Alina is 11 years old. She lives in Russia, in Kaliningrad.
Alina sent me a wonderful letter in Russian, together with a beautiful picture she drew.
My best day
Silver snowflakes fall from the sky. Outside it is very quiet and magical. The city is decorated solemnly with bright chains of light. The windows of the houses are lighted, today nobody goes to bed early.
My best day is New Year’s Day. The whole family looks forward to the magic of New Year’s Day. Especially the children are excited about this celebration. We cook different dishes together. We joke, we laugh, everyone is excited in a comfortable way, in the feeling before the New Year’s Eve. Everybody dresses beautifully, everybody does their hair. My sister Lera and I dance around the New Year tree. Then we sit down at the table and enjoy delicious things. We wait for the chimes to congratulate each other and then we go outside. Pedestrians in the streets congratulate each other, children cheer and romp. Everybody watches the festive salute. Then we return home to go to sleep. We want the night to end quickly so that we can unwrap our New Year presents and see which presents Father Frost gave to us.
This is my best day.
Alina, thanks so much for your wonderful letter! Спасибо ❤
