The warmest Christmas greetings

Especially for you

Christmas is on the 25 th of December. It is the greatest holiday in Britain.

Traditionally, Christmas festivities lasted 12 days. Yuletide begins in the middle of December and ends on the 6th of January. All the children like this wonderful time because it is the time of much fun.

      1)This is the time                                     2)  Look! They’ve made a snowman

When children skate and ski                       He is tall and fat.

Play snowballs and dance                           He has a carrot for his nose

Round the Christmas tree                            He has a funny hat.

     3)The snow is falling                                 4)  Snowflakes fall on trees and walk

The wind is blowing                                    Snowflakes fall as white as chalk

The ground is white                                     Snowflakes fall into my hand

All day and all night                                    Snowflakes brighten up our land   

                                Song “Let it snow”                                  

For English children Christmas begins in October. They write Christmas list for Father Christmas. Here is one of them

                  Dear Santa!

Merry Christmas! Can I have a truck, a horse and a bunk bed.

Thank you! Marry Christmas!


In the week before Christmas people make or buy Christmas cards and send them to their friends, grandparents, cousins, aunts and uncles. Christmas cards were introduced in Britain in 1840. They showed religious scenes and often had religious texts in them. Nowadays they can have any picture on them, for example, winter view. Many children make their cards at school. The most popular wishes in these holiday cards are: Merry Christmas! Happy New Year!  

A Merry Christmas for me,

A Happy New year for you

A Merry Christmas for everyone

That’s what I wish -I do.

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 robin as a Christmas bird. You can see it on almost every Christmas card.

It’s time for jolly greeting

Snow and holly, overeating,

Oh, I love you, merry Christmas

You are the best of holidays

      Christmas Eve is on the 24 th of December. On this day everybody is very busy and in a hurry. Offices close at 1 o’clock, but the shops stay open late. The windows of the shops are set with little angels, snowmen, deer and lots of Santa Clauses. Streets and buildings are decorated with fine garlands. Beautiful wreaths are put on the doors of the houses.

December is waiting and wanting and wishing

And longing for Christmas Day

   On Christmas Eve children hang their Christmas stockings on their beds or put them under the Christmas tree. A Christmas stocking is not a real stocking. It is big and beautifully decorated.

            It’s Christmas! Merry Christmas!

            Yes, it’s merry, merry Christmas

             It’s a time for handing stockings

             It’s time for riding sleighs.

      Do you know why English people hang stockings on the fireplace?

     Once upon a time a poor nobleman and his three daughters lived. The father was depressed as his daughters could not marry without dowries. One night after the daughters had washed out their clothes they hung their stockings over the fireplace to dry. That night Saint Nicholas threw three coins down a chimney of the home of three poor sisters. Each of the coins landed inside separate stockings.

     (3 daughters appear. They sing and dance)


  1) This is they way                            5) This is they way   

     We tidy the room (3)                          We wash our stockings (3)

     Every day in the morning                   Every day in the evening


 2) This is they way                             6) This is they way

     We do ironing (3)                               We dry our stockings (3)

     Every day in the morning                   Every day in the evening

                                                                (girls put their stocking over the fireplace)

 3) This is they way                             7) This is they way

     We do the cooking (3)                       We sing and dance (3)

     Every day in the afternoon                 Every day at night



 4) This is they way                             8) This is they way

     We sweep the floor (3)                       We go to bed (3)

     Every day in the afternoon                 Every day at night


     In modern times the Christmas stocking is often used as a holder of small gifts for children. Children wait for Santa Claus and other miracles. Santa Claus puts presents into their stockings.

               (Santa appears and put some coins into their stockings)


  Santa Claus lives in England

  He is tall and fat

  His cheeks are like roses  

  His nose is like a cherry  

  With a branch of green holly

  And robins his friends

  To all English children

  Christmas wishes he sends.

  Santa: Merry Christmas! Happy New Year! Best wishes.

  Song: “We wish you a merry Christmas”

   The original Santa Claus, St. Nicholas was born in Turkey in the fourth century. He was imprisoned and tortured. Constantine the emperor of Rome allowed Nicolas to go free.

     St. Nicholas loved children dearly and gave them presents. For many centuries he is their patron saint. The Dutch kept the legend of St. Nicholas alive. They spelled St. Nicholas as Sint Nikolaas, then as Sinterklaas and finally as Santa Claus. He looked like an ordinary person, but wearing a red cloak.

     In 1930’s the Coca-Cola Company ran an advertisement showing Santa Claus the way we know him now; rather fat and jolly, with his red suit and long white whiskers.

        We try to be as good as gold all month,

         So very good because we know

        Who’s coming down the chimney –

        Jolly Santa Claus!


     Santa Claus arrives at night from the North Pole on his flying sleigh pulled by flying reindeer. He climbs down the chimney and fills each stocking with present.

         The joyous bells are ringing

         The Christmas season’s here

          It’s time to wish you happiness

         That lasts throughout the year.

                       Dialogue “How old is Santa”

     Bobby:  -Mummy, mummy, I want to ask you how old is Santa and when is Santa’s birthday?

     Mother: -As I know, he was born in the year 603A.D in Italy.             

     -The reindeer that pull the sleigh are: Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donna, Blitzen, and of course, Rudolph. And Rudolph almost always the lead reindeer thanks to his wonderful bright nose!

     -How do the reindeer fly?

     -When the reindeer eat magical oats and corn they become able to fly and leap high info the air.

     -What does Santa do when a house does not have a chimney or there is a fire burning in the fireplace?

     -Santa likes to keep a few things secret so he can always surprise the kids he is visiting – he uses a little magic but he always finds a way!

     -Mummy, how does Santa know whether I have been naughty or nice?

     -He maintains his naughty and nice list, with the help of all the elves who have a special way of keeping an eye on every kid.

    - Why does Santa always bring me what I asked for?

    -Thanks to the elves and your gift lists, Santa usually knows what presents you would like to receive?

     -How can Santa sleigh around the world in one day?

     -Through a combination of lots of practice and hard work and a little magic Santa and the reindeer always make it in time.

   - Has Santa ever missed a year?

   - No, Bobby, of course, not! Santa Claus hasn’t missed a Christmas yet.

Mother: Listen!

           Santa is coming

           Sleigh bells are near

           Have a Happy Christmas

           And a Happy New Year

                                 Song “Jingle Bells”

Christmas would never been Christmas without its many wonderful traditions. Here is how a few of them began.


     Holly is an evergreen plant with sharp-pointed leaves and red berries. English people 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.

Bring forth the holly

The box and the bay

Dick out our cottage

For glad Christmas Day.

   Mistletoe is an evergreen plant with small leaves and small white berries. On Christmas Eve there is a bunch of the mistletoe in every house. Under this bunch boys kiss girls.

Boy: The rose is red

        The violets are blue

         Mistletoe is nice

         So, are you

Girl: Its such a treat

        To love someone

         So sweet    (a boy kisses a girl)

Christmas is the time to remember others.

On Christmas Eve people like to light candles, as symbols of everlasting life. The Irish place a candle in the window, inviting all travelers to share the warmth within the house.

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.  

      The winter tradition of decoration homes with evergreens began in ancient times. Branches of fir were thought to bring good luck and guarantee the return of spring.              

   Oh, what joy, what pleasure to see

   On Christmas Eve our Christmas Tree

   When the lights shines bright

   In the dark evening night

The first Christmas tree was in Germany in 1521. It became fashionable in Britain in mid-nineteenth century when Prince Albert, homesick for his native Germany, imported a tree to his Windsor Castle.

   Oh, Christmas tree! Oh, Christmas tree!

             How green are your sweet branches!

             You bloom not only when it’s warm

             But also in winter storm.

             Oh, Christmas tree! Oh, Christmas tree!

             How sweet are your green branches!

The most famous tree in the UK donated each year by the Norwegians for use in Trafalgar Square, normally lit up on the first Thursday of December.

             Oh, Christmas tree! Oh, Christmas tree!

              How we love to see you

              We’ll make some trimmings just for you

              Of red and gold and green and blue

              Oh, Christmas tree! Oh, Christmas tree!

              How we love to see you

In England parents often decorate the tree behind tightly shut doors. The children are not allowed to see the tree until Christmas Eve. Only on Christmas Eve the parents throw open the doors and children go rushing in to see the shining tree.

             We have a fir-tree in the hall

             It is so beautiful and tall

            Around it we dance and play

            Because it is a Christmas Day.

                                       It is winter, it is Christmas

                                       Look at our Christmas Tree

                                      There are big balls, there are nice dolls

                                       Many candies you can see

              There are flags and there are ribbons

              Little bells and bright stars, too

              Red and orange, green and yellow

              Pink and purple, violet and blue

                                      Singing, dancing, merrily

                                      Round the Christmas tree

                                      Merrily, merrily, merrily

                                      Round the New Year tree.

             Happy Christmas, my friends

             Happy Christmas today

             Let’s dance hand in hand

             I will show you the way

                                     Song “Julie Tree”

Giving presents is a popular Christmas tradition. Children ask Santa Claus for presents. They write letters and describe in details what they wish. The letter is thrown into the fireplace. Smoke out of the chimney is thought to supply this letter right its purpose.

            It is winter, it is cold                   Christmas is the merriest holiday of all

            Father Frost is very old.              Make a cranberry rope, a popcorn ball,

            But he is always full of joy.        Cookies to hang on the tree,

           And glad to give me a nice toy.   Hide presents in place where none can see

                                 Dialogue “Christmas gifts”

Rita: - Hello, everyone. Today in our studio we have the most magical person

          in the world - Santa Claus!

          We’ve got a lot of questions and letters for you, Santa.

Santa: - Hey, hey. Hello, I’m glad to be here, in the studio.

          - And the first question. Dennis from London asks you why you don’t

            come every day of the year.

          -Well, for a couple of reasons. First, I come on Christmas Eve to

            celebrate Christmas. Second, it takes a whole year to get everything

            ready for just one very special night.

          - Santa, how many kids do you deliver presents to?

          - I deliver presents to millions and millions of good children around

          the world.

          -What is the most commonly asked for present?

         - It depends on several things. First, it depends on who’s asking.

           Whether it is a boy or a girl, how old they are, and lastly, where they live.

         -Can you explain in details, please?

        - Surely, for the girls, it’s Barbie. And for the boys, it’s a Play station.

          It seems like everyone wants Shrek or Harry Potter.

          Of course there are always the standards, new CD’s, new cloth,

          and lots of other interesting things.

        -Alice wants to ask Santa if you really need snow to make your

         Christmas deliveries?

       - No, I don’t need snow everywhere to make deliveries.

         After all I deliver to parts of Europe, Asia, South America,

         Africa and other areas that have no snow.

       - We have a call from Bruce. He wants to know if you ever get the flu.

       -Occasionally I get the flu, but I always take tablets to avoid getting

         sick. Even the flu wouldn’t stop me from my Christmas deliveries.

       -Thank you very much for your coming to our studio, Santa.

 The 25th of December. Everything is ready for celebration. Clock strikes 12. At 3 p.m. Queen Elizabeth II appeals to English people with holiday speech.

                               Song “Happy New Year”

    British people celebrate Christmas Day with big dinner. Children have much fun. They play under Christmas tree, find presents in their Christmas stockings, eat pudding.

     Christmas pudding was first made 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.

     Mince pies are small round pies. Children like these pies very much. A turkey is a traditional Christmas bird. People eat it on Christmas Day.  

    Christmas is coming

    The goose is getting fat

    Please put a penny

    In the old man’s hat  

    If you haven’t got a penny

    A ha’penny will do

    If you haven’t got a ha’penny,

    God bless you!

    A pantomime is a traditional performance for children at Christmas. All the children have much fun when they watch fairy tales with princes, beautiful princesses and fairies such as Cinderella.

                                   Dance “Cinderella”.

   A carol is a Christmas song. People often sing carols on Christmas Eve in the street or at home. The first carols came from France in the form of popular dance song.

            Sing we all merrily

            Christmas is here,

            The day we love best

            Of all days in the year  

                      Sing we all merrily

                      Draw round the fire,

                      Sister and brother

                      Grandson and sire

  Waits are a group of singers who sing carols. They sing carols in front of a Christmas tree. In small towns and villages waits often come and stand in front of the house and sing or play carols. They receive money for their singing and playing. They give the money to poor and old people.


            A beautiful time of the year

            With carols and tinsel

            And lots of good cheer,

            With sharing and caring

             And hearts drawing near-


             A beautiful time of the year


 Christmas is the holiday of my soul. It is cold outside, and the sky is gloomy, but the flowers burst into bloom deep in my heart. Christmas is the victory of good over evil. Christmas is the time to forgive everyone who hurt you. To forgive and to forget… It is not very easy. But you should try. Just do it. That’s what Christ do. This is main meaning of the spirit of Christmas. I wish you live with this spirit not only at Christmas time, but all during the year. God bless you, everyone!

           May Christmas be bright with cheer

           Warm with friendliness

           And filled with happiness

           For you and yours!
