Dear (Friend’s name),
I was very happy to receive your letter last week. In your letter, you asked me about the people and religions in my country. (Describe in your words).
I am happy to say that my country is a multi-racial country where there is religious freedom. It is home to people of different religions. (Explain all about the situation regarding this). The different religious groups have very different practices and religious festivals.
The Buddhists, for instance, observe the first and fifteenth days in the lunar calendar as religious days to offer prayers to Buddha. They go to the temples as early as five in the morning to pray. On these two days, they also fast or observe a vegetarian diet.
As for the Hindu devotees, they celebrate Thaipusam and Deepavali. When making a wish at the temple, they go through the ritual of praying and then breaking a coconut on the ground. Every day, they light a lamp at the altar of the gods as part of the ritual.
The Muslim males must attend prayers at the mosque on Fridays. On other days, both males and females pray five times a day. They do it in such a manner that they face the direction of the holy city of Mecca.
As for the Christians, they attend church for prayer and worship on weekends. Some groups hold Bible classes once a week. they celebrate Christmas in December every year.
I hope I have given you some ideas about the different religious groups in my country. Perhaps, you can tell me about yours in your next letter. Goodbye.
