English Customs and Traditions. El material está siendo procesado. Por favor, vuelve más tarde. English traditions are probably world famous. Lots of people have in their mind a picture of a traditional English person happily following most extraordinary and strange customs almost every minute of the day. Of course, like any stereotype it’s not quite accurate, though it does have the basis of truth. English people are traditional in many ways. Various festivals and holidays are regularly held all over Britain. They are of course always the time when traditions flourish. And none is more traditional than Christmas. The decorations for Christmas start now to go up in shops, homes and offices about longer than a month beforehand, and they all by tradition have to be taken down before the 12th night after Christmas.

Traditions in England have been around for centuries. British traditions are famous worldwide. When one thinks of Britain, you imagine people drinking tea, wearing bowler hats and gorging on fish and chips. Sports, food and music, are tightly knit traditions in Britain. Guy Fawkes Night is celebrated on the 5th of November each year. Guy Fawkes was the mastermind of the Gun Powder Plot in 1605, which failed when he attempted to destroy the House of Parliament.

Customs and Traditions. So many countries so many customs, an English proverb says. The combination of the words tradition & custom means a usual manner of doing smth, a believe of principal, of conduct passed on from generation to generation. English traditions can be subdivided into the traditions dealing with private life of the English national & religious holidays, public celebrations, traditional ceremonies & traditional sporting events  . Some British customs and traditions are famous all over the world. Bowler hats, tea and talking about the weather, for example. But what about the others?

There are many customs and traditions in England. And I would like to tell you some of them. First tradition is called "Wrong side of the bed" When people are bad tempered we say that they must have got out of bed on the wrong side. They came to respect privacy and to value old traditions. They developed a dry wit, a love for personal freedom and a high degree of self-criticism. They have produced some of the world’s greatest writers, scientists, explorers, artists and political figures. His repertoire in the theatre was richer and wore various than in films where directors exploited his gift of a comic only. His Figaro in The Barber of Seville is the best simple of his talent, his ability to create both comic and tragic characters.
