Extreme Christmas House – level 2

24-12-2018 07:00

A German couple decorated the outside of their house with a few simple Christmas decorations. The inside of the house, however, is a very different story!

The couple filled their small house with over 100 Christmas trees. They decorated the trees with fairy lights and 16,000 baubles.

They did not always have so many trees. In the beginning, they had a small Christmas collection. As time went on, they grew their collection rapidly.

It takes them 8 weeks to set everything up and they start decorating in early October. They fill every room except the bedroom. They even have a Santa Claus in their bathroom!

Difficult words: fairy lights (small coloured electric lights), bauble (a small Christmas decoration), except (but).

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