New Years Day New Years Day celebrates the start of a new year. The celebration begins on December 31 New Years Eve, the night before New Years Day. I like New Years Eve because my parents allow me to stay up the whole night. Our family prepares for this holiday before hand. My father buys and brings home a New Years Tree at the end of December.
I like to decorate a New Years Tree with toys, little colored lights, sweets and a beautiful star on the top. My mother and grandmother prepare our holiday supper and lay the table. We like to see the New Year in at home with our relatives. At 12 oclock we are sitting at the table we say, Best wishes for the New Year! Happy New Year! I usually get many presents on the New Years Eve. We dont go to bed till morning, we watch TV, dance, eat tasty things and make jokes, and sing a song The Fir – Tree was born in the forest.
В лесу родилась ёлочка В лесу родилась ёлочка, В лесу она росла, Зимой и летом стройная, Зелёная была! Трусишка – зайка серенький, Под ёлочкой скакал, Порою волк сердитый волк, Рысцою пробегал.
A fir was born in a deep wood And in the wood grew tall. And there in all the seasons she stood The greenest tree of all. The snowstorm wished the fir good night And sang her lullabies. The Frost enwrapped her in snow and said, > The fir to our party has come, On this winter night And brought such joy to everyone - Oh, what a lovely sight.
In Great Britain, the New Year is not as widely celebrated as Christmas. But there is a funny tradition connected with the New Year: the First Foot. Traditionally the First Foot should cross the threshold with a lump of coal and silver coins in his hands to ensure the wellbeing of the family for the coming year. Coal helps to make a fire in midwinter, and there shall never be lack of food and drink during the coming year. The First Foot must be a man not a woman. Its a good thing if he is a tall, dark – hared, and handsome man.
D ashing through the snow, In a one – horse open sleigh Over the field we go, Laughing all the way. Bells on bobtail ring Making spirits bright What fun it is to ride and sing A sleighing song tonight Jingle, bells! Jingle, bells! Jingle all the way. Oh, what fun it is to ride In a one – horse open sleigh.
