Hi, I’m Sera and this is my fourth month in Canada. December was a busy month. I did a lot of Christmas shopping, and had a lot of activities going on. We had a Christmas Party with the international students. Everyone had to bring food. It was great. I got to try different food from all around the world. We also had to bring a small present to put it under the tree. Thanks for my coordinator, and the ambassador students it was a wonderful day.
This month I snowboarded for the first time!! I’ll be honest, it is really hard and I’m still trying to stop. But it is fun. I’m working on the bunny hill, and I think I’ll be on the big hill in a few weeks. My host sisters and my friends are helping me a lot.
Christmas was amazing. We didn’t get a white Christmas like I was hoping but I really had fun. I had parcels from back home. My friends and my host family bought me presents, and I thought Santa had actually came!. We opened the presents first, and then we had a Christmas breakfast. It was delicious. We played card games and listened to Christmas songs. Later on, we had our famous Christmas supper. Of course there was turkey, stuffing, and some vegetables. I had fun that day. We are still trying to finish the turkey though!.
I don’t remember how many times I went to the mall to buy presents but it was worth it. Whenever we go out when it’s dark, we could see pretty lights everywhere. I can say that Canadians really like decorating their houses with lights. The lights are still out.
I also had a surprise this month,when I was at the ski hill. I saw one of my friends that I met at the camp. She is a foreign correspondent too!! And was great to see her again.
This month was amazing! I didn’t realize how the time passed by. I remember my days, counting days to come here and now it’s been four months and I only have six months left!!
