Christmas is a traditional holiday which has always been a time for family and friends. Christmas in Britain differs from our Christmas in Poland. In the United Kingdom Christmas actually starts on 25th December. Christmas Eve, which takes place on 24th December, has only symbolic meaning. Children hang up colourful stockings on the fireplace. Next day, their stockings are full of treats, candies and other gifts. To thank Santa Claus, each child leaves for him a glass of milk and biscuits under a Christmas tree.
On Christmas Day (25th December) whole British family gathers together at the table and a solemn dinner is served. On this day British people eat a roast turkey and pudding for a dessert. However, 26th December is Boxing Day. This day English people give presents to their co-workers and friends. The name of a holiday comes from the word „box” (pudełko).
