What happens at Christmas?

We looked at a photo taken a long time ago. It was of people walking on the beach at Christmas time. There were lots of people. Going to the beach was a special thing to do because it was harder to travel there than it is now because not many people had a car. Also people didn't have much time off during the year to play at the beach.

We think that we are lucky because it is easy to go to the beach and it doesn't take long to drive there or we can go by train if we wanted to. Lots of us visit the beach often but we don't go on Christmas Day.
