"The kids sometimes nose around the house for Christmas gifts."
"I have umpteen presents to buy before Christmas Eve."
Christmas is a time when children hope to receive presents from their parents, other family, and friends. Imagine that you are one of the children in this conversation (a three-year-old boy and a six-year-old girl). What Christmas gifts would you like to receive?
Listen to the conversation again as you read the Quiz Script .
Is Christmas celebrated in your country? If so, in what ways? What other religious and secular traditions and holidays are held during this same season? Interview other international students or friends and research how the year-end holidays are celebrated around the world, including popular gifts that people exchange at this time of year.
