Task 1
give a talk on holidays and celebrations.
remember to discuss:
• what occasions people usually celebrate, why
• whether you enjoy holidays and why
• what is your favourite holiday, why
• what russian holiday makes you especially proud of why

people all over the world celebrate different holidays such as new year’-s day, christmas or easter because these celebrations are a part of their culture and people try to preserve these traditions. besides, they usually celebrated holidays connected with the history of their country, for example thanksgiving day in the usa or guy fawkes’ night in great britain. apart from this, some people celebrate such special occasions as graduation, getting a job or retirement because these are memorable events in their life. and of course most people celebrate such family events as birthdays or weddings because they want to please their relatives and to keep up family traditions.

personally, i enjoy celebrating holidays. for me, a holiday is not just a day off but a special occasion and i usually prepare for it beforehand. first of all, i think that holidays are an important way to keep up our traditions. besides, it’s a good chance to bring the family together and to meet all your friends and relatives. what is more, i like this perfect atmosphere behind celebrations when my mum cooks a festive dinner and people give and receive presents.

my favourite holiday is of course new year because i always get a lot of presents. besides, i like the atmosphere of this holiday as there is a great air of expectation. traditionally, on the thirty-first of december we decorate a fir-tree and put presents under it. i also enjoy the family meal, which is a central part of our celebration. when the kremlin clock strikes twelve, we wish each о the r1 happy new year’ and then we go for a walk and let off fireworks. it’s a great time of the year.

the holiday that makes me especially proud is victory day. it commemorates the victory of our country in world war ii. on this day we usually put flowers at the tomb of the unknown soldier and honour the memory of my grandfather who died in this war. i am especially impressed by the ceremony when people all over the country keep silence for a minute in honour of those who died to defend our motherland. i think it’s one of the most important traditions in our country and we must keep it up to remind our children of the terrible consequences of wars.
