their traditions, patriotism. Traditions of Great Britain is the basis of their culture.
Great Britain is considered one of the most democratic country, but the British life continues to be
determined by the old traditions. That's why even the most strange and old English traditions affect

traditions of the working class of London.

Royal British tradition
By the traditions of the British Royal family the opening of Parliament in November or
October, the awards, are held 20 times a year,
official visits, receptions in the royal
garden(this garden is visited annually by more
than 30 thousand people).

people began to broadcast on the radio

first radio message in 1952 and on TV in

since 1960 they are written in advance and
only broadcast on Christmas day.

There is a tradition of almsgiving monarch
('Maundy money') on Holy Thursday during
Holy week. This ceremony is held in one of
the cathedrals or abbeys of the country, and
money is given to pensioners living in the

traditions are largely determined by history and geographical position of the country and are
sacred to any generation.
