Well obviously this isn't very persuasive now is it? :) What you can do so you get at least 8 sentences is put in more detail to eating, sleeping and opening presents. For example you can write about how you ate your favorite holiday food and you were able to savor the flavor of the foods. You can write how you were able to catch up on sleep after a few months of hard work. Also how you were able to sleep in and not have to wake up very early. As for presents, you can write how you were curious to know what was behind the gift wraps or bags and how you enjoyed opening presents with your family. If you need me to review your paragraph, then feel free to message me or post it here.
