There are many holidays in Britain, on which different traditions are observed. One of such holidays is St. Valentine’s day. On that day the Englishmen send to people they love. Some people draw hearts, roses and Cupid with an arrow on them. But almost all of Valentine cards say “Be my Valentine”. In Great Britain it is a holiday of love and friendship.
Easter is a grand festival of Christians and is celebrated to honor the resurrection of Lord Jesus, the son of mother Mary. It is a festivity of happiness and joy, as it was in the Easter springtime when people had witnessed Jesus' return to life. In the morning, men and women dressed up in their special Easter outfits go to the church. Houses are decorated with beautiful lilies, candles are lit. Special dishes are prepared in the honor of Lord Jesus. Easter lamb is always on the table. At certain places, carnivals and parades take place. In these parades, people wearing special costumes can be spotted. Mardi Gras parade held in North America is famous. As a part of Easter customs, Easter egg painting competitions are held. Easter egg hunt is the favorite kids' fun time activity. People eat hot cross buns and kids enjoy their jellybeans.
During the Easter springtime kids love to sing in various singing competitions. The most famous Easter song is called Easter Bunny - by M. Josephine Todd Let’s sing it. There's a story quite funny, About a toy bunny, And the wonderful things she can do; Every bright Easter morning, Without warning, She colors eggs, red, green, or blue. Some she covers with spots, Some with quaint little dots, And some with strange mixed colors, too Red and green, blue and yellow, But each unlike his fellow Are eggs of every hue. And it's odd, as folks say, That on no other day In all of the whole year through, Does this wonderful bunny, So busy and funny, Color eggs of every hue.
