Could you please explain me something in task 4?
In sentence 4 from task 4, "Santa has eight reindeer to help pull his sleigh." I don't understand why "reindeer" is written without an "s" at the end?

Hi Leila77,

The plural of reindeer is the same as the singular form. It's irregular :)

Thanks a lot.

I love celebrate Christmas! So, I trimmed the tree with tinsel, lights and ribbon. My family and I change some gifts. I usually cook Christmas pudding, turkey and rice . My son is excited to receive Santa and put his letter in the stocking. This year I decorate my porch with a big snowman, reindeer toys with sleigh.

My holiday starts in first July and end August. I usually go home and spend time with parents , grandparents and other family members.I live in Lucknow India.

hello in my country where i was born, we celebrate christmas and new year, And that's a big season for my family, to celebrated the christmas, we buy tinsel, holly to decorate our christmas tree and then cooking food, pray for all family.

Christmas in Egypt, it's very different, the Christmas Eve begins in coptic orthodox church starting with some shows with santa and end of the Eve with divine liturgy, but before celebrate that Christmas Eve it's followed 43 days of fasting, then we'll celebrating Christmas day started off on the morning with offer to presents for each other.

In Seville, people celebrate the New Year, Chrismas, Holy Week, the Fair of Seville, Epiphany. Those are the major celebrations or at least the ones I could remember.

We use to celebrate Christmas here, it's one of the biggest celebration of the year. Even if I use to think it's more and more a commercial celebration, I also think it's the moment to take time and appreciate every good moment in family.

I'm my country we celebrate Christmas, Easter and others.
