Part 2

Reading Comprehension

Time: 15 minutes

Task I

Read the text below. The text has 4 sections. For each section choose the correct heading A-E. There is one heading that does not suit any of the paragraphs.

A. The creator of the Christmas card

B. The place of creation

C. Displeasure of some people

D. The ancestor of the Christmas card

E. The description of the first Christmas card.

1. Today, we send millions of Christmas cards every year. But in fact the Christmas card is a relatively modern invention. In the Middle Ages, European wood engravers produced prints with religious themes. But the first real Christmas card, as we understand the term today, was designed in London, England in 1840. It went on sale in 1843.

2. The designer was John Callcott Horsley, a well known British painter and member of the Royal Academy. He designed the card at the suggestion of his friend Sir Henry Cole, who was the first director of the Victoria & Albert Museum. Horsley produced 1,000 cards and offered them for sale at 1s (one shilling) each.

3. They were printed on stiff card and coloured by hand, with the greeting: “A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to You”. The card showed three pictures: in the centre, a family party; to one side the hungry receiving food; to the other side the poor being clothed. Puritans immediately denounced the card, since it showed people drinking in the family party. But with most people the idea was a great success and the Christmas card quickly became very popular.

4. Christmas cards were not the first greetings cards. Since 1796, with the improvements in printing, merchants had been sending cards to their customers offering “best wishes” for the new year. In many countries, Christmas cards gradually became even more popular than New Year's cards.

Task II

Read the text again. For questions 5-13 decide if these statements are true (T), false (F) or the statement is not stated (NS).

5. The Christmas card dates back to the Middle Ages.

6. The first real Christmas card was designed in England in 1940.

7. The designer of the card was Sir Henry Cole.

8. John Callcott Horsley produced ten hundred cards.

9. The cards were very cheap.

10. Puritans were the first buyers of Christmas cards.

11. The first Christmas card was a great success with all British people.

12. New Year’s cards became more popular than Christmas cards in many countries.

13. Christmas cards were the first greeting cards.
