Article #86 Thanksgiving

第86篇 感恩节

An important holiday in North America is held during the fall, or autumn, season of the year. This holiday is called Thanksgiving. At this time of year, people join with their relatives to reflect upon their good fortune.

北美每到秋季会有一个重要的节日,那就是感恩节。每年的这个时候,人们会和亲戚们一起追思他们的好运气。

Thanksgiving is a holiday that has a long history in North America. It was first celebrated when English settlers arrived in the eastern part of what is now the United States, during the seventeenth century. When they survived the first hard year, they celebrated and gave thanks to God. They invited some of the Native people to their Thanksgiving celebration, because the Native people had helped them to survive during the hard winter.

感恩节是一个在北美有着悠久历史的节日。第一次庆祝它是在17世纪,当时英国殖民者到达现在美国的东部地区。当他们度过了艰难的第一年,他们庆祝并感谢上帝。他们邀请了一些当地人来参加他们的感恩节庆祝活动,因为当地人帮助他们度过了严冬。

The tradition of celebrating Thanksgiving continued and spread throughout North America. Each fall, during the time of the autumn harvest, people celebrated Thanksgiving. They gave thanks for the food of the harvest, and for all the good things in their lives.

庆祝感恩节的传统在北美延续并传播开来。每年秋天,在秋收的时候,人们都会庆祝感恩节。他们感谢丰收的粮食,感谢生命中一切美好的事物。

Today, the tradition of Thanksgiving celebration continues. Families gather to eat a large bird called a turkey. They also eat pumpkin pie. This is a sweet dessert that is made from a large orange vegetable that grows on the ground.

现如今,感恩节庆祝的传统仍在延续。一家人聚在一起吃一种叫火鸡的大鸟。他们也吃一种叫南瓜派的甜点,这是由一种生长在地面上的橙色大蔬菜制成的。

In the United States, Thanksgiving is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November. But the following day, Friday, is also a holiday, and then comes the weekend. In Canada, Thanksgiving is celebrated on the second Monday of October. The reason for the earlier celebration in Canada is that the weather is colder than in the United States. This means that the harvest happens earlier in Canada, so Thanksgiving is held at an earlier date. But in both countries, Thanksgiving is a very pleasant time of year.

在美国,感恩节是在十一月的第四个星期四。但是接下来的星期五也是假日,然后是周末。在加拿大,感恩节是在十月的第二个星期一。加拿大提前庆祝的原因是天气比美国冷。这意味着在加拿大丰收的时间更早,所以感恩节的日期也更早。但在这两个国家,感恩节是一年中非常愉快的时光。
