1. Read the text and put the sentences in the correct order.

I like Christmas, Mother’s Day and St. Valentine’s Day but my favourite holiday is New Year.

Usually my parents and I celebrate the New Year at home or at the cottage of my parents’ friend. But this New Year we celebrated at my grandparents’ house in the village. We had a lot of fun! We didn’t want to decorate the New Year tree in the house because we saw a nice fir-tree in the yard. My father and I decorated it with my old toys and garlands.

At night my aunt, uncle and cousins came and we sang songs and danced around the New Year tree. Most of all everybody enjoyed playing snowballs.

Then we gave presents to each other. My cousins got new bikes and I got a new mobile phone.
