Who can give me a correction of this english text?
Dear Sandra,

At first thank you for all information you have send to me at your last e-mail. I was very pleased to hear this good news. But why do you make so much overtime at Christmas. May it's better if you wouldn't spend all your money for parcels and other Christmas stuff. Some years ago I also hat this problem because my whole family and all my friends have given me a sign. Now I know that they only wanted to be polite and wanted to show me their love. But when I was younger I saw it like an obligation. I recommend you to avoid the big expensive things. People who love you don't expect huge parcels, the only want to know that you haven't forgot them. Within the family it's also comment to give something with is self-made. On the other hand you also have to take care about the hidden traps at shops. May you don't understand what I'm talking about, because many people don't see the tricks of business managers. If you remind to your last purchase you'll recognize that the whole atmosphere is so astonishing and friendly that a shopping tour at Christmas is like being in the factory of Santa Clause. All the songs and Christmas stuff in the windows gives you the feeling of being welcome. Therefore it's much easier to spend much more money than planned for useless stuff. It's a misbelieve that products are accidentally on their place. The whole assortment is manipulated. All the fruits are sorted and combineted with other fruits, which enforce the beautifulness of their color and make them looking more delicious. Mostly theire are mirrors on the walls to multiplicate the fruits. You'll get the impression to be in front of hundreds of good smelling and beautiful bananas and apples, which are looking hypnotically. I recommend you to close your eyes and run as fast as you can when see some fruits. No, just a joke but if you want to spare money you should know that there are often many tricks behind them. My personal rule is to write a shopping list because then you only buy the things on your list.

Dear Sandra,
At first thank you for all the information in your last e-mail. I was very pleased to hear this good news. But why do you make so much overtime at Christmas. Maybe it's better if you wouldn't spend all your money for parcels and other Christmas stuff. Some years ago I also had this problem because my whole family and all my friends *have given me a sign* = ???. Now I know that they only wanted to be polite and show me their love. But when I was younger I saw it as an obligation. I recommend you to avoid the big expensive things. People who love you don't expect huge parcels, the only want to know that you haven't forgotten them. Within the family it's also comment to give something with is self-made.

All the fruits are sorted and combined with other fruits, which enforce the beauty of their color and make them look more delicious. And often there are mirrors on the walls to multiplicate the fruits. You'll get the impression to be in front of hundreds of fragrant and beautiful bananas and apples, which look hypnotic. I recommend you to close your eyes and run as fast as you can when you see those fruits ... only kidding, but if you want to spare money you should know that there are often many tricks behind them. My personal rule is to write a shopping list because then you only buy the things on your list.

Is this homework?
I didn't understand the bit about "friends and family gave me the sign".
Hope this helps.

Dear Sandra,

Firstly, thank-you for your last e-mail. I was very pleased to hear the good news.

Why do you do so much overtime at Christmas?

Maybe, it would be better, if you didn't spend all your money on presents and other Christmas stuff.
Some years ago, I too had this problem, my whole family and all my friends told me, I know that they meant to be caring and loving. However, when I was younger, I saw this as an obligation. I therefore recommend, that you to avoid the big, expensive gifts. People who love you, don't expect huge presents, they just want to know that they haven't been forgotten. Within the family, something that has been hand-made, is often appreciated.

On the other hand, you have to beware of the hidden traps in shops. Many don't understand what I'm talking about, as many people are unaware of the tricks that managers use.

If you recall the last purchase you made. You'll remember that the whole atmosphere, was so astonishingly friendly. That a shopping trip at Christmas, was like being in Santa Claus's factory. All the carols and Christmas stuff on display, gives you a feeling of being welcome. Thus, it's easier to spend more, than you planned, on useless stuff.

It's a misbelief, that products are unintentionally placed. The whole atmosphere has been manipulated. All the fruits are sorted and combined with other fruits, that re-enforces the beauty of their colour, making them look more delicious. Often there are mirrors on the walls, to multiply the fruits, giving you the impression of being in front of hundreds of pleasant smelling and beautiful bananas and apples, that can look hypnotic. I recommend that you to close your eyes and run as fast as you can when see some fruits. Just joking!

However, if you want to save money, you need to be aware of these tricks. My personal rule is to make a shopping list, because then, you'll only buy the things on your list.

I hope that this wasn't a homework assignment.
