Сочинение на тему Let’s talk about Belarusian customs and traditions
Traditions and customs of a nation tell us about its history and culture. When something happens in the life of a nation people start celebrating it and a new holiday emerges. Victory day and Independence day are two examples of this kind. The end of the great patriotic war and gaining independence are the main dates for us. They are our modern traditions. Many people take part in celebrating them. New Year’s day and Woman’s day are popular too, but they are international ones so I am not going to talk about them. They are celebrated worldwide and don’t help us stand out as a nation. Of course there are loads old time traditions and customs. The most famous traditions of them are Kalyady, Maslenitsa, Kupala Night. They are based on ancient slavonic rituals. They are colourful and attract tourists’ attention, but I have to say that they are our distant past and are not longer followed by the locals.
