1. second-holiday = you do not need a hyphen there
Don't forget the ending period on several sentences.
7. After lunch we played bingo with prizes prepared all year around (???) = all year long.
Just decide whether you want the first word or the word in parentheses. Either would be correct.
9. There is that who (nominative/subjective) vs. whom (accusative/objective) problem again! Who = Whom (because religious orders is the subject of the verb)
