Dear Tim,

Thank you for your last letter. I was glad to hear from you. I'm sorry for haven't been writing you for a long time. I was preparing for my exams.

As for Russia, there are lots of different holidays, such as New Year, Christmas, Country Defendant's Day*, International women's Day and so on. For example, every year on the 31 of December my mum cooks delicious meals, my daddy and I decorate our Christmas tree. At 10 pm we gather together and at five minutes before New Year everybody listen to President's speech. Then we wish each other great year and give presents.

By the way, where are you going to spend your summer holidays? What do you think about a trip to Russia? Will you spend holidays with your parents or with friends?

Anyway, I have to go now as I'm helping my Dad in the shop. I'm looking forward to hearing from you!

Write back soon!

Best wishes,
