Every country has its own customs
and traditions. English people are proud of their traditions and they keep them
It is difficult to speak about
England without speaking about its holidays. Christmas Day is among them.
All English people celebrate
Christmas (or X-mas) on the 25th of December.
Christmas! What kind of holiday is
it? It is the yearly celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ. It falls on
December 25 by the Catholic Church and on the 7th of January by the Orthodox
Church. This holiday means the beginning of the new year and the new life.
English people celebrate this holiday with the evergreen tree - Christmas tree.
Children put a long sock, called a Christmas stocking at the end of their beds
and Santa Claus comes down the chimney to bring them presents.
Christmas Day is the greatest
holiday in England. It is interesting to visit the shops before this holiday.
There are a lot of nice Christmas cards and presents there. English people like
this holiday very much and prepare for it beforehand. They buy presents for
each other, try to send Christmas cards for their relatives and friends.
It is interesting to visit London
during this holiday. There is a Christmas tree in Trafalgar Square. We can see
many lights, toys and sweets all over this tree. Everywhere you can see slogans
"A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year".
The traditional English dinner on
Christmas is turkey and pudding.
