Going home after midnight – It was a cold December morning,
two days before Christmas. When I looked at my wristwatch, it was
almost 1 a.m. I had to hurry home because my aunt didn’t know I
had (1.sneak) ……………....… out of the house to meet my friends.
We were out singing carols. We would walk from house to house
singing Christmas songs. In exchange for our good tidings, each
(2.house) ……..………… would give us a little present.
One night, we were requested to sing at the Christmas party hosted
by a rich man. Upon receiving the invitation, we were (3.joy)
……….….…….–really excited. So my friends and I thoroughly
rehearsed the Christmas songs that our host wanted to hear. At the
party, we sang Joy to the World, Carol of the Bells, Silent Night,
and The Christmas Song. After each song, the audience broke into
(4.applaud) ……….…….. Everybody, especially the host, enjoyed
our performance. Afterwards, he offered us fine food and a

experience. First, life is funny and (9.predict) ………..………….

You simply have to roll with the punches. Second, I would no
longer sneak out of the house late at night and put my own safety at
