— Hello, Masha!
— Nice to see you, Vadim!
— I haven't seen you for ages! Where have you been?
— I visited my relatives in Great Britain.
— Great! What did you like the most of all?
— Holidays, of course. They brought me a lot of fun. My favourite holiday was Shrove Tuesday.
— I have never heard of it.
— Well, it is really a joyful holiday. It is the day of pancakes.
— Oh, I also like the pancakes. Now I understand.
— Everyone knows that pancakes are tasty, but do you know that in England on Shrove Thursday, people fight for a pancake?
— Fight for a pancake?
— Yes, the pancake is tossed into the air and the one who has the biggest piece of it, is the winner.
— That is really a very funny tradition!
— I also liked the pancake race. We organized it at home. My granny won.
— Did you try as well?
— Yes, but I think I need more training!
— Well, you could win next year!
