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.
The day after Christmas day is Boxing Day, 26th December. On this day children play with toy and adults relax, it is the quite day.
On Christmas people eat roast turkey, cake or Christmas pudding.
I like Christmas, too, but I like Christmas what is celebrated in our family.
