My family were strongly against me when 1 was going to Europe over the Christmas holidays with a friend of mine. Mother said that 36 there was going to be a family reunion(聚会), I really 37 to stay at home. Although I always 38 these occasions(场合),nobody could make me change my mind.
A week before Christmas, my friend and I 39 to Madrid and then traveled by train through Spain, France and Germany. On Christmas Eve we 40 a small town in southern Germany and were greatly 41 to find so many activities. The streets were 42 with people, and then shops were full of all kinds of interesting things. We walked 43 for hours and then just before midnight we went to listen to Christmas songs sung by children in the main square. We 44 to our hotel late that night, 45 forward to the next day when we 46 to have Christmas 47 at the best restaurant in town. However, in the morning 48 people were seen in the streets.
To make the matter 49 ,every shop was 50 up tightly, even the restaurants. We 51 uselessly for hours and 52 had to get back to our hotel feeling unhappy and 53 .Our Christmas meal was a bag of fruit 54 my friend had bought the day before. Our thoughts sadly turned to home. At that moment, our families must have been 55 us “Merry Christmas”.
