St. Patrick’s Day is March 17. Irish Americans remember St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. People wear green. Green is one of the national colors of Irelandand it also means the beginning of the spring. There are parades. People sing and dance, and wear Irish clothes and eat Irish food.

Labor Day is the first Monday in September. In 1868 the first labor union to defend worker’s rights was started. Workers got the rights to an eight-hour workday. Most people do not go to work on Labor Day. They have a free-day weekend. In some Sities there is a parade. Some people go to the beach, and others have a barbecue or a picnic.
Columbus Day is the second Monday in October. On this day Americans remember Christopher Columbus, an Italian explorer. He sailes west across the Atlantic to find a faster route to travel to Asia from Europe. On October 11, in 1492, he reached some islands near North America. He thought he was in India and he called the people of the islands Indians.
Halloween is October 31/ The Celt believed that on this day ghosts walked the earth and mingled with the living. At night people dressed up in costumes and tried to look like souls of the dead. Today people, especially children, still wear costumes on this day and have masquerade parties.
Veterans’ Day is November 11. On this day Americans give thanks to war veterans for peace. At 11:00 in the morning, most Americans observe a moment of silence to remember those who fought for peace.
Thanksgiving is November 11. On this day all Americans stay home with their families and eat a big dinner. This is Thanksgiving Day. The pilgrims celebrated the first Thanksgiving Day in the fall of 1621. The pilgrims sailed to America on board the "Mayflower" ship for religious freedom. They were among the first European settlers in America. There were people living in America before the pilgrims arrived. These people were the Native American Indians. The pilgrims first winter in the New World was very difficult. They had arrived too late to grow many crops. Without fresh food half of the pilgrims died. The following spring the Indians taught the pilgrims how to hunt, fish, plant and survive in America. The crops did well and in the fall of 1621 pilgrims had a great harvest. They were thankful and decided to celebrate with a Thanksgiving feast. They prepared a dinner of turkey, corn, beans and pumpkins. They invited their Indian friends to share this feast. The Indians brought food for the feast too (they even brought popcorn!) Americans still celebrate Thanksgiving Day in the fall. It is celebrated on the fourth Thursday in November. Turkey is still the main dish and pumpkin pie is the most popular dessert.

Чтение стихотворения о празднике День Благодарения
Indian: November has recently ended…And now you can say to us, what holiday took place on the fourth Thursday in November?
(Ответ зрителей): Thanksgiving!
Pilgrim: You are right, It is Thanksgiving – the old and kind traditional American holiday! You can close your eyes and imagine!...
Thanksgiving Day is here today,
the great parade is under way,
and though it's drizzling quite a bit,
I'm sure that I'll see all of it.
Great ballons are floating by,
cartoon creatures stories high,
Mickey Mouse and Mother Goose,
Snoopy and mammoth moose.
The band are marching, here they come,
pipers pipe and drummers drum,
hear the tubas and the flutes,
see the clowns in silly suits.
It's pouring now, but not on me,
I'm just as dry as I can be,
I watch and watch, but don't get wet,
I'm watching on your … that!

(When corn is ripe, its time to reap.
Harvest comes not every day, though it is every year.
Its better to give than to receive.
Gratitude, thankfulness, compassion, sharing, religion.
Когда зерно созрело, время его убирать.
Урожай приходит не каждый день, хотя он бывает каждый год.
Лучше отдавать, чем получать.
Признательность, благодарность, сочувствие, участие, религия.)

Заключительное слово. Чтение стихотворения “Thank You”
Indian: And, finally, the time to say good-bye is already coming…
Pilgrim: The time to say good-bye and thank you!...
For all my hands can hold
And melons gold,
Both ripe and sweet,
Peas and beans
So good to eat!
For all my eyes can see
Field and tree,
In sea-deep sky,
For all my ears can hear -
Birds’ song echoing
Far and near,
Songs of little
Stream, big sea,
Duck and bee!
