Jingle bells, jingle bells,

 Jingle all the way.

Oh what fun it is to ride.

In a оnе-horse open sleigh.

Dashing thro' the show,

In a one-horse open sleigh,

O'er the fields we go,

Laughing all the way.

Bells on bob-tail ring,

Making spirits bright,

Wliat fun it is to ride and sing

A sleighing song tonight. Oh!

Not all English people celebrate the New Year. Those who do, celebrate it on the 31st of December in one way or another.

Some have a New Year party. A lot of people go to Trafalgar Square to see the Christmas tree. Another way of celebrating the New Year is to go to a New Year's dance. Some people stay at home and watch the celebration of the New Year on television

There is another interesting New Year tradition in the North of England and Scotland (America) It is an old custom of First-Footing. In Great Britain the first visitor who comes into a house on New Year's morning (evening) is called the First Foot. This visitor is very, very important. The English people believe that the First Foot brings luck to the family for the following twelve months.

The First Foot conies very early (late) and the sooner he comes, the better. He brings some symbolic presents of good — usually a piece of bread (2 pieces of bread), a piece of coal, a coin. That means that the family will have good luck, will be happy and rich in the coming year.

The First Foot also brings an evergreen branch as a promise of continuing life. To be a true luck-bringer, the First Foot, must be healthy, young and good-look­ing. He must have black hair or fair hair, but not red hair (he must have red hair).

In England the First Foot must be a man or a boy, not a woman'(woman).
