Rozdíly mezi britskými a americkými Vánoci

Předmět maturitního zkoušení: Jak slaví Vánoce v Americe a jak v Anglii.

The most famous winter holiday is Christmas. The British have no traditional celebration on Christmas Eve. December 24 is reserved for office party and many people spent this day by shopping. Children believe that Santa Claus or Father Christmas who rides through the air on a sledge drawn by reindeer and comes down the chimney and fills up the stocking with present and toys. Children write a letter and then they throw the letter into the Fireplace. So on the Christmas Eve they hang up the stockings on the end of their bed. December 25 is Christmas day. In the morning children unwrap their presents. The dinner on Christmas Day is the “most important“ meal of the year. The British usually have roast turkey and roast potatoes followed by Christmas pudding (also called plum pudding). December 26 is called Boxing Day from the habit in earlier times when people gave their servants small sums of many which they collected in their Christmas boxes.

In the USA Christmas isn´t national holiday but many Americans are Christians so almost all shops are closed and people have a rest on Christmas Day. Christmas in the USA is not a family holiday. Families invite friend to join them at Christmas dinner and often give parties at Christmas time.

In both USA and Britain Christmas trees are decorated by electric coloured lights. And Americans also decorate their houses with garlands and wreaths.

    Opravdu nemám čas na to, abych Vám tu opravoval každý článek, takže zmůžu asi jen tohle: Lidi, utíkejte rychle pryč z téhle stránky. Články jsou špatně, jak gramaticky a sémanticky, tak často i faktograficky! Vytahují se bohatou slovní zásobou ze slovníků, kterou ale neumí použít, nemají kouska jazykového citu v těle. Obzvlášť pokud se učíte na maturitu, jsou tyto stránky absolutně nevhodné. Lepší je i wikipedie. Zavřete tuhle záložku a radši si ji i smažte z historie, protože tady opravdu nic dobrého ani užitečného NENAJDETE!
