Today and always.
EASTER (слайд 6)
Many modern Easter symbols come from ancient time.
The egg was a symbol long before the Christian era.
The Easter bunny (rabbit) is also originated in pre-Christian time.
HALLOWEEN – OCTOBER 31 (слайд 7)
On October 31st British people celebrate Halloween. It is the most colorful and exciting holiday of the year. Its symbols are black cats, bats, skeletons, pirates, etc. People make lantern from pumpkin. They cut out eyes, nose and mouth in the pumpkin. Then they put a candle into it.
Halloween is a time for fun. Children go from house to house with “trick-or-treating”.
