 We decorate Christmas trees at our school. There isa big one in the corridor and smaller ones in the class-rooms. All the classrooms are beautifully decoratedwith baubles, ribbons, angels, Christmas cards anddecorations. Students belonging to one class have aclass meeting with their teacher. They share a wafer,tell wishes to one another and then sing carols. Theyalso have a mela. They eat a traditional Polish dish or just taste some cake. There is a special performance atour school gym every year. Students present Christ-mas traditions, tellpoem and sing car-ols. The atmos-phere in the lastday before theChristmas break isspecial.
