The Christmas is very special day for me this year. The Christmas mean love. When I grow up, my family have love me very much. Every Christmas , we had a wonderful day. I have lived in Saint John and I will spend Christmas alone, not my family, not my friends. Now I think of my family! I really feel grateful to them very much. I miss them very, very much. Thank you.
