In my thesis work I try to present how some English holidays are celebrated and origin of them. I collect various number of activities to show different ways of involving holidays in language teaching. I want to prove that these activities improve students' reading, writing, speaking and listening skills and it helps them to enrich their own personalities. It is obvious that studying the traditions and customs takes us nearer to understand the character and lifestyle of a country. To be competent in speaking a foreign language does not mean knowing the words and grammar only. It involves knowledge of the culture of the target country. As the language is the main instrument of communication and it is also an important element of culture, it is self-evident that teaching foreign cultures is possible in the process of language teaching. I hope that I can write in my conclusion: it is worth learning about holidays in the English lessons.
