Christmas Day, December,25, is probably the most exciting day of the year for most American and English children. They also can give presents to their relatives and friends. People traditionally decorate their Christmas trees with candles, many bells, baubles, tinsel and so on. They always put a star on the top of the Christmas tree. The legend says that at midnight on Christmas Eve evil spirits lose their power for a short time and animals can speak. Many people go to church at midnight on Christmas Eve. They hear the Christmas story and sing carols. Carols are special Christmas songs. Groups of children go from house to house, sing carols and collect money for charity. On Christmas people eat cold meat, turkey, hot mince pies, Christmas cake, fruit and nuts. For dessert they also have Christmas puddings.
At might Father Christmas (Santa Claus) comes with his sack of presents from the North Pole on his flying sleigh, pulled by his 8 reindeer. Children put a mince pie for Father Christmas and carrots for his animals by the fireplace. At Christmas everyone decorates their houses with holly and mistletoe. They hang a mistletoe wreath on the front doors. Its a Christmas tradition for American and British people to kiss their friends and family under the mistletoe. At Christmas everyone says to each other: Merry Christmas!
