We are glad and very gay. We all dance and sing and say: «Merry, merry, Christmas\New Year's Day!» For more British families, this holiday is the most important festival of the year. It combines the celebration the birth of Christ and the traditional festivities of winter. On the Sunday before churches hold carol services. Carol singers can be heard on the street as they collect money for charity. People decorate their houses with a holly wreath and put a fir tree. Children find presents in their stockings.
Five little pumpkins sitting on a gate. The first one said: «It’s getting late! » This holiday means «holy evening». At parties people dress up in strange costumes and pretend they are witches. People make up lamps of pumpkins and other vegetables. Some children dress in white sheets, knock on doors and ask if you would like a «trick or treat». If you give them some money or some sweets, a «treat», they go away. If not, they play a «trick» on you, such as making a lot of noise or splashing water in your face!
The name of this holiday comes from “Eostre”, the Anglo-Saxon goddess of spring. Christians celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ, many people celebrate the beginning of spring. This holiday is celebrated on the first Sunday after the first full moon in spring. That’s why it’s on a different date each year. People dye eggs in various colours. Bunnies, chicks, lambs and flowers are associated with it because they are born in the spring. Egg rolling game is very popular in Wales.
The English celebrate this holiday by burning a dummy, made of straw and old clothes, on a bonfire, at the same time letting of fireworks. This dummy is called a «guy» and children can often be seen on the pavements saying «Penny for the guy». If they collect enough money they can buy some fireworks.
