Many people have enough things and don’t want too many gifts themselves. In Canada, many people will not give big gifts to someone else. They will pay for a park bench or a tree to help remember a person. In the USA, some people ask their families and friends to give money to charity ratherthanbuy them gifts.

A Sample

My birthday is December 12th. Before my birthday,

my friends suggested to have a party. But I don' think

that was creative enough. So we decided to go hiking

to the country. On that day, my friends came to my

house early. They brought me different kinds of gifts,

such as books, cards, calendars, and photo album,

even a stuffed pig.

Soon we started our trip. We found it was

beautiful and funny out of the school. The

cloud, the sunshine, the trees, flowers and

the grass… all the things were interesting.

They all said my birthday was special and fun.
