이 영어에세이는 미국 유펜(University of Pennsylvania)에서 연수를 하며 받았던 writing 수업 과제였습니다. 첨삭까지 완벽히 끝낸 에세이입니다. 이 글의 주제는 인생에서의 특별한 기억이나 경험 입니다.
My family thinks that the most important thing in life is to have love in our family.
For performing this philosophy, we always celebrate our events like family members`
birthdays, Valentine`s day, and also Christmas. Therefore, I have a lot of memories about
our celebrations, but I have one very special memory about Santa on Christmas day in my
childhood. It is very special to me because I could feel my parents` love through this event.
Until I was five years old, I strongly believed that there was Santa and he always
gave me presents that I wished for. However, I became confused when I saw my parents
preparing my Christmas presents. At first, when I saw that, I thought that Santa was so busy
that he told my parents to prepare my presents, but it made me more confused when my
parents said Santa had prepared for me on Christmas morning. Even if I saw my parents
preparing my presents, they said that to me, so I totally could not believe the existence of
Santa, and also I became very cynical about Santa. However, there was an event that made
me much more confused. It was when I was seven years old that Santa came to my house.
Before Santa came to my house, I had a very negative attitude about Santa.
