Christmas is a great Christian holiday. It marks in many countries of the world.
In England Christmas is celebrated on the 25 th of December Christmas is a family holiday
This holiday is connected with Jesus Christ's birth in the city of Veflieme.
When the baby was born the bright star had lighted up in the sky.
Wise men wanted to look at baby Jesus and had brought gifts to him. Since then all people give gifts to each other on Christmas.
Before the holiday people do careful cleaning in their houses. There is a green wreath, many colourful bulbs and garlands on a door of each house In each house there is a decorated fur- tree.
There is a custom to put gifts in the Christmas stocking. At that time told a fairy tale, that « the Christmas grandfather » travelled by air and got into houses through a chimney. Going down in one of houses, it has dropped some gold coins in a stocking which have hung up to be dried above the center. Since then in the Christmas Eve on a fireplace began to hang out « stockings in hope, that there something will fall off ». And now on the eve of Christmas children hang up a Christmas stocking that Santa Claus has filled with its gifts on a fireplace.
Traditional Christmas dishes in England are the baked turkey with a potato, a sweet pie with a stuffing, the traditional Christmas pudding and a Christmas fruit pie.
