  Lesson 24 At Christmas Time

  Text A

  Many people like to decorate their houses at Christmas time. They decorate the inside of the house and the outside too. Inside they usually decorate a Christmas tree and the fireplace,if there is one. Outside they place wreaths, ribbons,and coloured lights on the door and windows. If there is a tree in front of their house, they place colored lights on it too.

  In New York City, there is a very tall, beautifully decorated

  Christmas tree in Rockefeller Center at Christmas time. In Washington, there is also a big decorated tree in front of the White House. People come from many cities to admire the trees and the gaily decorated store windows on the principal avenues of large cities.

  Question on Text B

  7. Read the following passage once. Underline the key words while reading and retell the story to your partner.

  Going to the Theater

  If you want to be certain of seeing a play in London, you have to book your seat in advance. You can buy your tickets either at a Theatre Ticket Agency or at the Box Office in the theatre itself. tt is very rarely that you will be lucky enough to get a ticket five minutes before the play begins.

  If you go in a large party it is not always possible for all of you to sit in the same part of the theatre. Some will have to sit in the Stalls, others in the Dress Circle and some in the Upper Circie. These seats are the least expensive of the three. Seats in a Box or the Front Stalls are the most expensive.
