7 British holidays, traditions and customes.

8 New Year There are a number of holidays, which are celebrated in Great Britain every year. One of them is, of course, New Year's Day on the first of January. It is not so popular in England as in our country, but it is rather popular in Scotland. On that day people usually visit their friends and there is a lot of dancing and eating. In Scotland people bring a piece of coal for good luck in the New Year.

9 New Years Eve all British celebrate on the 31st of December. Most people see with friends and relatives. At midnight on New Years Eve, every body joins hands and sings New Year songs and wishes their nearest and dearest a happy New Year.

10 In Scotland and the North of England there is an interesting tradition called The First Foot. The first visitor who comes into a house in the New Year morning is the First Foot. If he is with dark hair and a man or a boy, he will bring good luck. He must have some food, some money or a coal for the fire. The First Foot

11 St.Valentines Day. St.Valentines Day has roots in several legends. Cupid, the Roman god of love, is one of the earliest popular symbols of the day. Valentine was a Christian priest. He lived 300 years after the death of Jesus Christ in the Roman Empire. On February 14 Valentine was killed because he was a Christian. He married couples contrary to the lows of the Roman Empire. St.Valentines Day is now a day for sweethearts. Most people send valentines, sentimental and heartfelt greetings cards.

12 День святого Валентина. Истоки Дня святого Валентина лежат в нескольких легендах. Купидон, римский бог любви,- один из ранних популярных символов. Валентин был по христиански священником. Он жил в Римской империи через триста лет после смерти Иисуса Христа. Сейчас День святого Валентина – день всех влюбленных. Многие посылают « валентинки», сентиментальные и прочувствованные поздравительные открытки.

27 Stonehenge.


29 Midsummers Day, June 24 th is longest day of the years. On that day a very old custom at Stonehenge in Wiltshire, England, is observed. Stonehenge is one of the Europes biggest stone circles that is 10 or 12 meters high. The earliest part of Stonehenge is approximately 5,000 years old. But what was Stonehenge? A holy place? A market? Or kind of calendar? Actually the Druids priests in Britain used Stonehenge for a calendar.

30 Stonehenge. They introduced it about 2,000 years ago. The sun stones at Stonehenge let the Druids know when the months and seasons start. On the morning of June 24 th the sun shines on one famous stone - the Hell Stone, this is the most important moment of the years for the Druids. There are Druids in Britain today, too, and every June a lot of them attend Stonehenge. It is a strange, ancient, rare but still living custom.

31 Thanksgiving Day Thanksgiving is always on the 4 th Thursday of November. People work a lot before the holiday. Dad usually buys the turkey. Mum stuffs the bird with herbs and bread. Then she roasts it. Its important not to burn the bird. We celebrate Thanks-giving in the family circle. First, we have a church service. Then we have a traditional Thanksgiving dinner: A roast turkey, potatoes, and popcorn. For dessert we prefer a pumpkin pie with vanilla ice cream.

32 Thanksgiving Day 1.In the USA Thanksgiving Day started as a holiday of thanksgiving in the early days of the American colonies about 400 years ago. 2.In 1620, a boat with more than 100 people sailed across the Atlantic Ocean to the New World to what is now the state of Massachusetts. 3.Their first winter was very difficult and without fresh food half the colony died. 4.The Native Americans showed them how to grow corn, a new food for colonists, they showed them how to hunt and fish. 5.In the autumn of 1621, bountiful crops of corn, beans and pumpkins were picked up. 6.The colonists had much to be thankful for. They invited the local Indians to a Thanksgiving dinner. In the following years, many of the original colonists celebrated the autumn crops with a holiday of thanks. After the United States became an independent country, Congress introduced one Day of Thanksgiving Day for the whole nation to celebrate. Its observed on the 4 th Thursday of November.

33 Thanksgiving Day. 1.What did the colonists give thanks for? 2.What role did the local Indians play? 3.Who introduced the national holiday of Thanksgiving in the USA? 4.In honour of what event would you like to introduce the holiday of Thanksgiving.

34 Праздник благодарения. 1.В США День благодарения образовался как праздник благодарности, с ранних дней американских колоний – около 400 лет назад. 2.В 1620 году корабль с более чем сотней людей на борту пересек Атлантический океан к Новому Свету, к месту, где сейчас штат Массачусетс. 3.Первая зима была очень трудной, и без еды половина колонии вымерла. 4.Коренные американцы показали им, как выращивать кукурузу, новую пищу для колонистов, как охотиться и ловить рыбу. 5.Осенью 1621 года были собраны щедрые урожаи кукурузы, бобов и тыкв. 6.Колонистам было за что благодарить. Они пригласили индейцев на благодарственный обед.В последующие годы многие из первых колонистов отмечали осенний урожай праздником благодарения. После того как Соединенные Штаты стали независимым государством, конгресс ответил один день для праздника благодарения для всей нации. Его отмечают в четвертый четверг ноября.

35 There is a funny tradition, connected with New Year : the First Foot. This is the first visitor to enter a house on New Year morning. The First Foot must be a man because it is bellieved that if a woman first sets foot in the house, bad luck will follow hroughout the year. The first visitor must food,drink and coal into the house. They are symbols of good luck. First Foot.

43 How you have made a surprise. It was my mother `s birthday. In the morning my parents went to my Granny. My sister Sveta and I tidied up our flat. We decorated it with bows and ribbons. When our parents came home and saw it they were surprised. In front of the boor there hang a poster «Happy Birthday, Mother». We put the candles on the cake and Mother blew them up. She was very happy.

44 Как я удивил. У мамы был день рожденья. С утра родители поехали к бабушке. Я и моя сестра Света убрались в квартире. Мы украсили её бантами и лентами. Когда родители вернулись и увидели, они были очень удивлены. Напротив двери висел плакат: «С днём рождения, Мама». Мы воткнули свечи в торт, и мама их задула. Она была счастлива.

45 I love many holidays especially New Year. Also I carefully prepare for it, I buy gifts, cards and other trifles. I like this holiday because I can meet all people which to me are dear. It is good occasion to gather all family. I like to receive gifts and to give their most. I and my younger brother help mum to cook different tasty food. When all visitors come we sit down a table. At we usually go to start fireworks. And when all again I collect behind a table we recollect all good, that was in the past to year.

46 Я люблю многие праздники особенно Новый Год. Также я тщательно готовлюсь к нему, покупаю подарки, открытки и прочие мелочи. Мне нравится этот праздник потому что я могу встретиться со всеми людьми которые мне дороги. Это хороший повод собраться всей семьей. Мне нравится получать подарки и дарить их самому. Мы с мои младшим братом помогаем маме готовить разную вкусную еду. Когда приходят гости все мы садимся за стол. В обычно мы идем запускать фейерверки. А когда все опять собираются за столом, мы вспоминаем все хорошее, что было в прошлом году. Мой любимый праздник.
