Christmas is a religious holiday. On this day people celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. This holiday means the beginning of the new year and the new life.
Christmas Day is the greatest holiday in Europe and USA. It is interesting to visit the shops before this holiday. There are a lot of nice Christmas cards and presents there. One of Christmas traditions is singing carols
And what about Russia? In Russia Christmas is not too much popular like in the USA or Europe. In our country the main holiday is New Year. We celebrate it on the 31st of December. Children wait for Ded Moroz and Snegurochka, who bring presents for them.
And what about Russia? But we have our own symbol of New Year and winter. This is a Snow Man – Snegovik. Children and adults like to make it very much!
Thank you for attention – and Happy New Year!!!
