About Christmas Day

关于圣诞节

Christmas celebrates the birth of Jesus Christ, who Christians believe is the son of God. His birth date is unknown because there is little information about his early life. There is disagreement among scholars on when Jesus was born. Christians celebrate Jesus’ birthday on December 25. Orthodox Christians celebrate Christmas Day on or near January 7.

圣诞节是用来庆祝耶稣基督的诞生,基督教徒认为基督是上帝的儿子。他的出生日期不详,因为关于他早年生活的信息很少。关于耶稣的具体生日学者之间也有一定分歧。基督徒在12月25日庆祝耶稣的生日,而东正教徒在1月7日或7日左右几天庆祝圣诞节。

The mistletoe is a commonly used Christmas decoration. By tradition, people who meet under a hanging mistletoe are obliged to kiss. Mistletoe has pagan associations. For example, the druids of Gaul regarded mistletoe growing on oak trees as sent from heaven.

槲寄生是一种常用的圣诞装饰。按照传统,在悬挂的槲寄生下相遇的人必须接吻。槲寄生与异教徒有一定的关联。例如,高卢的德鲁伊教团员认为槲寄生生长在橡树上,就像从天堂发出的一样。

Other common decorations associated with Christmas are holly and ivy – both are associated with Pagan festivals as it was customary to decorate with greenery for these festivals.

与圣诞节有关的其他常见装饰有冬青和常春藤-两者都与异教徒的节日有关,通常情况下配合绿叶来庆祝这些节日。
