England Christmas

Traditions:Christmas in England began in A.D. 596, when St Augustine landed on her shores with monks who wanted to bring Christianity to the Anglo Saxons.The gift giver is called Father Christmas. He wears a long red, or greewn, robe, and leaves presents in stockings and under the trees on Christmas Eve. However, the gifts are not usually opened until afternoon of the next day. The day after Christmas is called Boxing Day, because boys use to go around collecting money in clay boxes. When the boxes were full, they smashed them.

1) The English enjoy beautiful Christmas music. They love to decorate Christmas Trees and hang up evergreen branches.2) They often perform an activity by the name of "mummering". It has been an activity since the Middle Ages. In the activity, people will put on masks and perform plays.3) In England Christmas dinner was usually eaten at Midday on December 25, during daylight.
