Shavla K: Everybody in my family has hair that expresses their personality. My dad's hair is a balding, bright, neon pink. He is so funny, weird and an outgoing person. My younger brother, his hair is like a dark, shaggy, brown mop. You can never see his face, just his mouth that is mostly shut. My youngest brother has hair like spikes in a torture chamber. With light red on the tips, like blood.
My hair is as purple as dark rainy sky. But my mom's hair is like a rainbow, brighting up the sky. But when she's mad it gets dark. When she's happy the colours shine off her head like Skittles all bright.
Smonespecial; My family takes a big family vacation for a week every two years. This started with my grandparents, aunts/uncles, and cousins. Now many of my cousins are married and have kids, so our vacation continues to get bigger and bigger. A lot of people are shocked that our vacation is for an entire week, but it works well. Gives us time to reconnect... and reminds us why we don't live closer together. =) One of the traditions of vacation is having one big meal a day all together. Each of the 6 siblings' families take a night to be in charge of the meal and entertainment.
b) Look through the replies again. Work in pairs. Which of the traditions are: easy to adopt, very unique, fun to try at least once, amusing, quite common, religious, weekly, yearly, borrowed from another culture? Which traditions would you like to adopt? Which ones would your family turn down? Why?
4 i) Prepare to talk about one of your family traditions. Invent one more family tradition that your family doesn't follow.
b) Walk around the class. Tell your classmates about both traditions. Let them guess which one is true. Then change roles.
c) Report on the most unusual tradition or special event you've heard from your classmates.
5 Tell your partner about your family traditions or special events. Do you have anything in common with your partner?
