For this year's last post, let's look into some interesting facts about Christmas which we read about in class:
- England: mummering. & crackers
- Scotland: Hogmanay  , First Footing & singing "Auld Lang Syne"
- Ireland: midnight mass, St Stephen's Day, Epiphany... and this is a wren

- Australia: the "Swag Man". He spends all winter under Uluru with his merry dingoes (wild dogs) and then at Christmas time, he gets in his huge four-wheel drive and sets off through the red dust to deliver his presents
- Canada: maple syrup            MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!

Watch this video from the NHS webpage to find out what the differences are. To do this listening exercise it is important you turn off the subtitles by clicking on the ‘T’ at the bottom of the video. Otherwise you will be practising reading; you can turn on the subtitles after doing the exercise to check what you heard.
