grave about you, whatever you are!”
“They are Man's and they cling to me, appealing from their fathers. This
boy is Ignorance and this girl is Want. Beware them both, and all of
their degree, but most of all beware this boy for on his brow I see that

Most families have a Christmas Treein their house for Christmas.
Christmas Trees were first popularised in the UK by Prince Albert, the husband
of Queen Victoria. Prince Albert was German and thought that it would be good
to use one of his ways of celebrating Christmas in England.
Children believe that Father Christmas or Santa Clausleaves presents in
stockings or pillow-cases. They are usually hung up by the fire or by the
children's beds on Christmas Eve. Children sometimes leave out mince pies and brandy
or milk for Father Christmas when he visits them.
Children write letters to Father Christmas with their requests, but
sometimes instead of putting them in the post, the letters are tossed into the
fireplace. The draught carries the letters up the chimney and Father Christmas
reads the smoke.
Boxing Day is a very
old custom that started in the UK and is now taken as a holiday in many
countries around the world. Boxing Day in the United Kingdom is the day after Christmas Day, December 26th. Traditionally, it was a day when employers
distributed money, food, clothes or other goods to
their employees. In modern times, it is an important day for sporting
events and the start of the post-Christmas sales.
In the UK, the main Christmas Meal is usually eaten at lunchtime or early
afternoon on Christmas Day. It was traditionally roast beef or goose, although
it's common to have turkey, roast vegetables and 'all the trimmings' which
means stuffing and sometimes bacon and sausages.
