  1. Hello. I’m Danijela.
    I love celebrations. In addition to birthdays, New Year, Christmas, Easter in my country, believers celebrate the patron saint of their home it is a saint who is celebrated as the protector of the family and home and this celebration is passed from generation to generation.
    I’m upset when I’m bad on test, when I don’t do something good. I calm down when I can correct it, but I always try to give my best when I do something.
    Thank you very much Maestro Sersea.

  3. Hello everyone
    When does your family have special celebrations?
    This is done when a member of our family has a birthday. We also celebrate special national days such as Christmas, Easter, New Year, etc.

    Are your celebrations a little different from your neighbors’ celebrations?
    Well, each neighbor has its particularities during some celebrations but in general the differences are minimal.

    What kinds of things upset you? How do you get calm again?
    I feel upset when something is done incorrectly repeatedly or when it is done with malicious intent. We must be aware of these situations and handle them properly by controlling the annoy and solving the problem.

    Thank you Maestro

  4. When the traditional festivals come, my whole family has special celebrations depending on the specific festival customs. My family’s celebrations have little different from the celebrations of my neighbors because we are belonging to the same ethnic group in a community. Of course, if my neighbor attributes to another ethnic group, their celebrations will be sort of different style from mine.
    As a whole one, my family will celebrate a birthday for any family member with friends, and, on some festival days, even though it is not a special holiday for us, we also have a party to reunite to meet and talk with each other as kind of a lifestyle.
    But during the pandemic period, we decrease the times of reunion to keep health safe according to notices from the related administration departments. Even when we meet together, everybody holds a mask to keep health safe.
    Thanks for your watching.

    American Teens Talk! Amy, almost 13
    I get upset when someone does not listen to me and beats around the bush instead of answering or acknowledging my talk but they themselves talk endlessly. I keep quiet and calm because silence is the best way to get the situation in control.

    1. We celebrate Christmas like everybody we haven’t nothing special.
      In our daily life failure isn’t good so the best way to be calme is to find what you want on time…

  8. Greeting Maestro Sersea
    Personally I feel upset when I saw to someone treating poorly to another person mainly when the people pretend that all is good and it’s well done the damages caused, when they are doing whatever kind of wrongdoings. Something of key importance is to respect to anothers person, and I would prefer to let them knows that all humans beings have legal rights. Although before this kind of situations is good to keep calm.
    Thank you very much
