Reading: Celebration
Read the text and answer the questions.

My name is Nick. I was born on a rainy day in July. My mother remembers that it was a surprisingly cold day. That summer my parents decided to stay at home, but in the following years they enjoyed very peaceful and relaxing holidays both in summer and in winter. When I was three years old they decided to do something exceptional: we visited Santa's village in Sweden at Christmas. I was a little boy and I was really impressed. That was a memorable experience. I talked to Santa in person and I played with Santa's helpers: the elves, little creatures with pointed ears. They worked to make toys. I didn't imagine it was all fake. Years later, when my parents informed me that Santa Claus didn't exist, it was very difficult to accept the fact. All my friends already realised that it was their mum and dad who prepared the presents for them on Christmas Eve. I simply refused to accept the truth because I still remembered that trip to Santa's village.
A: When Nick was born, it was a sunny day.
B: His parents enjoyed exciting holidays when he was young.
C: They all visited Sweden when Nick was only four years old.
D: In Sweden they visited Santa Claus's village.
E: That holiday was a memorable experience for Nick.
F: Nick received a present when he was in Sweden.
G: Years later, Nick didn't want to accept the fact that Santa didn't exist.
