The holiday country I am doing is Italy. They say ''Buon Natale" to greet people and their tree is the cultural tree. Italy never had christmas trees as a symbol for the Italian Christmas. Christmas Eve is a time to also show artist work of a manger scene. Christmas in Italy has two types Christians do normal traditions and pre Christians do something called Saturnalia. They also light something called a Yule log which has to stay lighted until New Years Day. This is another tradition with Italy. Another tradition is on January sixth kids put out shoes on the night before the Epiphany and an old women comes around Italy on a broom and leaves toys for the children, but only if they are good if they are bad she leaves hot lumps of coal for them. I love how theydo there traditions because they have so many! I hope you liked the information about Italy as much as I did!

My name is Emily. I have two dogs. One is a shitzu named Zoey she is a four year old female. And the other is a Cairn Terrior named Max he is a two year old male. I also have one male betta fish. We are also going to get some chickens soon. The last and final animal I have is my little brother named Nolan he is a eight year old male. When I grow up I would like to be a domestic veternarian not a farm one. The reason why I want to be a DOMESTIC veternarian is becuase I love dogs. So hopefully I won`t have to deal with the cats a lot. Not that I don`t like cats it`s just that I have never had one before so I don`t know how to care of them. Also, when I grow up I`m gonna have two dogs, I`m not sure what kind yet, and two to three kids. If I have three I want two girls and one boy. If I have two kids I want one boy and one girl. I love the sport soccer and I also do tae kwon do, and teach these cute 6 year old kids. That is ME and what i am going to do when I grow up!
