Trees and Presents
  • People began to celebrate Christmas many, many years ago. They began to decorate the evergreen tree and give presents to each other. They placed a large shining star at the top of the Christmas tree and many bright shining balls (red, blue, yellow, green, silver) from top to bottom.
Boxing Day
  • Boxing day comes after Christmas Day. It is on the 26th of December. People do not go to work on that day. They visit friends or go to the theatre. Everybody gives and receives Christmas cards and Christmas boxes.
Christmas Stockings
  • In the evening of the 24th of December children hang their Christmas stockings on fireplaces, on their beds, put them under the Christmas tree. Father Christmas (Santa Claus) puts presents into them. A Christmas stocking is not a real stocking. It is big and beautifully decorated.
Christmas Pudding
  • Christmas pudding was firstly made many, many years ago. Now it is the highlight of Christmas dinner. Children often put holly on the pudding. Traditionally a coin is placed into the pudding. It brings good luck to a person who finds it.
  • Holly is an evergreen plant with sharp-pointed leaves and red berries. You already know that people put holly on Christmas pudding. They also use holly to decorate their homes. It is a very old tradition. Long ago people began to put holly in their homes during the dark cold winters. They liked to look at holly and think about the spring and the sun.
  • Mistletoe is an evergreen plant with small leaves and small white berries. On Christmas Eve there is a bunch of mistletoe in every house. Under this bunch boys kiss girls.
  • People usually decorate their doors with wreath.
  • Many years ago postmen had bright red coats. They looked like robins. At Christmas they brought many Christmas cards. And people began to think about a robin as a Christmas bird. You can see it on almost every Christmas card.
Candles and Crackers
  • On Christmas Eve people like to light candles. If there are children in the family, they often have Christmas crackers. When you pull a cracker it makes a bang and inside there is usually a Christmas hat, a small toy and a piece of paper with a joke on it.
Christmas Flags

Father Christmas ( Santa Claus)
  • You know already that Father Christmas (Santa Claus) comes into children’s homes on Christmas Eve. He has a white beard and red and white clothes. He is always merry. They say he comes from the North Pole. He brings presents for the children.
Who was he?
  • Father Christmas is based on a real person, St Nicolas. He was a very shy man and wanted to give money to poor people without them knowing about it. It is said that one day, he climbed the roof of a house and dropped a purse of money down the chrimney. It landed in the stocking which a girl had put to dry by fire! This may explain thebelief thet Father Christmas comes down the chimney and places gifts in children’s stockings.
