Dashing through the snow
In a one-horse open sleigh
O'er the fields we go
Laughing all the way.
Bells on bob-tail ring
Making spirits bright
What fun it is to ride and sing
A sleighing song tonight.
Chorus (припев)
Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way,
Oh what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh,
Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way,
Oh what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh.
A day or two ago
I thought I'd take a ride
And soon Miss Fanny Bright
Was seated by my side;
The horse was lean and lank
Misfortune seemed his lot,
We ran into a drifted bank
And there we got upset.
Chorus (припев)
A day or two ago
The story I must tell
I went out on the snow
And on my back I fell;
A gent was riding by
In a one-horse open sleigh
He laughed at me as
I there sprawling laid
But quickly drove away.
Chorus (припев)
Now the ground is white,
Go it while you're young,
Take the girls along
And sing this sleighing song.
Just bet a bob-tailed bay,
Two-forty as his speed,
Hitch him to an open sleigh
And crack! You'll take the lead.
Christmas in Britain
Christmas
Day ,
December
25,
is probably
the most
popular
holiday in
Great Britain
This Christian holy
day is held in
honour of the
birth of Christ.
It is a family
holiday.
Traditionally
all relatives
and friends
give each
other presents.
So before Christmas
all the department
stores and shops are
crowded, everybody
is choosing a present.
In general, people get
prepared for this
holiday very carefully.
People decorate
their houses in
the traditional
way, that is the
Christmas trees
are set up in
houses, in the
streets and
churches.
The Christmas trees are
always decorated with
fairy lights, angels and
small toys. In addition
little packets with nuts,
candies and special
biscuits are hung on
the tree.
A typical Christmas lunch
includes turkey with
cranberry sauce and
pudding. Every young
woman in each
household helps to stir
the Christmas pudding if
she wishes to be married
that year.
Usually a coin or two are
hidden inside the
pudding and part of the
fun is to see who finds it.
Carol singing is an
essential
part
of
Christmas. No church
or school is without its
carol service. Carols
may be traditional or
by known composers
they
can
express
different
feelings.
Carols appeared in
Christmas
history
about the fifteenth
century.
Usually children come
around in the evening
to the front doors and
start singing carols
and the people living
in these houses give
children candies, nuts,
pies and so on, to
thank them for carol
singing.
Young children are
told that Santa will
bring them presents
if they are good.
Sometimes children
write a letter to
Santa Claus telling
him what present
they would like for
Christmas.
Santa Claus,
also called Santa,
Father Christmas
(in Britain),
or Kriss Kringle
(in America),
or Father Frost
(in Russia)
is an old man in red
clothes and with a long
white beard.
Santa Claus is
supposed to
fly about the
sky in a
sleigh, pulled
by reindeer.
Santa Claus is
thought to live
at the North
Pole.
Santa is
supposed to
visit each
house on
Christmas Eve
by climbing
down the
chimney.
