1 Dashing through the snow
In a one-horse open sleigh O'er 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. Chorus (припев) Jingle bells, jingle bells Jingle all the way, Oh what fun it is to ride In a one-horse open sleigh, 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, We ran into a drifted bank And there we got upset. The story I must tell I went out on the snow And on my back I fell; A gent was riding by He laughed at me as I there sprawling laid But quickly drove away. Now the ground is white, Go it while you're young, Take the girls along And sing this sleighing song. Just bet a bob-tailed bay, Two-forty as his speed, Hitch him to an open sleigh And crack! You'll take the lead.

2 Christmas in Britain

3 is probably the most popular holiday in Great Britain
Christmas Day , December 25, is probably the most popular holiday in Great Britain

4 This Christian holy day is held in honour of the birth of Christ.


6 It is a family holiday. Traditionally all relatives and friends give each other presents.

7 So before Christmas all the department stores and shops are crowded, everybody is choosing a present. In general, people get prepared for this holiday very carefully.

8 People decorate their houses in the traditional way, that is the Christmas trees are set up in houses, in the streets and churches.

9 The Christmas trees are always decorated with fairy lights, angels and small toys. In addition little packets with nuts, candies and special biscuits are hung on the tree.

10 A typical Christmas lunch includes turkey with cranberry sauce and pudding. Every young woman in each household helps to stir the Christmas pudding if she wishes to be married that year. Usually a coin or two are hidden inside the pudding and part of the fun is to see who finds it.

11 Carol singing is an essential part of Christmas
Carol singing is an essential part of Christmas. No church or school is without its carol service. Carols may be traditional or by known composers they can express different feelings. Carols appeared in Christmas history about the fifteenth century. Usually children come around in the evening to the front doors and start singing carols and the people living in these houses give children candies, nuts, pies and so on, to thank them for carol singing.

12 Young children are told that Santa will bring them presents if they are good. Sometimes children write a letter to Santa Claus telling him what present they would like for Christmas.

13 Santa Claus, also called Santa, Father Christmas (in Britain), or Kriss Kringle (in America), or Father Frost (in Russia) is an old man in red clothes and with a long white beard.

14 Santa Claus is supposed to fly about the sky in a sleigh, pulled by reindeer.

15 Santa Claus is thought to live at the North Pole.
Santa is supposed to visit each house on Christmas Eve by climbing down the chimney.
