Teacher: Today we are going to talk about Christmas. Everything around
is very beautiful at Christmas time. This holiday in Britain is all about nice food,
presents and family reunions. Large number of British people would say that there is a lot
more to Christmas than meets the eye of a foreigner.

(Приложение 1, слайд 1)
Officially Christmas and New Year celebrations run from the 24th of December
to the 2nd of January. (слайд 2)
What`s the weather at Christmas time?
Pupil 1: Playing snowballs and making snowman with the whole family is
the most people`s dream. This dream is more than likely to come true in northern countries
like Russia, but for British people it is different.
They are normally lucky enough to get some frost. In some cases the weather is wet and
gloomy. This is not to say that British people are not used to wet and miserable weather,
but at Christmas it is just too depressing to bear.
Teacher: For many British people Christmas marathon starts as early as
the beginning of October. It starts with the first adverts on TV.
By the end of November you do shopping and spend as much money as you can and buy
things your friends and family will never use.
An average British family spends €670 or more around the Christmas period. The money
is spent on a Christmas tree, presents and essential food.

It`s rather a short period of time but not all families get well with each other.
What irritates members of the family? What makes them lose their temper?
Pupil 2: It seems like a short time but in reality it is not. Firstly
not all families get on well with each other. Secondly, even if it is not the case, it is
difficult to stay calm and friendly amongst shouting parents trying to decide who knows
better how to make Christmas dinner, screaming kids and grandparents giving invaluable
pieces of advice. Besides there are things that have to be done at Christmas even if the
whole family hates it. They are playing traditional board games, eating Christmas cake.
All this creates some tension.
Teacher: These days there are lots of traditions which are usually
held. You have already heard about them. I believe the tradition I`m going to tell you
about is the best one.
Every new year people try to make their lives better. They give promise and make New
For example: " I`ll give up smoking”

Finally the presents are bought, wrapped and put down under the tree. Grown-up children
with their children, all relatives have come to grandparents. Everything is ready for
Christmas dinner. Members of the family have played traditional board games and Christmas
cake has already been eaten. Presents are being given…
Let us see the event now. (Sequence 2)
Now we are going to play and dramatize Christmas party.
All of you are the members of a big family. You have already got presents.
But there`s the problem. Santa Claus couldn`t remember which present was for which
person. He`s muddled presents up.
Get role-cards, read them and act.

you were eager of and listen to his/her complaint ask him/her to exchange presents.
