos. Before the party, we clean our houses. We usually wear new clothes and some people visit church to give thanks for another day of life. I like this day because the whole family is together. We receive gifts, especially the kids. - Lourdes
