At midnight when the clock begins to strike twelve, the head of the family goes to the entrance door, opens it wide and holds it until the last stroke. Then he shuts the door. He has let the old year out and let the New Year in.

What do you know about Christmas decorations in Britain?
The English like to decorate their houses before Christmas. There is a beautiful Christmas tree in every English house. But this tradition is not very old. In England the Christmas tree was made popular by Prince Albert, the husband of Queen Victoria. Prince Albert was born in Germany where the decorated tree was already one of the Christmas traditions.
In 1840 he introduced a beautiful tree into the royal family’s Christmas.
In England they decorate their houses not only with a Christmas tree. They use holly and mistletoe. It’s a typical English custom. Holly is a bush with shiny red berries. The glossy leaves of holly have sharp edges. Holly’s berries symbolize Christ’s blood. You can see welcome wreaths on front doors. In Roman times a garland of leaves signified good luck. Mistletoe is a parasitic plant. Mistletoe grows on the apple trees. Druids used mistletoe as a symbol of fertility. It is still customary to kiss someone under the mistletoe.

Christmas Dinner is the main meal traditionally eaten on Christmas Day.
In most countries turkey is usually the main dish and centerpiece of the table although other dishes vary widely.
In Britain Christmas dinner is usually roast turkey with gravy and cranberry sauce, roast potatoes, stuffing (known in the USA as dressing), with winter vegetables such as Brussels sprouts. This is sometimes accompanied with pork sausage and bacon. For dessert – Christmas pudding and brandy butter. It’s also traditional to pull Christmas crackers during Christmas dinner.
In the USA many Christmas customs have been imported from Britain and so Christmas dinners tend to be roughly similar. There are of course many American favorites such as pumpkin pie, green beans, corn as well as dishes popular in particular regions: turkey teriyaki in Hawaii, oysters and ham pie in Virginia and so on.( Ученики на основе текста о traditional Christmas dinner составляют диалог(учитываются знания грамматики)).
