啊?你不知道吗?中国的端午节快到了。端午节是中国最古老和传统的节日之一呢。

O: I have heard some amazing things about this festival, but can you tell me more? I'm really interested in this festival. When and how do you celebrate it?

哦,我是有听说过一些跟端午节有关的趣事。我对端午节非常感兴趣,具体是什么时间?你们如何庆祝的?可以再多给我讲讲吗?

K: The Dragon Boat Festival, the 5th of May in lunar month, has had a history of more than 2,000 years.

农历五月初五的端午节是一个拥有超过2000多年历史的传统节日。

O: 2000 YEARS? That’s a long time. Hang on, lunar calendar ? that’s in two weeks?

2000年?那相当久远了。等等,农历?那不就是两周之后?

O: OK, and how do you celebrate it?

嗯,那你们是怎么庆祝的呢?

K: Well, we’re gonna eat Zongzi as a traditional food on that day and there’re many dragon boat racings happening all over China, which is really exciting.

我们会在端午节当天吃一种传统食物,粽子。并且在当天全国各地都会举行赛龙舟,真的很刺激啊。

O: Kenan, What is Zongzi?

柯南,什么是粽子?

K: It’s glutinous rice dumpling with many different ingredients like bean paste, dates, meat and nuts.

这是一种糯米团子,里面可以加很多不同的馅,比如豆沙,红枣,肉和坚果。

O: Sounds delicious. You’re making me hungry now. I have to try this Zongzi. What about the dragon boat racing? Can you tell me anything about this?

哇,听起来很好吃啊。听你这么一说我都饿了。我一定要尝一尝粽子。那能跟我说说赛龙舟是怎么样的吗?

K: Dragon boats are named because the fore and stern of the boat is in a shape of traditional Chinese dragon. A team of people works the oars in a bid, to reach the destination before other teams.

龙舟的船头和船尾是以传统的中国龙为造型,龙舟因此得名。一群人会争先恐后一起划浆,都希望赶在其他队伍之前到达目的地。

O: Wow, sounds really amazing. I really want to see this racing. Oh,hang on, I just used Baidu, and have seen some other traditions and customs, such as hanging up icons of Zhong Kui, hanging mugwort and calamus, taking long walks, and wearing perfumed medicine bags.

哇,听起来真的很刺激啊。我真的很想去看看龙舟比赛。等等,我刚查了百度,据说还有很多传统习俗啊,比如挂钟馗图,挂艾蒿和菖蒲,长途走步,还有佩戴香水药袋。

K: Yeah, yeah, all of these activities together with the drinking of realgar wine, were regarded by the ancients as effective, in preventing disease or evil, while promoting health and well being.

对的对的,古人认为所有这些活动包括喝雄黄酒可以有效预防疾病并驱除邪恶,同时可以促进健康并且增添福祉。

O: Kenan, let’s wish the all the Students of SuperA and all the Chinese people a very happy Dragon Boat Festival. Enjoy time with family and friends.

柯南,让我们祝福所有SuperA的学生和全中国人民端午节快乐。希望您跟家人朋友们一起度过一个愉快的端午节时光。
