Transcript of England

Main person of religion
The ancestry of the English, considered as an ethnic group, is mixed; it can be traced to the mostly Celtic Romano-Britons, to the eponymous Anglo-Saxons, the Danish-Vikings that formed the Danelaw during the time of Alfred the Great and the Normans, among others. The 19th and 20th centuries, furthermore, brought much new immigration to England.

Culture
Holidays
England has various bank holidays, public holidays, traditional holidays and national events scattered across its calendar. Some date back hundreds of years, while others are more recent. Some are fun and festive, encouraging the locals to dress up and join in the festivities, while yet others are more sombre. These include (where the following dates are mentioned, they apply to 2011).
Main Issues
The growth in the number of immigrants coming to the UK from eastern Europe has presented "major new issues" for the established population, the head of the Commission for Racial Equality said.
Trevor Phillips said that one reason "we are so anxious" about the recent influx was that the new immigrants were competing for better jobs. He said they brought with them their own institutions and were settling in greater numbers in smaller areas.

Typical Food
You may already have several ideas about typical British food, but the most popular dish in England at the moment is… curry!
British food has traditionally been based on beef, lamb, pork, chicken and fish and generally served with potatoes and one other vegetable. The most common and typical foods eaten in Britain include the sandwich, fish and chips, pies like the cornish pasty, trifle and roasts dinners. Some of our main dishes have strange names like Bubble & Squeak and Toad-in-the-Hole.The staple foods of Britain are meat, fish, potatoes, flour, butter and eggs. Many of our dishes are based on these foods.
Religion
Typical Music
Typical dance
Country dance, genre of social dance for several couples, the characteristic form of folk and courtly dances of the British Isles. In England after about 1550, the term country dancing referred to a dance of the upper classes; similar dances, usually called traditional, existed contemporaneously among country people and persisted in popular tradition.
Country dances are performed in three characteristic formations:circular, for an indefinite number of couples, “longways” set, double-file line for an indefinite number of couples, men on one side, women on the other, and geometric formations or sets, usually for two, three, or four couples. The dancers execute a succession of varied patterns of figures. In “progressive-longways” dances, continuous interchange brings a new leading couple to the head of the set with each repetition of the pattern of figures. Round and longways dances predominate in the folk tradition. Longways and geometric sets are more frequent among courtly dances.

Climate
The geology of the United Kingdom is varied and complex. This gives rise to the wide variety of landscapes found across the UK. This variety, coupled with the early efforts of UK based scientists and geologists to understand it, has influenced the naming of many geological concepts, including many of the geological periods (for example, the Ordovician period is named after the Ordovices, a people of early Britain; the Devonian period is named after the county of Devon in south-west England).
Landforms
The main mountains are the Pennine Chain, with several other areas of hills - such as the Lake District, Yorkshire Moors, Dartmoor, The Cotswolds and the Malverns.
There are several Rivers including the Thames and the Severn.
Vegetation
England is very green because it rains nearly every day. Maybe half the countryside is pastureland with green grass. The other fields have crops like wheat, oats, barley, peas.
In certain areas there are orchards, growing apples, pears and plums.
There is still some woodland, with broadleaved trees like oak and ash and elm and beech.
In the north the hills are covered with heather (pink) and gorse (yellow).
But the main strength of England is its variety. Everything changes during a 20 mile drive.
