My favorite holiday
In Russia, the same as in every other country, there are many holidays: interesting and funny, patriotic and dedicated to any historical event. For example in Russia there are such holidays as the Women’s day, the Victory Day, the Independent Day, the April’s Fool’s day, and many other. In 80th years in Russia some holidays were canceled, among them is the May Day, the 7th of October, the birthday of komsomol, and some other. As for me this resolution was right because when the life of the whole country is changing the old holidays must also be changed by new.
I like all holidays. But everyone of them can be made upset, except one. It’s the New Year. New Year is a holiday for everyone. The people all over the world welcome the new year at one moment, that’s why I think it’s the most uniting holiday in the world, because in this moment every person can say that he loves everyone. I think it is an international holiday.
But in different countries the New Year is celebrated in different days, for example it can be celebrated on the 1st of September or … Also I’ve heard that from 2001 year the New Year will be celebrated on the 1st of March by all countries all over the world. As for me, I think that it was a right resolution.
There are lots of New Year traditions in Russia. In every home there is a New Year tree glittering in colored lights and decorations. Children always wait for Father Frost to come and give them a present. Many people consider a New Year to be a family holiday. But most of the young prefer to spend the New Year there own having parties. As for me I prefer to see the New Year with my family, because I meet these New Years last times with my family and after some years I’ll spend it on my own. I must spend as much time as possible with my family because in some years I’ll have to leave them to begin my own life and these holidays may be the last.
