ENGLISH HOLIDAYS

(Part II)

In March the English people have got two holidays: St. Patrick’s Day and Mother’s Day. St. Patrick’s Day falls on the 17th of March. It is a national holiday in Ireland. On that day people send greeting cards and wear a shamrock. A shamrock is the national emblem of Ireland.

On Mother’s Day people in the family try to let their mother have a rest. A father and the children do the housework, cook some tasty dishes or bake a cake.

There is one more popular holiday in spring — Easter. People celebrate it in April or in early May. On Easter Sunday the children get chocolate Easter eqqs or rabbits.

In April there is a holiday for fun —April Fool’s Day. It is on the 1st of April. On that day the English children like to play jokes and tricks on other people.

There are not many holidays in summer. In June the English people celebrate Father’s Day when the children spend the day with their fathers and give them presents.

In summer the English people visit their relatives who live in the country or go to the seaside. Most English people have holidays in summer.

Autumn is the beginning of the schoolyear for all English schoolchildren. They also like to celebrate a very nice holiday — Halloween. It is on the 31st of October. People put pumpkins on the windowsills. The children draw eyes, a nose and a mouth on the pumpkin and put a candle inside it so the pumpkin looks like a face. The children go from house to house in funny clothes and say «Trick or treat». They get sweets, fruit, cakes, biscuits or money for that.
