Merry Christmas!

My dear readers and friends,

I know that you come from all over the world, and some of you don’t celebrate Christmas, others do, so it was a kind of a dilemma for me, whether or not I should mention Christmas on IELTS-Blog.

Did you know that is visited by people from 173 different countries? And, of course, you all belong to different races, practice different religions, plus quite a few of you are atheists.

But anyway, I decided that because I now live in Australia and here we do celebrate Christmas, I can’t just shut up and let this day go unnoticed 🙂

I wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
