A Terrible and Terrific Christmas
Here is a Story that one of our students shared with us about her Christmas trip to the United States.
The Christmas trip
It was Christmas time and Adriana traveled from Mexico to visit her brother and sister-in-law in the United States. She hadn’t seen her brother for a few years and was going to finally meet Tina, her brother’s wife.
When Adriana arrived at the house, her brother presented his wife to her. They spent the next few hours chatting and having dinner. Once the desert was finished, they went to the living room and sat around the Christmas tree in preparation for the gift exchange.
The Gift Exchange
The presents were opened and the wrapping paper was strewn all about the living room floor. It was now Adriana’s turn to give Tina her gift. The present that Adriana chose to give had taken quite a lot of time to select because she wanted to be sure that it was something that Tina would really like. She decided to buy a very beautiful sweater with stunning colors. She handed the gift to Tina and wished her a merry Christmas. Watching Tina’s face with anticipation, she waited for her to open the gift.
