1. In Wales it never gets very hot or very cold. May, June, July and August are the sunniest and driest months, but even in the winter a raincoat and sweater will usually cope with the worst that the weather has to offer.

2. The land area is just over 8,000 square miles and Wales measures 160 miles long by 60 miles wide. Wales has extensive tracts of high plateau with mountain ranges. The lowland area is confined mainly to the relatively narrow coastal belts and the valley floors. Snowdon is the highest mountain at 3,650 feet.

3. Wales has a wealth of holiday cottages and private hotels, renowned for their hospitality. But visitors should get advice before walks and climbs in mountainous areas when the weather is uncertain. Wales has a mountain rescue service but let's allow them to enjoy their day off. Parents with young children should take care when visiting the ancient castles of Wales. Moats, battlements and dungeons weren't designed to be visitor friendly.

4. The Welsh flag has two equal horizontal stripes, white above green, and a large red dragon passant. The daffodil and the leek are also famous emblems of Wales.

Read the text and answer the following question. Choose the correct variant

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.
