    Question Please correct my grammar and vocabulary usage?

    Hi, I'm going to share a Santa Claus song video on my facebook but I'm not sure what to say. Should I say "While I've already known the truth about Santa Claus, this song is nevertheless still one of my favourite Christmas songs. "? Would you please correct my grammar and vocabularies here? Thank you.

    Re: Please correct my grammar and vocabulary usage?

    Hi again, I used to have some argument with my facebook friends before. Now I would like to reconcile with them. I am going to post something on my facebook note. Should I say something like this?

    "Christmas is near. It is time for us to show love to each other and reconcile after our past quarrels. Therefore, I decide to apologize if I insulted any of you before."

    Please correct my grammar and vocabulary use. Thanks.

    It's nearly Christmas, a time of peace and goodwill to all people. We may have argued in the past but I would like to apologise for any offence I have caused you. I hope we can all be friends again.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
