Plan of presentation
I want to say that the life
of this country is full of
traditions and customs.
And what, if not holidays,
more deeply reflect the
habits and customs of any
country?
The holidays have
always existed in the
culture of different
peoples, and now exist in
the culture of different
countries.
The United Kingdom of Great Britain and
Northern Ireland
England occupies the
most favorable
position (the central
and southern parts).
It’s bounded by
Scotland in the North,
Wales in the West and
in the East it’s washed
by the North Sea.
In the South-West
it’s washed by the
Bristol Channel.
The total area of the
country is 130 km².
St. Patrick's day is a cultural and religious holiday. It is celebrated in honor of
the patron saint of Ireland, St. Patrick on March 17, and is also a celebration of
the cultural heritage of Ireland in general.
In this day, throughout
Britain pass the national
festivals with Irish folk
music.
Almost the whole world
is coloured in this day in
green.
Mysterious magical
creature with a red beard,
in green suit and hat is
leprechaun - this is
another symbol of the
holiday.

marathon?

British students is of
paramount importance.

This competition is
the oldest and most
prestigious in the

Nice the festival
of chimney sweeps
in Rochester, is
held in 1 of May.
According to
popular beliefs, a
meeting with a
chimney sweep

Grimy, but never
downhearted person with
a ladder, ropes and whisks
fun looks around with the
tiled roofs of the city thus remains in the
