    • Good idea! 11.4 Reading and writing Unit11 World festivals 1 Match the pictures to the texts. 1 2 3 4 5 a Throughout the spring and early summer, an annual tradition is carried out in many of the fishing ports of Japan. This colourful event is called the Haari, or Dragon Boat Races. The tradition has its beginnings in an old legend about trying to rescue a poet who was drowning. ___ 5 b The Lord of Miracles Procession in Lima, Peru, is the largest religious procession in South America. Worshippers carry the painted image of a black Christ which survived an earthquake in 1746. People dress in purple tunics and carry the image through the city in a series of one-day processions in October. ___ c The Stanga Games, an annual competition since 1924, takes place on the Swedish island of Gotland in the Baltic Sea. In the Games, people compete in ancient square-and-border-ball, pole throwing, pentathlon, and other games for fun. Many of the games originate from the Viking Age. ___ d The Munich Oktoberfest is the biggest public festival in the world. Each year it is attended by around six million visitors, who drink around eight million litres of beer and consume over four hundred thousand pork sausages — mostly in the ‘beer tents’ put up by the traditional Munich breweries. ___ e Diwali — a Hindu Festival of Lights — is celebrated in October or November in almost all the regions of India and is like a New Year festival. It reminds people that light can end the darkness of ignorance. Every home is lit with the orange glow of oil lamps. In other countries like Thailand, Indonesia and Malaysia, it is celebrated in their own traditional ways. ___ 2 Correct the sentences. a Gotland is in Iceland. _______________________________________________________________________ False — it’s part of Sweden. b The Lord of the Miracles Procession celebrates something which happened more than 250 years ago. ____________________________________________________________________________________________ c The Diwali Festival is celebrated the same way in all countries. __________________________________ __________________________________________________________________________________________ d The Dragon Boat Races are based on a legend about dragons in Japan. __________________________ _____________________________________________________________________________________________ e About five million people drink around six million litres of beer in the Oktoberfest. ________________ _____________________________________________________________________________________________ f Many of the Stanga Games were originally from the Vikings. ___________________________________ g Diwali is similar to Christmas . _______________________________________________________________ h Haari is celebrated in the mountains of Japan. _______________________________________________ © Richmond Publishing, 2004 PHOTOCOPIABLE 55
    • Good idea! 11.5 Culture Unit11 Every country has its day 1 Match these countries with their national flower. Canada England France Ireland Scotland Wales a b c d e f Wales 2 Read the text and invent your own ‘National Day’. What kind of celebrations would you have? When would it be? Would you have special food? And music? England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales all have their own national days and these days correspond to the four patron saints of the islands. St David’s Day. Wales. 1st March. On this day, everyone in Wales wears a daffodil on their shirt. The Welsh flag with its big red dragon can be seen on many buildings. There is a national parade in Cardiff (the Welsh capital) and school children everywhere dress up in the national costume and dance in the streets. The Welsh love to sing, dance and recite poetry and so, on St David’s Day there are hundreds of competitions all over the country. St David died March 1st, 1120, at the age of one hundred. St Patrick’s Day. Ireland. 17th March. Everybody’s heard of St Patrick. But did you know he was born in Wales and was sold into slavery by the Irish when he was sixteen? He finally escaped to France and returned later to Ireland, where he spent thirty years setting up schools and churches. Today, St Patrick’s Day is celebrated all over the world. In Dublin, there is a week-long festival of street theatre, fireworks, visual arts and a treasure hunt. In New York, the St Patrick’s Day parade attracts over one million people. St Andrew’s Day. Scotland. 30th November. Andrew was one of the twelve apostles: he was crucified by the Romans. Legend says that some of his bones were taken to Scotland by a Greek monk. The monk was told to take the bones as far away as possible. At that time, travelling was slow and Scotland was very far. Andrew became the patron saint of Scotland in 1385. On 30th November the Scots dance to bagpipe music and drink whisky — Scottish whisky, of course. St George’s Day. England. 23rd April. St George’s Day has been celebrated in England since 1222, when the city of Oxford decided to declare it a public holiday. The day is traditionally celebrated with feasts and country markets where people sell fruit and vegetables. There is also traditional dancing and food. Not much is known about St George, except that he lived in the fourth century and died in Palestine. They say that he fought and killed a dragon, but ... that’s just a legend! 56 © Richmond Publishing, 2004 PHOTOCOPIABLE
