Conclusion
Great Britain is famous for its customs and traditions. They
are everywhere: in social life, in culture and even in politics.
We can’t imagine that country without its unique traditions.
I would like to tell you about some of them.
British traditional customs are closely connected
with history. The first ceremony of changing the
guard occurs to1660. The ceremony lasts for 45
minutes.
Every night Chief Warder closes the gate of the Tower.
This ceremony lasts for 700 years long. The gates are
locked at 9:53 pm.
The Sentry calls out: "Halt! Who
comes there?"
Chief Warder: "The keys."
Sentry: "Whose keys?"
Chief Warder: "Queen Elizabeth's
keys."
Sentry: "Pass Queen Elizabeth's
Keys. All's well."
(On the top of the Stairs)
Chief Warder: "God preserve Queen
Elizabeth."
Sentry: "Amen!"
It’s one of the oldest traditions in Great Britain,
people life style. People of Great Britain can drink
more than five cups of tea a day. Every cafe owner
offers eight or ten sorts of tea for taste. The tea is
drunk hot, but not scalding.
Halloween is celebrated at night from the 31st
October to the 1st November. This festival combines
praise of dark spirits and the worship of saints.
Children go from house to house and they beg
different sweets.
Boat race is held every year in spring. Cambridge and
Oxford boats take part in this race. Each team
includes six rowers and one helmsman. Rowers are
always very strong and big, but helmsman is usually
small and light.
The big race is held on the Thames in the western
part of the city. The distance is 6 779 metres long. It
is a very popular event. Audience includes 250 000
people and half of billion people watch the race on
TV.
At the end of October the Queen arrives at the Houses of
Parliament to the House of Lords for the State Opening of
Parliament.
The chairperson of the House of Lords is Lord
Chancellor. He sits on the woolsack, a large bag of
wool, covered with red cloth. It shows that wool made
England rich.
It’s really impossible to mention all English traditions. Some
of them are the same as in this country and are clear to
Russian people, but some of traditions are unique and even
strange. But I respect them, they are part of English culture.
