   A HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU!
In all the countries of the world and in
Britain and the United States as well, it is a tradition to make the last night
of the year one of fun and gaiety.
Whether the New Year’s Eve party is in a restaurant, a club
or in a modest home it will be gay, noisy and glittering. The music will be
loud and there will be bright colours, festive food and high
spirits.
Everybody likes to see the old year out and
the new year in noisily and cheerfully.
At midnight in Britain and America, people
join their hands and sing “We’ll take a cup of kindness yet for Auld Lang Syne”.
American children enthusiastically wish to
get rid of their little bad habits and resolve to do something good in the New
Year. They write down their resolutions on cards:
“I resolve to hang up my clothes before I
go to bed.”
“I resolve to stop teasing my
sister.”
“I resolve to learn a foreign
language.”
They sign their names and deliver the cards
to their parents for safe- keeping, and in order to be reminded of their
resolutions if they forget them.
                   
                       
           
                   
                       
   
GUY
FAWKES’ NIGHT
Most countries have a special national day on
which they have displays of fireworks. In England, this special day in November
5th.
Everybody in England celebrates a big plot,
which did not happen. King James was going to open Parliament on November
5th, 1605. A man called Guy
Fawkes not only wanted to kill the king, but to blow up Parliament as well. But
the king’s men found out
about his plan, arrested him on November 4th
and hanged him.
Later, some people got the idea of making a
bonfire and burning fireworks on November 5th
in order to remember the gunpowder Plot, and vary soon
such bonfires became a general custom all over England.
Now children in England look forward to Guy
Fawkes’ night every year.
They make a straw man called a “Guy”. Some of them show their Guy to
passers- by in the street and collect pennies.
Other play with fireworks or make bonfires on
which they burn the “Guy”. Even the younger children may stay up late, to
admire the rockets bursting in the sky.
                   
                       
   
                   
                   
HALLOWEEN
Halloween is essentially a young
people’s holiday. It is
celebrated in the U.S.A. on the night of October 31st
every year. The origin of this holiday dates back to
the popular superstitions of many people: the Druids of anticent Gaul and
Britain, the Irish and the Scotch.
The theme of harvest, characteristic of
modern Halloween celebrations comes from the Druids’ rites and the Romans’ festivals in honour of Pomona, the
goddess of fruit.
Halloween is a night- time holiday. On this
night the children dress up in grotesque costumes and go from one house to
another, carrying bags in their hands and ringing door bells. As the door opens
they shout Trick or treat.
But adults enjoy seeing the children and make sure they are ready with plenty
of sweets, biscuits and fruit. The tricks, when they do occur, are usually no
more serious than soaped windows or some misplaces garden tool.
Some schools have Halloween costume parties
for children. Special features of such parties are bobbing for apples and
telling fortunes of stories.
