CHRISTMAS

 The 25th of December is Christmas Day. It’s a happy holiday for many people in different countries. Some week before Christmas English people are busy. They send greeting cards to all their relatives and friends. You can buy Christmas cards in the shops or you can make them. Many children make their cards at school.   People buy a Christmas tree and decorate it with toys, coloured balls and little coloured lights.

On Christmas Eve people put their presents under the tree. When children go to bed, they put their stockings near their beds or above the fireplace . At night Santa Claus comes. He has got a big bag of presents for children. He puts the presents in the children’s stockings above the fireplace.

There is a very big Christmas tree in the centre of London every year, in Trafalgar Square. This is a present from the people of Norway to the people of Great Britain. They send it to Londoners every year and Londoners decorate the Christmas tree.  In the evening before Christmas people like to come to Trafalgar Square to look at the tree. On Christmas Eve streets in London are decorated with multicoloured lights, too.

The shops are very busy at Christmas. People want to buy presents for their family and friends (for their nearest and dearest). And they buy a lot of food and drink for all the Christmas parties. People open their presents on Christmas morning and they all are happy with what they get.

For Christmas lunch people eat turkey, potatoes and green vegetables. Then they have the Christmas pudding. At five o’clock it’s time for tea and Christmas cake. On Christmas people wish the members of their families and friends a merry Christmas.

The day after Christmas is Boxing Day. People usually visit their relatives and friends. They do not work on that day. It’s a rest day.
