Christmas Lights – level 3

17-12-2020 07:00

Last Friday, Sarah Bailey posted a video on social media of her family’s extravagant Christmas lights display in Ohio, US, that was set to Taylor Swift’s song ’Christmas Tree Farm’.

Bailey is a local singer and songwriter, and her light display got the attention of the Grammy-award winner, who prompted a direct message to Bailey. In her post, Bailey reminded the public about a food drop box for donations that was located in her area, and Swift made a donation, too.

Bailey expressed her excitement and shock about receiving a response from the music star. She added that this year was tough; however, her light show was something that everyone could enjoy safely from the comfort of their cars or the sidewalk.

Difficult words: extravagant (expensive and over the top), prompt (to do something without a delay), food drop box (a place where people can donate food).
