Write a letter to your pen pal describing the way you celebrated the New Year’s Day.

Dear Mike,

How are you? I hope you are fine. Thanks a lot for your letter where you told me about Christmas celebrations in the USA.

I’m writing to tell you about my impressions of celebrating the New Year’s Day. I saw the New Year in with my family and friends in Kaniv. It was wonderful.

Firstly, my friends and I went downtown. We had fun at the big Christmas tree which was beautifully decorated. We danced, listened to music and played snowballs. After that I joined my family at home and we saw the New Year in at the festive table. There were lots of delicious dishes. Then we had fun chatting and watching entertainment programmes on TV.

To cut the long story short, I had a great time. I hope the year, which has started, will bring lots of happy and exciting moments.

What about you? How did you celebrate the New Year’s Day?

Keep in touch.
