La mañana de Navidad (Topic: Christmas)
“It’s finally Christmas!” shouted my little sister. This was the sound that woke up the whole family on the 25th December. The day before, we had put up the Christmas tree; we placed an angel on top and decorated it with Christmas baubles.
My parents had hung the stockings on the fireplace and now they were full of sweets. Above them on the mantlepiece were Christmas cards that our family had sent us to wish us happy holidays. Of course, there was also the typical Christmas wreath, which added to the idyllic Christmas scene, along with a giant nutcracker guarded the Christmas tree.
When we went into the living room, I saw that Father Christmas had arrived that night bearing presents. But that wasn’t all. The cat was playing with the lights and had twisted the cable around his body. The tree was falling towards the fire in the fireplace so I ran to stop it. “I think next time we can do without the lights to reduce the risk!” said my mum.
