The highest executive power in the United States is vested in the President of the United States, who is elected for a term of 4 years by electors of each state. The Presidential election is held every four year in November. The President of the USA must be a native-born citizen, resident in the country for 14 years and at least 35 years old.

The legislative power belongs to the Congress of the United States consisting of two chambers: the Senate and the House of Representatives. The Senate is composed of two members from each state elected for a term of 6 years, one third being elected every two years. The number of representatives from each state to the House of Representatives depends on the number of people in each particular state.

The Supreme Court is the highest judicial organ of the United States and the head of the judicial branch of power. The Supreme Court consists of the Chief Justice of the USA and a number of Associate Justices. The United States are divided into 11 judicial circuits, each one being served with a Federal Court of Appeals. The district courts are the lowest ones in the Federal court sys­tem. Most of the criminal and civil cases are tried by these courts. Each state has a constitution similar to the Constitution of the entire nation and all the power in each state is divided into executive, legislative and judicial. The head of each state is the governor of the state.

Others just walk about in the streets in the streets and make merry. It is a trdition for many people to make New Year resolutions (to eat less, to work more, to do sport regularly, etc.). Though few people keep their New Year resolutions.

Martin Luther King’s Birthday. Martin Luther King was a famous fighter for civil  rights. In the 1950’s and 1960’s he organized the civil rights movements – the struggle for equal rights for black Americans. In 1968 he was assassinated.

Memorial Day. On Memorial day Americans honour the soldiers killed in war. There are always parades on this day. Memorial day is celebrated on the last Monday in May, and that’s why it marks the beginning of the summer season. Many people spend this day on the beach.

Independence Day.  The fourth of July, or Independence Day, is, of course, the most important American holiday. It was on the 4th  of July in1776 that the American colonies declared their independence from Britain. The 4th of July is a traditional day for family picnics, and, at night, fireworks.

Labour day. On the 1st Monday in September Americans celebrate Labour Day, which honours the American worker. While Memorial Day marks the beginning of summer, Labour Day marks the end of it. The school year starts the day after Labour Day.

Columbus Day. Columbus Day marks the coming of Columbus’s ship to America in 1492. Many Italian-Americans and Hispanic-Americans are especially enthusiastic on Columbus Day.

Halloween. Halloween, which is celebrated on the 31st of October, is not an official holiday, but, it is a special day. Children enjoy it. They dress in fancy costumes as witches, ghosts, or other monsters, pirates, or characters from TV programmes, and so on. The windows of many houses are brightly decorated on Halloween. In the evening groups of chldren go from house to house,  knock at the doors and say, “Trick or treat”. (Which means “if you don’t treat us to something tasty, we will play a trick on you.” Of course, the people give them something nice.

Thanksgiving. In 1620  the Mayflower brought  a group of Pilgrims to America. The Pilgrims founded a settlement in Massachusetts. They arrived late in November,  and it was too late to plant crops. It was very difficult for the Pilgrims to survive the first winter, but they were greatly helped by the Indians who lived nearby. The Indians showed the Pilgrims where to fish, and in spring helped them to plant crops. The next November, when the Pilgrims had gathered the crops, they invited the Indians to a great feast. It was the first Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving is celebrated every year in November, on the 4th Thursday. Families make a big feast, which traditionally includes roast turkey, a sweet sauce made of cranberries, and pumpkin pie.

Chrismas. On Chrismas many families get together. There is a tradition to give presents on Chrismas. People often start buying presents after Thanksgiving. On Christmas many families like to have a decorated Christmas tree in their houses. They also bake special Christmas cakes.

Children believe that their presents come from Santa Claus, who lives in the North Pole, and on the night before Christmas he comes in a sledge which is pulled by  reindeer. He goes down the chimneys of houses and leaves presents for the children who have been good.

Mother’s day. People honour their mothers on the 2nd Sunday in May. People usually buy a nice greeting card and flowers to their mothers. Men make a big dinner and family eat together with grandparents. It’s their way of saying, “Thanks for being such a great Mom!”
