My favourite day of the week is Thursday, because I don’t work on Friday, so for me the weekend begins on Thursday night. My favourite month is July, because it’s the month when I have my holiday. My favourite season is spring. One of my hobbies is gardening and my garden is really beautiful in the spring. My favourite public holiday is Christmas. My family live very far away, and it’s the only time when I can see them.-<br />Udom<br />My favourite time of the day is the morning, because I get up early and feel full of energy. My favourite day of the week is Friday because it’s the end of the week and I can go home for the weekend. My favourite month is December, because here in Thailand it’s when you can see a lot of flowers. My favourite season is winter because in winter it’s a nice temperature and it’s when I feel comfortable. The summer here is very hot. My favourite public holiday is the Thai New Year in April. It’s a water festival, and people throw water to each other and everyone is very happy.-<br /> <br />
