Last weekend, I went to my parents' house where, like every year, we celebrated Christmas. As usual, I had an excellent day and I enjoyed seeing my nieces and nephews! Before lunch, everyone opened their presents. I got what I wanted: a brand-new bike ! Then we sat down to eat, and we devoured some oysters, smoked salmon and turkey. And at the end of this magnificent feast, Mum [US: Mom] brought out the delicious Yule log that she makes herself every year! It was magical! And you, how did your Christmas go this year?

Clever stuff happening!
