CONCLUSION
Having studied this theme I came to the conclusion that there are a number of differences in these holidays in three countries, though British and American customs are almost the same. I showed all these differences in my tables and I came to the conclusion that the differences are not huge, especially differences in celebration of New Year.

MY HAPPY WINTER HOLIDAYS
I can say that winter is my favorite season of the year. First of all, I really enjoy the crisp snow outside. Together with my friends we always make a snowman, throw snowballs at each other and go sledging from the backyard hill. Secondly, I’m quite good at such winter sports as skiing and skating. At weekends, I go to the nearest ice-rink with my friends and we can spend several hours skating there.
