    Hi!
    The Christmas tree is so special to me!
    When I see its shining lights,
    I feel happy in cold winter nights.

    Hi!
    May we go caroling you this night?

    Sing hey! Sing hey!
    For Christmas day;
    Twine mistletoe and holly,
    For friendship glows
    In winter snow,
    And so let’s all be jolly.

  4. Tania Says:

    Hi! Dear Emiliano, our dear blog friend, I would like to come caroling you. Maybe next year.

    Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, you and your family.

    Best wishes,

    Tania

    Dear all Associated with ESLPOD.com

    I would like to wish everyone in the whole world a very Joyful and Peaceful end of year 2012.

    Let us welcome 2013 by reading great delicious articles by our three great teachers – Jeff, Lucy and Warren.

    Dear Emiliano, thank you for looking for me, I am still alive. I have not answered Warren’s question: ‘want to live longer?’ yet.

    Yes, I want to live longer, I have every reason to want to live longer – learning and improving English is one of the reasons.

    I must go now, too much to do during X’Mas

    Just want to quickly say:

    Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy NewYear of 2013.

    Betty :)
