MASLENITSA

There are many holidays and traditions in Russia. One of them is Maslenitsa. This holiday lasts for a week. Russian people celebrate it at the end of February or at the beginning of March. They say "goodbye" to winter on this holiday. During "Maslenitsa week" we always cook pancakes.

It is a tradition to cook pancakes and eat them with fish, sour cream, caviar, honey, sugar, butter. Our family likes to invite our friends to come to see us. We buy cakes, fruits, cook pancakes.

It is interesting to eat pancakes and to have a talk. During this holiday we celebrate the beginning of spring.

Usually this holiday is celebrated in our parks. People prepare fires and burn straw scarecrows of winter.

I like this gay Russian holiday, because I like to eat pancakes and I like spring.

 

THE 8th OF MARCH

There are many holidays in our country, the 8th of March is one of them.

It is a happy and nice holiday. It is a good tradition in our country to give presents and flowers to women on this day. Each family celebrates this spring holiday. In the morning men go to the shops or markets to buy some flowers. They try to clean flats and help women to cook a holiday dinner.

Sons and daughters help their mothers too: they make a cake, lay the table and wash dishes after holiday dinner.

All the members of the families try to be well dressed on this day.

Some families celebrate the 8th of March going to the theatres and concerts. They buy tickets beforehand.

Others prefer to invite guests and stay at home.

There is almost the same holiday in England. It is called Mothers' Day and celebrated also in spring. Sons and daughters come and give gifts to their mothers on this day.

If it is not possible to see a mother, one can send presents and cards to her. Flowers and cakes are the traditional gifts for all mothers in England. All women try to be nice and happy on this day.

 

MAY DAY

The 1st of May is a spring holiday in our country. Usually it is warm during this day. The weather is fine. The trees are green. You can see some flowers in the parks and gardens. I don't go to school and my parents don't go to work on the 1st of May.

We get up at 9 o'clock and we are in a good mood. Our relatives and friends ring us up and congratulate us.

Then we have our breakfast and go for a walk.

Our house is situated not far from the park. There is a beautiful pond with white swans swimming there.

If it doesn't rain we enjoy walking in the park.

Usually we invite our friends to our Place or come to see them ourselves. We have a holiday party in the evening. My mother makes a tasty cake and biscuits for it.

At 9 o'clock we see our friends off.

After that the members of our family usually watch TV or listen to music.

We like this holiday very much, because we can meet our friends, go to the theatre or simply have a good time at home.

This holiday is celebrated in England and in the USA too. Children dance around a maypole, leave small baskets of flowers at a friend's door.

 

ST. VALENTINE'S DAY

This holiday is celebrated on the 14th of February by the English and the Americans. It is not a national holiday. It is necessary to go to work, banks and offices do not close. It is a day of all lovers I think it is a happy festival for young people. But it is celebrated among persons of all ages. Valentine. What is it? It is a greeting card or a little present. The cards must be coloured and gay. It is possible to send flowers, cards and candy to those you love, but usually without giving the name of the sender.

Valentine presents are packed in red heart-shaped boxes. I think St. Valentine's Day is a great present-giving anniversary for adults as well as for children.
