Teacher: Good morning. Today we’ll speak about Christmas in English-speaking countries. Our lesson will consist of two parts. First part is the presentation of Christmas you’ve prepared. In the second part of the lesson we’ll write our New Year resolutions, guess some riddles and learn a poem. Let’s start.

  1.  When December comes round on the calendar we see decorated evergreen treess in homes, shop windows and tow squares. We hear and sing carols. The malls are crowded with people. What time is is? It’s Christmas time, the most popular time of the year.
  2.  It is the time of the family gathering

   It is the time of giving and receiving

It is the time of hope and wishes

It is the time of thinking about other people.

 4. It’s Christmas! Merry Christmas!

Yes, it’s merry, merry Christmas,

it’s a time for hanging stockings,

it’s a time for riding sleighs,

it’s a time for jolly greeting,

snow and holly overeating,

oh, I love you, merry Christmas,

you’re the best of holidays.

5. Christmas...

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.

Sing “ Jolly Old saint Nicholas”

Jolly Old saint Nicholas,

Lean your ear this way.

Don’t you tell a single soul

What I’m going to say;

Christmas Eve is coming soon

Now you dear old man;

Whisper what you’ll bring to me

Tell me if you can.

When the clock is striking twelve

When I’m fast asleep

Down the chimney broad and black

Whith your pack you’ll creep.

All the stockings you will find

Hanging in a row

Mine will be the shortest one

You’ll be sure to know.

5. Christmas is a religious holiday. It’s celebrated on the 25th of December. It is the day on which Christians celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. It is a happy holiday.

Families come together  to share their happiness, go to church and exchange gifts.

6. People of different countries decorate their homes with Christmas trees, wreaths and ornaments. City streets are filled with lights; the sound of bells and Christmas carols can be heard everywhere.

7. Children write letters to Santa Claus and tell him what presents they would like to get. People send Christmas cards to relatives and friends.

8. Christmas tree is one of the main symbols of Christmas in most homes. Presents are placed under the tree. On Christmas Eve or Christmas morning families open their presents.

9. Many children believe that Santa Claus arrives on Christmas Eve in a sleigh pulled by a reindeer and brings presents. Some children hang up stockings so that Santa Claus can fill them with candies and other small gifts.

10. In many parts of the USA and Canada groups of people walk from house to house and sing Christmas carols.

A traditional Christmas dinner consists of stuffed turkey, mashed potato, cranberry sauce and other dishes. Some families have ham or a roast goose instead of turkey. Pumpkin pie, plum pudding and fruit cake are favourite desserts.

11. In different parts of the USA you can eat different dishes on Christmas. For example, New England has mashed potato crust, filled with meat, onion and cinnamon. In Virginia they eat oyster and ham. In New Mexico they eat little beef pies with apple sauce, pine nuts and raisins. In Hawaii they marinate turkey and cook it over an outdoor pit.

Jingle bells

Dashing through the snow

In a one-horse open sleigh,

Over the fields we go,

Laughing all the way;

Bells on bob-tail ring,

making spirits bright,

What fun it is to ride and sing

A sleighing song tonight, Oh

Jingle bells, jingle bells,

jingle all the way!

Oh, what fun it is to ride

In a one-horse open sleigh (repeat)

A day or two ago,

the story I must tell

I went out on the snow

And on my back I fell;

A gent was riding by

In a one-horse open sleigh,

He laughed as there

I sprawling lie,

But quickly drove away, Oh

Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells,

Jingle all the way!

Oh What fun it is to ride

In a one-horse open sleigh. (repeat)

12.The Christmas story comes from the Bible. Luke tells a beautiful story of shepherds who were watching their sheep when an angel appeared to them. He told them that a Savior had been born in Bethlehem. The shepherds went there to see Jesus.

13. The baby Jesus was born in a stable. His mother was the Virgin Mary. Mathew tells how the Wise Men followed a star until it led them to Jesus. The Wise Men gave Jesus gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. Because of this event, the Christians celebrate Christmas.

14. Every year at Christmas time

You can hear the church bells chime

They ring out on Christmas morn

For that’s the day that Jesus was born

Silent Night

Silent night! Holy night!

All is calm, all is bright

Round you Virgin Mother and Child

Holy Infant so tender and mild

Sleep in heavenly peace (2)

Silent night! Holy night!

Shepherds quake at the sight

Glories stream from heaven afar

Heav'nly hosts sing: Alleluia

Christ the Saviour is born (2)

Silent night! Holy night!

Son of God, love's pure light

Radiant beams from Thy holy face,

With the dawn of redeeming grace

Jesus, Lord at Thy birth (2)

Shepherd 1: Good Christianmen rejoice

With heart and soul and voice;

Listen carefully to what we say:

News! News!

Jesus Christ is born today:

Shepherd 2: Good Christian men, rejoice

With heart and soul and voice;

Now you hear of endless bliss;

Joy! Joy!

Jesus Christ was born for this!

Shepherd 3: Good Christian men, rejoice

With heart and soul and voice;

Now you need not fear the grave;

Peace! Peace!

Jesus Christ was born to save!

Angel 1: There is nothing to fear. We came to bring you news of a great joy that shall come to all people.

Angel 2: For a child is born this day in Bethlehem – a Savior who is Christ the Lord.

Angel 3: And this will be a sign to you. You’ll find the baby wrapped in clothes and lying an a manger.

Angels: Glory to God in the highest, and on Earth peace, good will toward men.

Shepherd: Let us go to Bethlehem and see this thing that the Lord has made known to us.

Wise Man 1: We looked up and saw a star

Shining in the East beyond us far

And to the earth it gave great light

And so it continued both day and night.

Wise Man 2: This star drew us to the northwest

Over Bethlehem it took its rest

And there it did both stop and stay

Right over the place where Jesus lay.

15. Then entered in those wise men three,

Fell rev’rently upon their knee,

And offered there in His presence,

Their gold, and myrrh, and frankincense.

16. Then let us all with one accord

  Sing praises to our heavenly Lord

  That has made heaven on earth of nought

       And with His blood mankind has bought.

Twinkle, twinkle, little star

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,

How I wonder what you are!

Up above the world so high,

Like a diamond in the sky!

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,

How I wonder what you are!

When the blazing sun is gone,

When he nothing shines upon,

Then you show your little light,

Twinkle, twinkle, all the night.

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,

How I wonder what you are!

Then the traveller in the dark,

Thanks you for your tiny spark,

How could he see where to go,

If you did not twinkle so.

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,

How I wonder what you are!

As your bright and tiny spark,

Lights the traveller in the dark,—

Though I know not what you are,

Twinkle, twinkle, little star.

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,

How I wonder what you are!

17. We are not daily beggars

That beg from door to door

But we are neighbors’ children

Whom you have seen before.

18. We have got a little purse

Of stretching leather skin

We want a little of your money

To line it well within

19. Bring us out a table

And spread it with a cloth

Bring us out a mouldly cheese

And some of your Christmas loaf.

20. God bless the master of this house,

Likewise the mistress too;

And all the little children

That round the table go.

O little town of Bethlehem

O little town of Bethlehem,

How still we see thee lie!

Above thy deep and dreamless sleep

The silent stars go by;

Yet in thy dark streets shineth

The everlasting Light;

The hopes and fears of all the years

Are met in thee to-night.

21. I heard the bells of Christmas Day

Their old, familiar carols play

And wild and sweet

The words repeat

Of peace on earth, good will to men.

22. Christmas greetings come to you

Along with heartfelt wishes too

May all you do met with success

And bring you every happiness

23. May Christmas bring you joy that stays

And gladness, deep and true

Not only on this blessed day,

But all the year through

24. Each time the old year closes

And we start a year that’s new

We think of those we care about,

And Jesus thinks of you.

And so for you, my special friends,

I wish with all my heart

Happiness to fill each day of the year

That will start.

25. May all the days of all the years

That God has still in store

Be filled with every joy and grace

To bless you more and more

26. May hope of heart and piece of mind

Beside you ever stay,

And that’s the golden wish I have

For you, this Christmas day.

We wish you a merry christmas

We wish you a merry christmas

And a happy New Year

We wish you good news at Christmas

Christ Jesus is born.

Let’s all do a little clapping

And spread Christmas cheer.
