Here's a preview of the text for the writing challenge, when you're ready click the start button above:

On the 24th of December, my family gathers at my grandparents' house around 6pm. The adults help in the kitchen, and my brother and I play with our cousins. Then, we sit around the table, and we eat together. I always have (some) salmon, but I don't like oysters! The meal lasts several hours, and around midnight, after (the) dessert, we go into the living room and we can finally open our presents!

Clever stuff happening!
