New Year

新年

“Happy New Year!” “The same to you, and many more!” This greeting is heard all over the world on New Year’s Day. The words may be different and dates may not be the same, but New Year greetings everywhere express the hope for new and happy life.

“新年快乐!”在新年这天,全世界都能听到这样的祝贺声。用词也许有些差别,日期也不见得完全一样,但是各地新年的祝贺都表达了对新的一年快乐生活的希望。

Down through history, different peoples alike have happily welcomed the coming of a new year. The very early people in Britain started a new year from the first day of spring. In 45 B.C., January I was chosen as the first day of the year. It has not been changed in all parts of the western world ever since.

追溯历史,不同国家的人民都一样愉快地迎接新年的到来。英国的早期先民在春天的第一天开始新的一年。在公元前45年,1月1日被选作一年之始。此后,这在西方世界的所有地方都一直没有改变。

Many people like to spend their last hours of the old year and the first hours of the new year drinking and having dinner with friends and relatives. New Year’s Eve festivals often go on until two or three o’clock in the morning.

许多人喜欢和朋友及亲属一起饮酒,一起用餐,来度过旧年的最后几个小时和新年的前几个小时。新年前夜的欢庆活动常常延续到凌晨两三点钟。

Many old English traditions for New Year party are still well kept today. Among them are the giving of gifts, exchanging of New Year’s cards. and the singing of songs.

英国许多新年聚会的古老传统至今还完好地保持着,其中有赠送礼物、交换新年贺卡和唱歌。

A new year is a new start. New Year’s Day has been for starting new programmes and making New Year’s plans. Good examples of New Year’s plans are to spend less money, give up smoking, eat only the food good for health, or be better to others, but it is a pity that some people’s strong wishes to “turn over a new life” often go away before the new year is well started.

新年是新的开始。一直以来,人们在元旦开始新的计划,制订新年的规划比如少花钱、戒烟、只吃健康的食品、更善待他人。但是遗憾的是,有些人“开始新生活”的强烈愿望,在新年才刚刚开始不久,就被抛诸脑后了。
