English Project — Christmas in the USA

The United States of America has many different traditions and ways that people celebrate Christmas, because of its multi-cultural nature. Many customs are similar to ones in the UK, France, Italy, The Netherlands, Poland and Mexico.

The traditional meal for Western European families is turkey or ham with cranberry sauce. Families from Eastern European origins favour turkey with trimmings, keilbasi (a Polish sausage), cabbage dishes, and soups; and some Italian families prefer lasagne!

Some Americans use pop-corn threaded on string to help decorate their Christmas Tree! Making gingerbread houses is also popular to make and eat at Christmas!

Many Americans, especially Christians will go to Church to celebrate the birth of Jesus at Christmas. Many churches have special Christmas Carol services and events where the story of Christmas is told.

In New England (the American States of Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine), there are shops called ‘Christmas Shops’ that only sell Christmas decorations and toys all the year round.

Americans also send out Christmas Cards, like Carol singing and there’s the unusual custom of the Christmas Pickle.

People in America like to decorate the outsides of their houses with lights and sometimes even statues of Santa Claus, Snowmen and Reindeer. Some cookies and glass of milk are often left out as a snack for Santa on Christmas Eve.

Towns and cities often decorate the streets with lights to celebrate Christmas. Perhaps the most famous Christmas street lights in the USA are at the Rockefeller Center in New York where there is a huge Christmas Tree with a public ice skating rink in front of it over Christmas and the New Year.

Customs such as Mumming take place in some communities. On New Year’s Day in Philadelphia there is a Mummer’s Day parade which lasts over six hours! Clubs called «New Years Associations» perform in amazing costumes which take months to make. There are four categories (Comics, Fancies, String Bands, and Fancy Brigades) which are judged.

In the Southwest USA, there are some special customs which have some similarities to those in parts of Mexico. These include ‘luminarias’ or ‘farolitos’ which are paper sacks partly filled with sand and then have a candle put in them. They are lit on Christmas Eve and are put the edges of paths. They represent ‘lighting the way’ for somewhere for Mary and Joseph to stay.

In the south of Louisiana, on Christmas Eve, families in small communities along the Mississippi River light bonfires along the levees (the high river banks) to help ‘Papa Noel’ (the name for Santa in French as Louisiana has a strong historical connection with France) find his way to the children’s homes.

ChinaNew Year traditions in different countries

The Chinese New Year is a much-celebrated event, which is colourful and exciting. Here in China, you can partake in the many traditions of Chinese New Year. One particular tradition is handing out cash in red envelopes. Elders usually hand out various sums of money to the young people in red envelopes. Yet another tradition here is bursting firecrackers that burst aloud. It is believed that the sound and fire can ward off evil spirits.

 

Russia

New Year traditions in different countriesWell, it’s celebration in Russia, what do you expect? During the days of the communist occupation, Russia saw a dearth of celebrations. This gave rise to massive New Year celebratory traditions that include one particularly interesting one. The tradition requires you to write your New Year’s wish on a piece of paper and then set it alight. You then need to drop the remains into your champagne glass, and of course, drink it before the clock goes past 12.

 

Japan

New Year traditions in different countriesThe Japanese have their own unique set of traditions of course when it comes to New Year celebrations. New Year’s Eve is also known as Omisoka, and the tradition is ringing bells in Buddhist temples, and that too exactly 108 times. The reason for 108 is that this is the number of human desires, which means the causes of suffering. Thus, this could take away all negative emotions, and the best place to go to is Zojoji Temple in Tokyo.

 

Thailand

New Year traditions in different countriesThailand New Year 2018 will see a lot of fun and frolic of course. After all, it is one of the most exciting party destinations. But traditionally things can be a lot different. Known as Songkran, the Thai people celebrate New Year by splashing water onto each other. You will find lots of people walking the streets with buckets of water, ready to attack each other. There is also a need for spending time with family and, hence, you will find a lot of young people visiting elders in the family. Visiting temples is yet another important New Year’s tradition.

 

Scotland

The most widespread national custom is the practice of first-footing, which starts immediately after midnight. This involves being the first person to cross the threshold of a friend or neighbour and often involves the giving of symbolic gifts such as salt (less common today), coal,shortbread, whisky, and black bun (a rich fruit cake), intended to bring different kinds of luck to the householder. Food and drink (as the gifts) are then given to the guests. This may go on throughout the early hours of the morning and well into the next day (although modern days see people visiting houses well into the middle of January). The first-foot is supposed to set the luck for the rest of the year. Traditionally, tall, dark-haired men are preferred as the first-foot.

 

Cuba

Children’s New Year’s holiday in Cuba is called the Day of Kings. Kings-wizards, who bring gifts to children, are called Baltasar, Gaspar and Melchor. On the eve of the New Year the children write letters to them, in which they tell of their cherished desires. Cubans in the New Year’s Eve fill with water all the dishes that are in the house, and at midnight they start pouring it out of the windows. In such a way all the inhabitants of the Island of Freedom wish the New Year a bright and clean way, like water. And while the clock beats 12 beats, people need to eat 12 grapes, and then goodness, harmony, prosperity and peace will accompany them all twelve months.

 

Kyrgyzstan

The celebration of the New Year in Kyrgyzstan practically does not differ from a similar holiday in other republics of the former USSR. But, the New Year in Kyrgyzstan is often celebrated without snow at a temperature of plus ten. However, those who wish can go to the mountains to the ski resorts, where there is as much snow. By tradition, the country’s main tree is set on the central Ala-Too square, which at this time enjoys even greater popularity among the population and tourists.

English project — About Mkhitar Sebastatsi

received_3655817538651411489962762.jpeg

(17 February 1676–27 April 1749) was an Armenian Catholic monk, as well as prominent scholar and theologian who founded the Mekhitarist Order, which has been based on San Lazzaro island near Venice since 1717. The Armenian historian Stepanos Nazarian has described him as the «second Mesrop Mashtots». The cause for his beatification was accepted by the Holy See, due to which he is referred to as a Servant of God.

He was born Manugh in Sebaste (now Sivas) in Lesser Armenia on 17 February 1676, the son of a prosperous merchant Peter and his wife Shahristan. His parents gave him a good education to prepare him to assume the family business. Instead, from an early age, he wanted to become a monk. Refused permission for this, he found a young companion to flee to the mountains where they might live as hermits.

After his admittance to monastic life, Mekhitar began to see that the state of monastic life was extremely low after the devastating destruction of the Armenian monasteries in previous centuries. He began to seek out a source of true learning of the spiritual life, being taken to various monasteries by several traveling religious scholars who promised to teach him what he sought if he would serve them. During this period, he came into contact with members of the Roman Catholic religious orders who were active in Armenia. Learning about Catholicism, he came to feel that Rome would be the best place to do the theological studies he had long sought. Finally he was forced to return to his home town, walking barefoot, though he was suffering from jaundice. Slowly regaining his health there, in 1696 he was ordained a priest by the Abbot of Holy Cross Monastery.
