When the story begins you are taken back in time to 1957. Now, write a short account travelling forward to 2005. What was Christmas like that year for Carol, Jan, Joseph and Pavel. How do you find it different from today’s Christmas and how you spend it here?

    I think that in 2005 carol is with a red with white not so long dress and with a gold necklacke then she saw Jan and she ran shouting “Jan Jan” and then she ran in front of the bus and she woke up in the hospital with her husband Jan,Josef and Pavel singing christmas song. But she said “OH NO I’VE LOST MY CONCERT!” But Jan says “Don’t worry they reprogramed for tomorrow!” And thats what i think would happen

    On Christmas 2007, Carol was rehearsing for a concert in Prague.
    The night before Christmas she had an accident and the man who helped her turned out to be the twin brother of her husband Jan. Paven, Jan and their father Josef were happy to meet again and they were invited to the concert.
    All together they enjoyed “Christmas music in Prague”.

    I celebrate Christmas with my family. Usually at my grandparents house with my uncles, aunts and cousins. We enjoy dinner and at 12 o’clock we open presents.

    There are big differences between Christmas as described in the story and mine.
    In Prague it is winter during Christmas, snow and cold. Another difference is that our country is in peace and we don’t need to run away.

    In 2005 the christmas of Carol, Jan, Josef and Pavel was like this:
    First Carol saw his husband and ran infront of a bus and went to the hospital. Next
    Jan, Pavel and Josef went to hospital and talked about christmas in 1957. And they
    discovered that Jan and Pavel were brothers. Finally Carol played in the orchestra and
    all the family went.
    Now my christmas is like this:
    ‘I celebrate with all my family in one place. Some years it is in Norway and some years it is here. I celebrate with a party and all the family.
