The Day Before Christmas Break by Chester Bier

     I don’t remember the exact date but it was the end of a Friday. The only reason this Friday was important was because it was the last day of school before winter break. The begining half of the day was pretty boring but Ms. Gavin’s 4th period was when it got fun. When I walked in the classroom, I heard some nice groovy christmas music. Once we all sat down, Ms.Gavin told us what we were going to do. We were going to start with secret Santa then watch a special Nickelodeon Christmas show. The secret Santa was a lot of fun. My partner Maria gave me a thing of Hershey's choclate mix and I gave her a fluffy panda thing from Daiso (Daiso is a Japanesse $1 store). After the secret santa, we watched the Nickelodeon christmas special. I think it was called Alvin and the Christmas Tree. After we finished the episode, we said our goodbyes and then the bell rang and we were free for 3 weeks.
