We decorate our home and the Christmas tree with Christmas lights and decorations: bells, candy canes, stars, holly and wreathes.
We write Christmas cards to our friends and a Christmas list to Santa Claus. (If you don’t know how to write a Christmas list, see Writing a Christmas list: Dear Santa…)
We use ribbons and wrapping paper to wrap the presents (= gifts) for our friends and family.
Children hang their stockings upon the fireplace. Santa Claus comes on Christmas night when children are asleep and puts presents in their stockings, or under the Christmas tree.
Santa Claus lives at the North Pole. His other names are Saint Nick, Father Christmas, Father Frost and Père Noel.
Elfs help him to prepare presents. Reindeers pull Santa’s sleigh, so he can visit houses all over the world and bring presents to children (and, may be, some grown ups too:)
We say to each other: ‘Merry Christmas’ and ‘Happy New Year!’ and we wish happiness and health to the people we care about.
Christmas is a time for peace and joy, when families and friends gather together for a special holiday dinner.
There are Christmas lights and decorations everywhere on the streets.
Everyone waits for snow on Christmas. Children love playing snowballs, building a snowman and riding a sleigh.
