In 2020, I'll be celebrating christmas. For christmas we need a tree with some shiny decorations and we need electricity to light up. We will be using electricity, that we powered by the sound or a solar. We will not be using anymore oils and other things that we are using it now. It will be a future that we can make our own electricity, that we need for the house and other stuffs.
