year[00:7.00]and'moon cakes' are eaten at moon viewing parties.[00:8.00]The Mid-Autumn Festival is important[00:9.00]because it is a special occasion for family reunion.[00:10.00]Millions of people make the journey back home[00:11.00]to share the feeling of 'being togther' with all members of the family.[00:12.00]Traditional moon cakes are made with bean paste and salted egg yokes[00:13.00]but

of the first lunar month.[00:17.00]It marks the end of the Chinese New Year celebrations.[00:18.00]There are many stories about the origin of the Lantern Festival.[00:19.00]In one stories[00:20.00]lanterns were lit to celebrate Buddhism's pwer in driving away darkness.[00:21.00]In another story,the lanterns saved a town from destruction.[00:22.00]There was g god who wanted to burn dow the town.[00:23.00]He was tricked into believing the town was alrea burning[00:24.00]by the sight of thousands of lanterns.[00:25.00]In the past,[00:26.00]lanterns were usually lit by candles[00:27.00]and decorated with pictures of birds,animals,flowers,etc.[00:28.00]Nowadays,most lanterns are powered by electricity[00:29.00]and may in a variety of shapes and sizes.[00:30.00]In the northeast part of China,[00:31.00]there even ice-lanterns.[00:32.00]The special food for Lantern Festival is sweet dumplings,[00:33.00]which is made of glutinous rice and different sweet fillings.[00:34.00]The dumpling can either be boiled or fried[00:35.00]depending on the preference of the individuals.[00:36.00]Summer[00:37.00]The Dragon Boat Festival falls on the fifth day of the fifth month of the lunar calendar.[00:38.00]It is celebrated with customs that started more than 2000 years ago.[00:39.00]In the old days,dragon boat races were held only in Chinese communities.[00:40.00]However,in recent years,[00:41.00]people fron other cultures have also taken part in the races and enjoyed the fun.[00:42.00]The special food for the festival is called

beginning of the hottest season of the year.[00:47.00]Lesson 11 Weddings Weddings in Indonesia[00:48.00]What to do and what not to do[00:49.00]If a friend gets an invitation to a wedding,[00:50.00]you can go with him/her,[00:51.00]even of you don't receive an invitation yourself.[00:52.00]The times of the wedding ceremony[00:53.00]and the reception are both on the invitation.[00:54.00]However,you shouldn't go to the ceremony[00:55.00]because it is conducted only for close family.[00:56.00]If you really want to see it,you should asd first.[00:57.00]Everyone can attend the reception afterwards.[00:58.00]Nowadays,Indonesian women don't have to cover their heads,[00:59.00]but they usually wear traditional clothes.[1:00.00]There is a box at the entrance to the reception[1:1.00]and you have to put money into it![1:2.00]But don't worry,[1:3.00]you don't have to contribute a lot of money.[1:4.00]And remember-at most wedding receptions you can't drink alcohol.[1:5.00]Greek weddings[1:6.00]On the day of a Greek wedding ceremony,[1:7.00]the groom has to ask teh bride's father for his daughter's hand in marriage.[1:8.00]The groom's best man then goes with the couple to the

can last through the night.[1:15.00]There is a lot of eating,drinking and dancing,including the famous Greek circle dance,[1:16.00]where everyone joins in.[1:17.00]During the reception,[1:18.00]guests can smash dishes on the floor[1:19.00]and pin money the bride's wedding dress for good luck.[1:20.00]Lesson 12 Christmas[1:21.00]Memories of christmas[1:22.00]For me,christmas always began in the middle of the cold,windy month of November.[1:23.00]My sister,Alison,and I sat down in front of the fire[1:24.00]and wrote a letter to Father Christmas[1:25.00]telling him a bout all the presents we wanted.[1:26.00]We solemnly addressed our letters to 'Father Christmas,[1:27.00]the North Pole',before sending them up the chimney.[1:28.00]With December our excitement grew each day[1:29.00]as we opened the adve calendar,[1:30.00]Christmas cards arrived in the post,[1:31.00]the nativity play at our school,[1:32.00]Chirstmas lights in the streets,the town carol service.[1:33.00]And of course,[1:34.00]snow everywhere.Enough snow to make snowmen,[1:35.00]build iglood and to have glorious snowball foghts in the school playground.[1:36.00]On Christmas Eve,the whole family helped to decorate the house,[1:37.00]put up the Christmas tree and the decorations and blow up the balloons.[1:38.00]Then,in the afternoon,when Auntie Kathleen and my two cousins arrived,[1:39.00]everything was ready.[1:40.00]Before we went to bed,[1:41.00]we left some brandy and mince pies for Father Christmas[1:42.00]and then put our stockings at the end of our beds.[1:43.00]We tried to stay awake as long as possible to see Father Christmas[1:44.00]but the next thing we knew it was morning.[1:45.00]Christmas morning![1:46.00]At gte bottom ofthe bed was the stocking,[1:47.00]now full all kinds of small presents and sweets,[1:48.00]and at the bottom a chocolate sixpence and a tangerine.[1:49.00]Christmas morning was bright and sunny,[1:50.00]and after church,my cousin David and I went out into the garden[1:51.00]to play with our new presents.[1:52.00]Lunch was always late,but what a lunch![1:53.00]Roast turkey with all the vegetables followed by Christmas pudding[1:54.00]and brandy butter.[1:55.00]When we pulled the crankers,the dog barked,[1:56.00]we took out the plastic toys,laughed at the jokes,[1:57.00]put on the silly pap hats and laughed again.[1:58.00]After lunch,[1:59.00]the adults slept on the sofas in front the Queen's speech on television[2:00.00]while we all played card Then we had tea,[2:1.00]with a huge Christmas cake covered with snowmen and polar bears.[2:2.00]It didn't seem possible but we carried on eating.[2:3.00]By bedtime all of the children were exhausted.[2:4.00]As soon as we turned off the light,[2:5.00]we all fell into a deep,contented sleep. 来自:VOA英语网 文章地址: http://www.tingvoa.com/html/20180131/532912.html
