Christmas in Brazil
Every year after school ends all my family meets in Petrópolis, at my grandma’s house. On the 24th of December, we have a big dinner, all the neighbors and close friends are invited. Arabic and Brazilian food is served, after dinner everyone eats and we go to the living room upstairs. We give hints about our secret friend, and then everyone gets its present, from secret friend. Then my cousins, my brothers, and I, put on a play, usually based on Christmas. The next day we wake up and we have an enormous breakfast with pancakes, toasts, bread, juice, milk and coffee. After breakfast we go up to the living room again and we all open our other presents. We spend 4 more days there and then we go down to Rio de Janeiro where we spend New Years.
