Lesson Transcript

Hi, everybody! In this lesson, you'll learn some important phrases for Christmas in the US and some valuable cultural tips.
First, let's hear the name of the holiday.
Christmas
[slowly] Christmas
Christmas is traditionally celebrated as a religious holiday.
This involves traditional customs, such as decorating Christmas trees, putting lights on shops and houses, getting gifts from Santa, church services, and family dinners. Some places even hold Christmas parades.
On Christmas, or "Christmas Day," people in the US greet each other by saying
"Merry Christmas!"
(slow) "Merry Christmas!"
When you meet someone on Christmas day, be sure to greet them with this phrase.
In the US, people celebrate the holiday with their own special events and customs. The most popular food to eat on Christmas is...
"turkey"
(slow) "turkey."
Roasted turkey is a popular dish for family Christmas dinners.
The whole turkey is roasted and then carved during the meal. It's served with dressing, also called "stuffing," and cranberry sauce. Other popular side dishes are corn on the cob and mashed potatoes.
Let's wrap up this lesson by recapping what you've learned. Listen to the words and repeat after me.
