你瞧,中国传统历法的新年不在公历的1月1日,而是在1月的后期或在2月,这意味着全世界的中国社区很快就要举行美妙的庆祝活动了,它们听起来是这样的:(锣鼓声)这些让人兴奋的声音叫“龙舞”,是节日活动的一部分。

中国新年的习俗已经持续3000多年了,而且它是中国日历中最重要的节日。它庆祝新生活的开始,是一个感恩去年展望来年的时刻。庆祝活动可以持续几个星期,不过主要发生在三天里,庆祝不仅在中国举行,而且在全世界的城市里都举行,也包括英国。

(01m04s) You see, in the Chinese calendar, New Year doesn’t fall on the first of January. It happens a bit late in January or in February, which means that Chinese communities all around the world will soon be having wonderful celebrations that sound like this: … Those exciting sounds are part of the festival called “The Dragon Dance.”

Chinese New Year has been celebrated for over three thousand years, and it’s the most important festival in the Chinese calendar. It celebrates the start of new life, a time to be thankful for the last year and to look forward to the year ahead. Celebrations can last a few weeks, but mainly take place over three days, and will be happening not just in China but in cities all around the world including here in the United Kingdom.

……这颗珍珠开始融化。慢慢地,它所在的地方,一个祖母绿般的清水湖泊在大地上扩展开来。

“这个奇妙的湖不会再遭受苦难了,”龙说,“这次我要以我知道的最好方式来保护它。”他把自己变成了一座山,耸立在湖水的一侧。

“朋友,我跟随你来了,”凤凰说着,她也把自己变成了一座山,保护在湖的另一边。

现在这个湖仍在中国的某个地方,这两座山也都在。这说明龙和凤凰把它保护得很好。

(11m29s) And the pearl begin to melt. Slowly in its place a lake of emerald-green-water spread across the land.

“Not in bad will ever happen to this magical lake,” said the dragon, “this time I will guard it in the only way I know how.” And he turned himself into a mountain on one side of the water.

“I follow you, my friend,” said the phoenix. And she, too, transformed herself into a mountain to guard the other side of the lake.

Some there in China the lake is still there and so are the mountains, which means the dragon and the phoenix are guarding it very well.

让我们用一点时间来思考一下。

今天我们听到的是准备迎接另一个特别的日子——中国新年。我们听到这是人们与家人和朋友共享欢乐的时间,是为新的一年做准备的时间。

在我们的故事里,我们听到了一个龙与凤凰之间友谊的伟大传说,他们保护了一个珍贵的宝贝从而使每个人都能享受它的美丽。

——《需要想一想的东西》/《中国新年》,BBC 2016/2/2

(12m37s) Let’s take a little time to think.

Today we’ve been hearing about getting ready for another special day – Chinese New Year. We’ve heard it’s a time when people celebrate with family and friends, and prepare for the year ahead.

In our story we heard a great tale of friendship between a dragon and a phoenix, who protected a precious jewel so that everyone could enjoy its beauty.
