Tomorrow I am going to the Domain to carol.  If your in the top orchestra then you can go. We will miss part of 3rd pd,4th pd,5th pd, and we come back during 6th.  It is optional, but you get to miss out on school, and you also get hot chocolate (from Starbucks)! YAY! Caroling at the Domain helps me think of this quote from the movie Elf, “The best way to spread Christmas cheer, is singing loud for all to hear.”

I like hot chocolate. It’s one of my favorite holiday drinks. Sipping the creamy, rich, sweet, melted chocolate with marshmallows. Oh!

I remember last year I went to carol at the Domain, and it was freezing during that time. We had to bring our own foldable stands which was  a problem because the stands couldn’t hold that much stuff. Another problem was the wind. It was so windy that day, so I kept having to push the music down so we could play. Plus, on that day it was super cold, so my hands were numb when I was playing. It’s sort of hard to play when your fingers are stiff. We did get some customers to watch us. But, some of them were just parents.

This year I’m excited but not too excited.

Bah, Humbug!

Christmas break is one of my favorite holidays. But there are some thing I dislike about Christmas.

One of the things I really don’t like about Christmas is the music. Argh! On almost every channel you’ll here the same songs being played over and over again. It’s fun in the beginning but later on it slowly hits me and I get so irratated. Don’t get me wrong, I still like Christmas, but it was be just a little bit more fun if they don’t play the same songs all the time!

Another thing is all the stress. School is coming to an end, and tests, semester finals are all piling up. I get a lot of stress due to studying all the time and having the tests and finals coming at me. I wish during the end of the semester, things would be a lot more relaxed before the break.

One final thing is the cold weather. The perfect temperature for me is when it is not too hot and not too cold. I like it when it is just right. Everyday I wait outside for the bus for 3-5 minutes in the freezing cold air. My hands turn numb, and cold air puffs out of my mouth when I speak. I can feel my body shivering even though I am wearing heavy jackets.

In conclusion, Christmas can have fun, great things but also terrible things as well. For example, the repetitive Christmas music, school stress, and freezing cold weather. Bah, Humbug!
