Hi Mark!
How are you? It’s such a long time since we met, friend! Are doing something interesting in this period? I am having a good time, my friends who lives abroad are back home for a few and I am having fun with them. 
It’s 17th March today: St. Patrick’s Day. It’s a special day here and a national holiday. Irish people wear a shamrock, a kind of green plant with small leaves. It’s the symbol of Ireland.
Do you have special days? Why do you have them? What special things do people do on these days? Tell me about them… I’m very curious!
I hope to receive your news very soon.

Best wishes
