There are many holidays in our country. They are New Year Day, Victory Day, Christmas and others. I'd like to tell you about my favorite holiday - New Year's Day. Peter the First changed the Rus-sian calendar. The first of January 1700 became New Year Day. The weather is usually fine and there is a lot of snow everywhere. Children don't go to school because winter holidays. We usually have got very interesting party at school.
Our family prepares for this holiday before hand. My father buys and brings home a beautiful New Year's Tree. I like to decorate the Tree with toys, little colored lights, sweets and stars. My mother and grandmother prepare our holidays supper. I make a cake. We like to see the New Year in at home with our relatives. At 12 o'clock we are sitting at the table and say "Best wishes for the New Year". The New Year is always connected with our new plans and dreams. It is a pleasant moment to get presents on the New Year. At night we watch TV, dance, make jokes and go for a walk with my friends. I enjoy this holiday very much.
