313. Describe the most beautifully wrapped present you've ever seen. Detail every aspect of the outside of it, along with its weight and what you think is inside.

315. Create a conversation between two neighboring houses that are covered in lights on X-Mas Eve. How do the lights make them feel and are they excited about the upcoming holiday?

318. Imagine that three wise men knocked on your door and stayed with your family to eat dinner. What would the wise men and your family talk about? Where would these three brilliant wanderers be off to and why?
