Written by student: Davidov D. Teacher : Kolobova L. M. SECONDARY SCHOOL 90 SHALYA 2009
Name Denis ( from Dionysus or Dionysos), is the god of wine, the inspirer of ritual madness and ecstasy, and a major figure of Greek mythology, and one of the twelve Olympians. The geographical origins of his cult were unknown to the classical Greeks, but almost all myths depicted him as having "foreign" origins: typical of the god of the epiphany, "the god that comes". He was also known as Bacchus. He is the patron of agriculture and the theatre. He was also known as the Liberator (Eleutherios), freeing people from madness, ecstasy, or wine. Scholars have discussed Dionysus' relationship to the "cult of the souls" and his ability to preside over communication between the alive and the dead.
My last name, Davidov, was derived from the ancient king of Israel, David and originated in Russia, where people received their last names during the first population census in In ancient times people did not have surnames, but were simply named: son of.... For example, if your fathers name was David, you would be son of David. Later on they changed this to Davidov, -ov meaning of or son of. Therefore my last name literally means son of David. This name from the Hebrew personal name David beloved, was given in honor of the Biblical king of this name, the greatest of the early kings of Israel. His prominence and the vivid narrative of his life is contained in the First Book of Samuel, led to adoption of the name in various parts of Europe. Its popularity in Russia due to the fact that this was the ecclesiastical name adopted by St. Gleb (died 1015), one of two sons of Prince Vladimir of Kiev.
Russian language has always been one of the widely spoken languages not only in Russia but in the whole world. According to the recent researches, with more than 500 million Russian-language speakers, it is the world third most commonly spoken language after Chinese (more than 1 billion speakers) and English (750 million). It is one of the official or working languages in many international organizations (UNO, UNESCO, IAEA ).
New Year's Day I like New Year's Day, it is my favourite holiday. The 1st of January is a winter holiday and now it is the first day of the New Year. Our family prepares for this holiday beforehand. My stepfather brings home a beautiful New Year's tree at the end of December. Our family has a tradition to buy it. I like to decorate the New Year's tree with toys, little coloured lights, sweets and a beautiful star on the top. My mother and grandmother prepare our holiday supper and lay the table. All the members of our family clean the flat before this nice holiday and then each of us try to dress well. We like to see the New Year in at home with our relatives. They come to see us at 11 o'clock in the evening. At 12 o'clock we are sitting at the table and we are glad to see the New Year in. We say, "Best wishes for the New Year!" I hope that next year will be better than the last one. The New Year's Day is always connected with our new hopes and dreams. It is a pleasant moment to get presents on the New Year's Eve. I usually get many nice useful things from my parents and relatives. My parents put their presents under the New Year's tree. We don't go to bed till morning, we watch TV, dance, eat tasty things and make jokes. I enjoy this holiday very much.
