Model Answer: 
I often visit my hometown where my parents and other family members live whenever there are occasions or I get holidays. I would like to talk about my younger sister’s birthday celebration that I attended one year back. It was strictly a family celebration as no other relatives, neighbours were invited and only our family members celebrated this occasion.

Before the celebration, my mother and the younger sister asked me if I would be able to join the party or not. Since it was just the beginning of my semester, I had been able to manage time to attend the occasion.

The celebration took place at our house at (…say your hometown name...). This was a kind of family reunion and the occasion was my younger sister’s 16 the birthday. I was excited to join the celebration as all of my family members including the newborn of my eldest sister would also be there. It had not been able to visit my family for few months and that was a perfect opportunity to meet my family members and spend some enjoyable and quality times with them.

I was thinking to buy a digital camera to my younger sister and that was a perfect occasion to buy her the gift as I had the budget to purchase the camera. I bought it before I left home and my sister was very excited to have it as her birthday gift. Celebrations like birthdays are always important in our family as it allows us to get together and spend few days together. As two of my sisters were married and lived in two different cities, they also attend such occasions and we all enjoy our stay together. From this perspective, this was an important occasion for us.
