  • Hello everybody, my name is Crown, and today were talking about Christmas!

    大家好,我是Crown,今天我們要看的是聖誕節!

  • It’s been a while since weve made a vlog, and since it’s Christmas and were at the end of the year.

    已經有陣子沒有拍影片了,不過聖誕節到了,又加上是年末,

  • Ta-da~

    我們來了!

  • So, what is Christmas? As you can see, there’s the word Christ inside; therefore, the real meaning is, the Mass of Christ.

    所以,什麼是聖誕節呢? 如你所見,Christmas裡有個Christ的字,所以真正意思是"耶穌基督彌撒"(基督(Christ)做彌撒(Mass),彌撒是為死去的人的靈魂禱告、唱詩及念經)。

  • To put it more simply, it's the celebration of Jesus Christ’s birth.

    簡單來說,就是慶祝耶穌的誕生。

  • Every year on the 24 and 25 of December, we have Christmas Eve and Christmas Day,

    每年的12月24日是平安夜,而12月25是聖誕節,

  • but actually in the States, Christmas season starts off fairly early.

    但實際上美國很早就在準備慶祝聖誕節。

  • So, today I’ve compiled 8 things that people in the United States do during the Christmas season, let’s get started!

    所以,今天,我整理了8件美國人在聖誕節期間會做的事情。我們一起來看看吧!

  • Yay!~

    耶~!

  • 1 Shopping!

    第一件事:購物!

  • The Christmas shopping season starts a day after Thanksgiving in the States.

    聖誕節血拚就在美國感恩節過後。

  • It’s the end of the year and here comes Christmas and New Year, what better things to do than some crazy holiday shopping?

    感恩節在年末,隨之而來的是聖誕節和新年,在假期時什麼事情能比血拚更來得重要呢?

  • But I guess it’s basically the same in every country.

    但我想在每個國家都是一樣的。

  • 2 Santa Claus!

    第二件事情:聖誕老人!

  • In the states, Santa Claus is a real big deal for the children.

    在美國,聖誕老人對小孩是非常重要的。

  • A lot of Santas can be seen in department stores or communities

    可以在很多地方看到聖誕老人,像是在百貨公司或是社區中,

  • and the parents will bring their kids up to the Santa and let them sit on his lap.

    而父母親會帶小孩去見聖誕老公公,讓他們坐在聖誕老公公的大腿上,

  • Then the kids will tell Santa Claus what kind of presents they want this Christmas.

    然後小孩會告訴聖誕老公公他們想要什麼樣的聖誕禮物。

  • Children believe that the real Santa will come put presents under the Christmas tree on Christmas Eve night,

    小孩們相信,在聖誕節的平安夜晚上,真正的聖誕老公公會到他們的家裡,把禮物放在聖誕樹下,

  • then the next morning, on Christmas Day, they can go unwrap their Christmas presents.

    然後到了聖誕節當天,他們可以打開他們的聖誕禮物。

  • 3 Greeting Cards!

    第三件事情:祝賀卡!

  • I’m pretty sure that Taiwanese don’t have this trend to send greeting cards, but it’s a must-do tradition in the Western world.

    我非常確定台灣人沒有寄聖誕賀卡的習慣,但這是在西方國家一定要做的傳統。

  • Most of the time, a normal Christmas greeting card will be sent to your family and friends to let them know how youre doing lately.

    大多時候,通常寄給家人或朋友的聖誕賀卡,是要讓他們知道你的最近近況。

  • Other times, they just send a family photo.

    其他時候,他們就貼上一張全家福來做為聖誕賀卡。

  • 4 Candy!

    第四件事情:糖果!

  • I love sweet things, chocolate, cake, candyyou name it.

    我很喜歡甜食,像是巧克力、蛋糕、糖果...任何你想得到的我都愛。

  • So, one of my favorite things about Christmas is all the sweet things you can eat.

    所以,在所有這些聖誕節的東西之中,我最開心是可以吃到很多甜食,

  • There’s the gingerbread man; there’s the homemade cookies with frostings;

    像是薑餅人、手作糖霜餅乾、

  • and there’s the candy cane, which is the ultimate Christmas candy of all time.

    或是拐杖糖(最重要的聖誕節糖果)。

  • Notice how the candy cane is shaped like...

    有注意到拐杖糖的形狀嗎?

  • well, a cane, of course.

    恩,對,拐杖。

  • That’s because it symbolizes a shepherd’s crook which is a reference to how Christ is our shepherd.

    這是象徵著牧羊人的牧羊杖,像是耶穌就是我們生命的牧人,保護而引導我們的一生。

  • Also, if you turn it upside down, you can see that it’s the letter J, this is a reference to the first letter of the word Jesus.

    另一方面,如果把它倒過來看,就是英文字母的"J",也就是英文耶穌 Jesus 的第一個字母。

  • 5 Food!

    第五件事情:菜餚。

  • One of the must-have food for a Christmas meal is turkey.

    火雞是聖誕節必要的菜餚。

  • That’s not a turkey! Alright, it’s a chicken, but I don’t have a turkey.

    (那不是火雞! 對啦,是一隻雞,但現在我沒有火雞)

  • Is a turkey.

    是隻火雞。

  • Americans eat turkey both for Thanksgiving and Christmas, so I would say that turkey’s among the top choices for a celebration meal.

    美國人在感恩節和聖誕節都會吃火雞,所以我想在慶祝節日時,火雞是不可或缺的菜餚。

  • Besides turkey, the eggnog, also called egg milk punch, is also always enjoyed on a Christmas meal.

    除了火雞、蛋酒,又可稱為奶酒,這也是一道美味的聖誕餐點。

  • I’ve never had an eggnog before, but it’s a sweetened dairy-based beverage made with milk, cream, sugar, whipped eggs and alcohol.

    我從來都沒有喝過蛋酒,但是基本上它是個甜的乳製飲品,是由牛奶、奶油、糖、打發的雞蛋、和酒精所作成。

  • 6 Caroling!

    第六件事情:報佳音

  • Christmas carols have always been a big part of this holiday. Children and adults alike all enjoy singing carols to celebrate this day.

    在這個節慶中,聖誕歌頌是非常重要的,小孩和大人都喜歡唱頌歌來慶祝這一天。

  • People, especially Christians, will visit house to house caroling to spread the joy of Christmas.

    特別是基督信徒,會拜訪一家一家的人,對他們唱著詩歌報佳音。

  • 7 Stockings!

    第七件事情:襪子!

  • Stockings are something very important to the children because this is a container for their Christmas presents and candy.

    對於小孩而言,襪子是不可缺少的東西,因為它可以裝他們的聖誕禮物和糖果。

  • Most of the time, well see stockings hung on a fireplace mantel or by bedposts and this will be done on Christmas Eve.

    大多時候,我們會在聖誕平安夜時,看到襪子掛在壁爐架上或是床頭上。

  • 8 Christmas Tree!

    第八件事情:聖誕樹!

  • Last but not least, the Christmas tree. The tree is probably the most iconic item about Christmas.

    最後一點是聖誕樹,但是也同樣的重要。在聖誕節最有象徵性的物品就是樹。

  • If you see a pine tree, you would immediately think about Christmas.

    如果你看到松樹時,你就會馬上想到聖誕節。

  • The Christmas tree is all about the cute little ornaments you’d decorate it with, which are baubles, tinsels, and Christmas lights.

    聖誕樹是有著很多小小的裝飾品點綴著,像是裝飾球、金銀箔、和聖誕燈。

  • Also, decorating the tree is a perfect time to spend with your loved ones.

    另一方面,裝飾聖誕樹的過程中,也可以同時增進與親人的情感。

  • So, these are the eight things related to Christmas in the States, and though things are not that much different in Taiwan,

    所以,這8件是有關美國聖誕節的事物,雖然這些事物聽起來可能與台灣沒有很大的不同,
