By dinner time the whole family is gathered round the table. They have a big turkey and a
Christmas pudding. They eat the pudding very carefully because traditionally a silver coin is placed
into the pudding. It brings good luck to a person who finds it. A carol is a Christmas song. People
often sing carols on Christmas Eve in streets or at home.

stockings. In the evening of the 24 th of December children hang their Christmas stockings on their

The first visitor is a man. According to the ancient tradition he carries a piece of coal – to wish
warmth, a piece of bread – to wish food and a silver coin – to wish wealth. At 12 o’clock people
