(1)关于圣诞节的情景对话 同学们可以模仿这两位同学的谈话内容,以圣诞树为主题练习自己的口语表达。

Christmas Tree 圣诞树

Fred and Anjia are talking about Christmas trees.

Fred: Anja, so what's it like to decorate your Christmas tree in Switzerland? (Anjia,在瑞士是怎么样装饰圣诞树的呢?)

Anja: Ah, Christmas tree! Oh, that's so nice, right? Like, I remember in my family, you know, we have the special, like space in our house just for the Christmas tree, just for Christmas time.

(噢,圣诞树啊!那是很漂亮的啊,对吧?就像在我家,你知道,会有个特别的空间在圣诞节的时候是用来放圣诞树的。)

Fred: A special space for the Christmas tree! (一个特别的空间给圣诞树的!)

Anja: Yes, indeed! And I remember I always went with my parents to buy the Christmas tree, maybe, three days before Christmas.

(确实是的!而且我还记得我会在圣诞前三天和父母去买圣诞树。) Fred: OK, three days before. (好的,三天前。)

Anja: Yes, and we wouldn't put it actually until Christmas day, like I remember how me and my mother and the rest of my family, we went to church and then we would come back. My father wouldn't go to church and the door would be closed and then we open the door and suddenly there would be the Christmas tree. So actually, you know, like, I never knew that my father actually put the Christmas tree. Of course, it was like some angel or something like that, but actually I never decorated the Christmas tree because an angel was doing that for us... as in my father.

(是啊,而且我们直到圣诞节才会把它摆出来。我还记得我和妈妈,还有其余的家人一起去教会礼拜。但是我父亲没去,(他在家装饰圣诞树),所以我们以开家门就看见一颗圣诞树,就像有天使把树装饰好。当然,我知道是我父亲做的。所以因为有父亲帮忙的原因,所以我从来没有装饰过圣诞树。)

Fred: So when you were a young child, you always thought that some kind of angel would come down to your house and decorate your Christmas tree. 1

(所以,在你很小的时候,你会像其他小朋友一样幻想会有天使来到你家帮你装饰圣诞树。)

Anja: That's right. During the time I was in church, and did it for us. And it's really pretty, and it has a lot of lights and it's really colorful. You know some people like it one specific color: in red or blue, but our Christmas tree always had a lot of different colors. It's really nice. What about you? How is your Christmas tree like in your family?

(是啊,在教堂的时候,天使为我们而做。圣诞树真的太漂亮了。树上有很多颜色各异的小灯。。。 你呢?你家里的圣诞树是怎么样的啊?)

Fred: Ah, it's just great. It's a bit different because the whole family would gather and then put up the Christmas tree together.

(噢,也是很棒!不过有一点不一样的是,我们会全家聚集在一起,然后一起装饰圣诞树。) Anja: Oh, really? (真的吗?)

Fred: We would decorate the Christmas tree together.

(是啊,我们会一起装饰圣诞树。) Anja: Yes. (哦。)

Fred: Maybe too or three days before Christmas, we would all go to the store or just use what we already had and then we would all gather together and put up the Christmas tree together listening to Frank Sinatra's best Christmas songs, and actually, the size of the Christmas tree was the most interesting part.

(大概在圣诞前的三天,我们就会一起去逛商店,或者把已经准备好的东西拿出来,然后一起装饰圣诞树。。)

Anja: Oh, is it? Is it really big or...

Fred: It was a really, really big Christmas tree, and my father used to love those big Christmas trees and then it would take so much time to decorate it. Think about a fifteen foot Christmas tree, how much time you have to spend to decorate it.

(它是一颗很大的圣诞树,我父亲喜欢大的圣诞树,可能这样我们可以在一起装饰的时间久一点…)

Anja: Oh, wow that's a tall tree. Fred: Yeah, but it's a lot of fun.

(3)Thanksgiving Day 感恩节

In the United States, the fourth Thursday in November is called Thanksgiving Day. On that day, Americans give thanks for the blessings they have enjoyed during the year. Thanksgiving Day is usually a family day. People always celebrate with big dinners and happy reunions. Pumpkin pie and Indian pudding are traditional

Thanksgiving desserts. Relatives from other cities, students who have been away at school, and many other Americans travel a long distance to spend the holiday at home.

Thanksgiving is a holiday celebrated in much of North America, generally

observed as an expression of gratitude, usually to God. The most common view of its 3

origin is that it was to give thanks to God for the bounty of the autumn harvest. In the United States, the holiday is celebrated on the fourth Thursday in November. In

Canada, where the harvest generally ends earlier in the year, the holiday is celebrated on the second Monday in October, which is observed as Columbus Day or protested as Indigenous Peoples Day in the United States.

Thanksgiving is traditionally celebrated with a feast shared among friends and family. In the United States, it is an important family holiday, and people often travel

across the country to be with family members for the holiday. The Thanksgiving holiday is generally a "four-day" weekend in the United States, in which Americans are given the relevant Thursday and Friday off. Thanksgiving is almost entirely

celebrated at home, unlike the Fourth of July or Christmas, which are associated with a variety of shared public experiences.

感恩节的由来要一直追溯到美国历史的发端。1620年,著名的“五月花”号船满载不堪忍受英国国内宗教迫害的清教徒102人到达美洲。1620年和1621年之交的冬天,他们遇到了难以想象的困难,处在饥寒交迫之中,冬天过去时,活下来的移民只有50来人。这时,心地善良的印第安人给移民送来了生活必需品,还特地派人教他们怎样狩猎、捕鱼和种植玉米、南瓜。在印第安人的帮助下,移民们终于获得了丰收,在欢庆丰收的日子,按照宗教传统习俗,移民规定了感谢上帝的日子,并决定为感谢印第安人的真诚帮助,邀请他们一同庆祝节日。 在第一个感恩节的这一天,印第安人和移民欢聚一堂,他们在黎明时鸣放礼炮,列队走进一间用作教堂的屋子,虔诚地向上帝表达谢意,然后点起篝火举行盛大宴会。第二天和第三天又举行了摔跤、赛跑、唱歌、跳舞等活动。第一个感恩节非常成功。其中许多庆祝方式流传了300多年,一直保留到今天。

初时感恩节没有固定日期,由各州临时决定,直到美国独立后,感恩节才成为全国性的节日。 1863年,美国总统林肯正式宣布感恩节为国定假日。届时,家家团聚,举国同庆,其盛大、热烈的情形,不亚于中国人过春节。
