考教师网 Listen to the tape。 Mrs Green is talking about getting ready for Christmas。 Listen carefully and answer the questions in your workbook。
Mrs Green： Christmas Day is always on the same day every year - December 25th。 Everybody in England enjoys Christmas, but people often forget that getting ready for Christmas is very hard work。 There are so many things for us to do。
The first problem is this： you have to make sure that you have enough to eat and drink. People usually eat a big bird for Christmas dinner - a big chicken， for example， or a big duck. Also， of course， you have to make a big Christmas cake. I usually make the Christmas cake in November. A Christmas cake is full of fruit， with sugar on top. You need many other things for Christmas - nuts， sweets and apples - that kind of thing.
Father usually buys the Christmas tree。 He brings it home, and the children cover it with lights, and put a star on top, so it looks really beautiful。 We always have a fire, too。 I ask Jim to cut up wood for the fire。
考教师网 Everybody gives each other presents for Christmas. We put the presents on the floor under the tree on Christmas Eve， and open them on Christmas Day.
Nobody must open their presents before Christmas Day！
