1b Listen and answer the questions.
Wu Yu: Hey Jane, what do you know about Halloween?
Jane: Oh, it’s a popular festival in North America.
Wu Yu: We don’t really celebrate it in China. I know that it’s in October, right?
Jane: Yes, October 31st. It’s a scary festival, but I think it’s fun!
Wu Yu: What do people do on that day?
Jane: Many people make their houses look scary. They may turn off the lights and light candles. They sometimes also put things like spiders and ghosts around the doors and windows.
Wu Yu: Wow, that sounds quite scary!
Jane: It’s not that bad. Even little kids dress up as ghosts or black cats. They can also dress up as fun things like cartoon character s. Some parents join in the fun by dressing up, too!
Wu Yu: Do parents take their children around the neighborhood to ask for candies and treats?
Jane: Yeah. Kids say“Trick or treat!”at every house. This means that if you don’t give them a treat, they’ll play a trick on you!
Wu Yu: It sounds like a really fun festival! I wonder if it’ll ever become popular in China.

听录音并回答问题。
吴雨:嗨,简,关于万圣节前夕,你知道什么?
简:噢,它是北美一个很受欢迎的节日。
吴雨:在中国我们确实不庆祝它。我知
简:是的,是10月31日。它是一个很恐怖的节日,但我认为它很有趣!
吴雨:人们在那天做什么?
简:许多人使他们的房子看上去很恐怖。他们可能关掉灯,点上蜡烛。他们有时也在门和窗子的周围挂上像蜘蛛和鬼怪之类的东西。
吴雨:哇,那听起来很恐怖!
简:没有那么糟。甚至小孩子都装扮成鬼怪或者黑猫。他们还可以装扮成有趣的东西,像卡通人物。有些父母也装扮起来加入到这种乐趣中!
吴雨:父母带着他们的孩子在社区索要糖果和要求款待吗?
简:是啊。孩子们在每一家门口说“不招待就捣乱!”这意味着如果你不招待他们,他们就会捉弄你!
吴雨:这听起来像是一个非常有趣的节日!我想知道它是否会在中国变得受欢迎。

The Spirit of Christmas
圣诞节的意义

Many would agree that when we think of Christmas, we probably think of gift s, Christmas trees and Santa Claus. But behind all these things lies the true meaning of Christmas: the importance of sharing and is perhaps the best example of this.
许多人会赞同(这个看法),每当我们想起圣诞节,极有可能想到的是礼物、圣诞树和圣诞老人。但在所有这些事物的背后隐藏着圣诞节的真正含义———重要的是把爱和欢乐带给周边的人们,并和他们一同分享。《圣诞欢歌》这个故事可能就是最好的例子。

A Christmas Carol is a famous novel written by Charles Dickens. It is about an old man named Scrooge who never laughs or smiles. He is mean and only thinks about himself, and doesn’t treat others nicely. He just cares about whether he can make more money. And he hates Christmas. One Christmas Eve, Scrooge sees the ghost of Jacob Marley, his dead business partner. Marley used to be just like Scrooge, so he was punished after he died. He warns Scrooge to change his ways if he doesn’t want to end up like him. He also tells Scrooge to expect three spirits to visit him.
《圣诞欢歌》是查尔斯.狄更斯所写的一部著名短篇小说,它讲的是一个名叫斯科鲁奇的老头的故事。斯科鲁奇从无笑容,他十分吝啬,只想着自己。他对待其他人也不友善。他只关心自己能否赚到更多的钱财,而且他还讨厌圣诞节。在一个圣诞前夜里,他看到了已经逝去的生意伙伴雅克布.马利的亡灵,马利过去就向斯科鲁奇一样,所以他死后受到了惩罚。马利告诫斯科鲁奇,若是不想和他落得同样的下场,就应该改变他的行事方式。他还告诉斯科鲁奇要做好准备,夜间会有三个精灵光临拜访。

That night, three ghosts visit Scrooge. First, the Ghost of Christmas Past takes him back to his childhood and reminds Scrooge of his happier days as a child. Then the second spirit, the Ghost of Christmas Present, takes him to see how others are spending Christmas this year. Everyone is happy, even poor people. The last one, the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come, takes him to the future. He sees that he is dead but nobody cares. Scrooge is so scared that he wakes up in his bed and finds out it is already the next morning on Christmas Day!
那天夜里,三个圣诞精灵拜访了斯科鲁奇。首先,“圣诞过去之灵”将他带回到他的童年时代,让他回顾了自己儿时的快乐时光;接着,第二个精灵,“圣诞现在之灵”,领他去看这一年其他人如何欢度圣诞;最后一个精灵,“圣诞未来之灵”,领他进入未来,他看到自己死了,但人们毫不在意。斯科鲁奇害怕至极,从睡梦惊醒,发现此时竟是第二天圣诞清晨!

He decides to change his life and promises to be a better person. He happily celebrates Christmas with his relatives. He also gives gift s to people in need. He now treats everyone with kindness and warmth, spreading love and joy everywhere he goes. And that is the true spirit of Christmas!
他决心改变自己的人生,承诺去做一个善人。他高兴地与自己的亲戚一起庆祝圣诞,还把礼物送给需要的人们。现在的他对每一个人都充满善意和温暖,走到哪里便把爱和欢乐带到哪里。这便是圣诞的真正含义!
