Hello, Dima! I congratulate you on the last holidays: New Year and Merry Christmas!
I was eager to write to you earlier, but I decided to wait until the end of the holidays to describe to you all the news and interesting events.
It is a great pity that we live in different cities and see you only in the summer, having a rest at our grandmother’s. But I often remember and tell my friends how fun we spend with you summer vacations: we swim in the river, ride on the “tarzanka”, bake potatoes at the stake and many, many other our activities. All my city friends are simply delighted with my stories – not all of them have the opportunity to so relax.
In your last letter, you told me how in September your class went camping into the forest. I was so
Do you remember how in the summer, in the heat, we dreamed of winter and winter holidays? We were so impatiently waiting for her to come! And then winter came into its own. We have very good weather – snow, as they say, knee-deep, frosty frost! You go, and the snow under your feet creaks to different voices: then stronger, then quieter, then in a thin voice, then in a lower voice. You can play snowballs, ride on sledges, skis and skates, build fortresses out of snow. I have long ago pulled out of the pantry all winter “gear”, and you?
How did you celebrate the New Year? Where? With whom? It was fun, probably it was! Be sure to write me!
We met the New Year at home, then went to the square, watched the salute, walked around the main city tree. The people are dark, and all are so happy, friendly, congratulate each other! Then the parents met good acquaintances, and they invited them to their place, and Andrei (he became so important, let go of the mustache, you’ll see – do not know) went to celebrate with his fellow students. So I stayed with my grandparents. They watched TV, called all friends and relatives, congratulated them on holidays, ate all sorts of goodies. The table, as always in the New Year, was bursting with all sorts of salads, pies, mushroom, fish and sweet dishes. About three o’clock in the morning Andrew came back and said that their company would now arrange a real firework in our yard. Of course, I could not miss this! It was so cool! The sky was colored with all the colors of the rainbow!
I really hope that you will come to my birthday – April 15. And before that we will write to each other.
Once again I congratulate you and your whole family on the last holidays and wish you all the very best! Say hello to Anya, Kostya and all the guys. See you!
