Christmas tree In Great Britain the Christmas tree became popular while Queen Victoria ruled the country. Besides the Christmas tree, holly and mustletoe are used to decorate the house.
CHRISTMAS PRESENTS On the Eve of Christmas children hang their stockings, so Santa Claus could put presents into them: sweets, oranges, nuts and if the children didn’t behave properly Santa Claus can put there a piece of coal as punishment.
Santa Claus got his name from a man known as St.Nicolas, who lived in the fourth century. He gave his wealth to the poor and often to children. After he died, the Dutch brought this legend to colonial America. Soon the Dutch name Sinter Klaus became Santa Claus.
HO! HO! HO!
The 26th of December is a Boxing Day.
Jingle bells Dashing through the snow On a one-horse open sleigh, Over the fields we go, Laughing all the way; Bells on bob-tail ring, Making spirits bright, What fun it is to ride and sing A sleighing song tonight. Jingle bells, jingle bells, Jingle all the way! O what fun it is to ride In a one-horse open sleigh.
A day or two ago, I thought I’d take a ride, And soon Miss Fanny Bright Was seated by my side; The horse was lean and lank; Misfortune seemed his lot; He got into a drifted bank, And we, we got upset. Jingle bells, jingle bells, Jingle all the way! O what fun it is to ride In a one-horse open sleigh.
A day or two ago, the story I must tell I went out on the snow And on my back I fell; A gent was riding by In a one-horse open sleigh, He laughed as there I sprawling lie, But quickly drove away.
Now the ground is white Go it while you’re young, Take this girls tonight And sing this sleighing song Just get a bob-tailed bay Two-forty as his speed Hitch him to an open sleigh And crack! You’ll take the lead, O Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle all the way! O what fun it is to ride In one-horse open sleigh.
