Every country has different holidays with many customs and traditions. One of the most important public occasions in my country is the Victory Day that is connected with our history. It was introduced in 1945. It is widely celebrated on the 9th of May. This patriotic holiday marks the victory of the USSR over the Nazi Germany. Every year in honour of this day people enjoy beautiful parades and colourful fireworks. But May 9 is a sad day for the majority of our population because many people have lost their loved friends and close relatives during this ruthless war.

The Christmas Tree



No one knows for sure who decorated the first Christmas tree. The custom of bringing an evergreen tree indoors and decorating it at Christmas started in Germany. One legend says that Martin Luther started the practice. Luther was an important Christian leader. According to the story, he noticed the starlit sky as he walked home one Christmas Eve about the year 1513. He thought the stars looked as if they were shining on the branches. When he arrived home, Martin Luther placed a small fir tree inside his house. He decorated it with lighted candles.

Decorating Christmas trees became popular in Germany. Prince Albert of Sachsen-Coburg-Gotha, the German husband of Queen Victoria, took the tradition to England. Both German and English people brought it to America. And now nearly every family in Great Britain and the USA has a Christmas tree.

The biggest Christmas tree in Britain is put up in Trafalgar Square in London. The people of Norway still give this tree every year to the British people to thank them for helping Norway against Hitler in the Second World War.
