Christmas in Britain

Christmas is the most important and popular festival in Britain celebrated in December. People in Britain and other English speaking countries start to celebrate X-mas on 25th December in the morning when unwrapping present. This day is called Christmas day.

On 24th December children hang a stocking at the end of the bed or on the mantelpiece of the fireplace. There is a legend about Father Christmas: Children believe that he lives at the North Pole and that he brings them presents on Christmas Eve. Father Christmas arrives on a sleigh drawn by reindeers. The main reindeer is called Rudolph. Father X-mas comes down chimney and gives children presents. Parents usually leave a goblet of whisky on the fireplace for Father X-mas. This day is called Christmas Eve, 24th December.

On Christmas Day people have a festive dinner, usually around 2 pm. People eat roast turkey with roasted potatoes followed by Christmas pie and Christmas pudding.
