Tyler: Finally, the Winter Break is here...Umm..I was just wondering, how do you guys celebrate the holidays?
Alexis: We celebrate Christmas, obviously.. Don't all people celebrate it?
Xin : I don't... Chinese people don't celebrate Christmas, partially because we are not assimilated into the Western Culture. As Chinese people, we celebrate Chinese New Year.
Laura: I am going on a vacation! Isn't that awesome?
Xin: Cool, where are you going?
Laura: I am going to SPAIN! Hasta la vista baby! I've alwa#Www.In263.Comys wanted to go there, it's like, my dreamland. I love spanish foods and stuffs, it's so romantic!
Alexis: Oh wow Laura, you sound excited. Bon Voyage then.
Jordan: Hey, you know what? I am also going on a vacation...I am going to visit the Great Wall of China!
Danielle: Holy cow...Seriously? That is great...I have always wanted to go there, never had a chance though.. Tyler, what about you?
Tyler: My sister Olivia and her fiance are going to New York. That leaves me and my parents. I am stuck with them. I really hope i can come along with my sister, she won't let me, though.
Danielle: Yeah, all big siblings think younger siblings are pests.
Alexis: OH my god, i almost forgot to mention it. Our family is going on a trip to visit my aunt in France! I am going with them.
Laura: Lucky you!
Tyler: I know, i am mentally depressed right now.
Jordan: Tyler, maybe..You can come with me...You know, you are like my best best friend in the whole world. Maybe, my parents will permit you to tag along..
Tyler: Really? Aww you are so nice...I really hope i can visit the Great Wall of China..
Xin: Hey, but don't you guys have to have a reunion with your family? Isn't that what Christmas is all about? To be together at the end of the year?
Laura: Xin, you do know a lot about Western Culture!
Xin: Heh, thanks. Anyways i have to go now, and i hope you guys will have a memorable trip, wherever it is.
Alexis: Thanks, see you later Xin.
Danielle: That leaves me...I really want to go on a vacation, but my parents insist on staying at home and "be together".
Jordan: That's ok Danielle. Different families have different traditions, ways of celebrating holidays. I believe yours will be equally fun.

Danielle: Thanks guys. Oh my gosh, i am going to be late for class, i have to go now as well!
Laura: So do i! See you.
