I have got my mum and dad, 2 brothers and a little sister. We celebrate many holidays together. But the biggest holiday is a birthday of any member of my family. We have our family traditions of this holiday. First of all we write nice invitations for relatives and friends. Usually a birthday boy (or a girl) makes them. We are all going to celebrate my birthday soon. I have already made some for my birthday. Then my elder brothers help me to decorate the sitting room for a birthday party. We have already made little flags of all colours and my mum has bought balloons. Part Two When guests come, a birthday boy/girl must guess a present. A guest says the first letter, for example: “b” and I ask “Is it a ball?” or “Is it a book?”. If it’s right, I get a present and congratulations. If it’s wrong, I guess again. Isn’t it fun? At the birthday party we eat tasty food, talk and play. My friends and I like to play computer games. I think my dad has already bought me a new game. I like this holiday a lot. It’s the best time for me. 8. True or False? 1. Paul has got an elder sister and two little brothers. 2. Paul’s family has some family traditions. 3. A birthday boy/girl must make a birthday cake. 4.
