Sample Answer:
Well, this is a very nice topic for me and I would love to talk about one of my most memorable childhood events that I had with my family members.
The celebration was to welcome a new guest in our family- my nephew who was born on that day. My eldest sister gave birth of a beautiful and healthy baby boy on that particular day. I was around 8 years old then.

After my father saw the newborn baby for the first time, he declared that this is a special occasion for us. As this is the first baby in our family, he decided that the occasion must be celebrated to welcome the new guest in our family. The event and the celebration both took place in our house which is in Danville.

As soon as my father affirmed that we would celebrate this very special day, every one of our family got busy for the arrangement. My parents went to invite guests and to do some necessary shopping. I was so happy and excited that I also called some of my friends to enjoy the event. I wanted to be near the newborn baby all the time and when my mother told me to give some time to the mother and baby alone, I felt quite sad and depressed. I could not believe that such a beautiful baby is my nephew and I wanted to touch him and play with him all the time. However, the sad feeling was so momentary in this case and I forgot it in few minutes. Then I started playing and gossiping with my friends who by the meantime have come to visit us.

It was a different day – in terms of happiness, amazement and celebration. The arrival of a gorgeous baby and a huge celebration to welcome the event brought us unbound happiness and reasons to smile. My mother, with her sister, cooked many delicious dishes and we enjoyed the foods with so many friends and relatives. The large cake that my elder brother bought from a pastry shop was another delight and surprise for us.

This was a very happy event for all our family members, close friends, neighbours and relatives. I still remember this special family event very vividly for the immense joy and happiness it brought for us.
