Christmas Lights – level 2

17-12-2020 07:00

Sarah Bailey from Ohio, US, decorated her family house with many Christmas lights. She prepared a light show, and she played a Taylor Swift song during the show.

Bailey posted the video on her social media, and she could not believe her eyes when Swift reacted to it. Swift wrote that she was happy that Bailey chose her song. Bailey also reminded in the video that there was a food donation in her town and Swift donated some money, too.

Bailey was very happy to get a response from the music star. She said that this year was very difficult for many people. and she wanted to make them happy with her light show.

Difficult words: food donation (an event when people can bring food to a special place, and later other people who need the food will get it), donate (to give money or things to people who need them), response (an answer).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
