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!

Getting that for you now...
