In my country, 'Tết', the same as New Year's Day in the world, is our most happy holiday and lasts at least three days. The next is the 02-09 Day (the Independence Day), the 30-04 Day (the Liberation the South Day).

We do celebrate Christmas, Easter, New Year, Victory Day and some more orthodox holidays. We come together, cook and eat with all family members. We give our presents away, dance and visit either the church or the city center depending on the type of holiday.

I live in Ukraine. In my country we celebrate many holidays, one of them is Christmas. It is usually a family day, when all family gets together for evening dinner. A table is usually decorated with Christmas serviettes and candles. We have some special food like roasted duck with apples and lemon. On this day we already have a Cristmas tree in the house. It is decorated with lights, tinsels, Christmas balls and toys. In our family and in many others families people usually don`t give presents for each other on Cristmas, but it happens on New Year's Day - another holiday.

In my country people prepare many food and drinks for New Year, like chicken or turkey roast, rice, crisps, cokes, wine. Some people wear Santa Clothes in the streets and squares. While New Year time (24.00) approaching they begin to countdown from 10 to one then celebrate each other's new year. They wish a year better than last year for each others.

In my country we celebrate all the Christian holidays, especially Christmas, Easter and All Saints' Day; furthermore there are other holidays as New Year, Carnival, Halloween, August 15th, wich come from pagan traditions, but were christianized, although now these were celebrated without no links to the Christian faith.

Hi, Could you please explain me something in task 4? In sentence 4 from task 4, "Santa has eight reindeer to help pull his sleigh." I don't understand why "reindeer" is written without an "s" at the end?

Hi Leila77,

The plural of reindeer is the same as the singular form. It's irregular :)
