My best day during the holiday.

Holiday is the most perfect time of the year. Not going to school for more than two months makes them such great. My parents went to the small city near the see so I stayed at home with my sister.

She found "that combination of faith and morality, sincerity and naivete, was everything" her "Old-World preconceptions had" led her to expect (9). She also takes time to compare her American experience to Israeli equivalents that she was used to. I agree ...
