Here are more questions the students from Grove Primary School asked us.

During Christmas, in all the movies, they always have snow and pine trees in the house and dogs running around, and lots of presents. Is that really true over there? Because here it's always hot during Christmas. Do you eat a lot of Chinese food? What other kinds of food do you eat?

Do you have Guy Fawkes Day? (Note: Guy Fawkes Day, observed in England and in many former English colonies on November 5th every year, commemorates a failed attempt to blow up England's Houses of Parliament in 1605. Angry with King James I, a group of conspirators, led by Guy Fawkes, rolled 36 barrels of gunpowder under Parliament. They were caught and executed, and the event is celebrated today with fireworks and bonfires.)

What is Independence Day? Is that like Guy Fawkes Day?

What languages do you speak?

Why do you celebrate Thanksgiving?
