Have a heartwarming holiday season! Dec 20, 2006

Hello, Wilman, Denyce, and all the wonderful translators

It suddenly became very cold last couple days. We also had power outage for a couple nights. Last weekend, I put up my all-made-in-China plastic tree and all the lights, it was like an annual ritual, everything looks as good as it can be. I also began to pick up the holiday spirit gradually as the holidays approaching.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your support and help to make this website to be the best work place for translators. Have a heartwarming Christmas, and healthy and prosperous New Year! By the way, when will be the Chinese Spring Festival next year?

With Best Wishes,

Kevin

祝大家节日愉快 Dec 21, 2006

并预祝各位新的一年身心健康、家庭幸福、工作顺利、万事如意!

其实我们这里从这个月初就已开始节日气氛,街上满是圣诞节装饰和各种彩灯,人们早就开始选购各种礼品,国家电视台为研究罕见病尤其是儿童病举办48小时的大型捐款活动,人们也开始更多地谈到如何解决无家可归者的住宿问题等等(主要是巴黎和一些大城市租房难,有工资收入的人也有可能因突然出现的工作或家庭变化在短期内找不到适当住所等,而有些房主因怕收不到房租,宁可不出租,因为法律规定即使不交房租,也不许在冬天把租房人赶出门),巴黎市政府为此还专门在市内布置了几百个帐篷,欢迎公民体验露宿街头的生活......

总之每年的十二月也是法国谈人文主义最多的一个月。

let 's accelerate the multi-cultural trendency overall the world Dec 21, 2006

Hello everyone,
nice to get your greeting here. I also wish you all merry Christmas and a happy new year.
Frankly speaking, Christmas day is not our tradional holiday. However, in the recent years we also get used to celebrate it, like the people in the West. But we celebrate it cheerfully, not quietly like in Europe, for example in Germany, the tradional Christain country. That means, we are making Christmas day Chinese, just like the world is making us international.
Is it not like the official new year, which was developed from the ancient Roman calendar, but is accepted by the whole world over time? You could not say, the two events are firmly different. If you trace back the history, you would find, both of them have a religious background. If we could together account the last 10 second on the Tiananmen Square in 2000, why could not we celebrate Christmas day.
The influnce from the West on China is amazingly. But the Chinese culture is also spreading overall the world now. Every year when the spring fest comes, when die chinese people celebrate their whole traditional holidays, the media wordwide also focus on us. The people, expect for Chinese, know about it, but not yet celebrate it with us together.
If we could not stop the multi-cultural trendency on the earth, why not to accelerate it. Accelerate it, so that the people all over the world celebrate spring festival with us together; accelerate it, so that the Chinese language become the international language; accelerate it, so that ...

Christmas probably means different things to different people. Here's one music video among many out there that I like.

Denyce, Thanks for letting me know. Here's the same clip in a much smaller format. The mood of the bigger frame is more engaging, but this'll have to suffice...

Merry Christmas to You and Stefanie.

Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas Dec 22, 2006

The first recorded version sung by Judy Garland in Meet Me In St. Louis (1944)
Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas,
Let your heart be light
Next year,
All our troubles will be out of sight
Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Make the yuletide gay
Next year all our troubles will be miles away
Once again as in olden days
Happy golden days of yore
Faithful friends who were near to us
Will be near to us once more
Someday soon we all will be together
If the fates allow.
Until then, we'll have to muddle through somehow
So have yourself a merry little Christmas now.

[edit] Alternate "brighter" version (Frank Sinatra version)
(Introduction)
Christmas future is far away
Christmas past is past
Christmas present is here today
Bringing joy that may last
Have yourself a merry little Christmas,
Let your heart be light
From now on,
our troubles will be out of sight
Have yourself a merry little Christmas,
Make the Yule-tide gay,
From now on,
our troubles will be miles away.
Here we are as in olden days,
Happy golden days of yore.
Faithful friends who are near to us
Gather near to us once more.
Through the years
We all will be together,
If the Fates allow
Hang a shining star upon the highest bough.
And have yourself A merry little Christmas now.

MARK, Dec 22, 2006

我没看链接内容,但是根据标题可以猜到内容,而且知道大陆有那么一批年轻的狭隘民族主义者,往往自认为是中华民族的精英。

开个玩笑:
使中国快速发展的出口可以称为:卖国
进口:崇洋
学英语:媚外
搞翻译:里通外国

你们是不是觉得我比那几位博士更有中华民族气概

其实,法国是非宗教国,在我们这里圣诞就是公休日,与中国的春节相近,圣诞是家人团聚的日子,除夕之夜则是朋友们相聚的好时光。一般不信基督教的家庭也会有圣诞树,一般是为了有个节日气氛和让孩子们高兴。当然对信基督教的人这个日子具有特殊含意,但是这并不影响我们不信教的或者信其它宗教的人欢度这个假日。

孩子大了,前两年她们班上搞圣诞假日装饰,我就积极鼓励她把圣诞树和圣诞装饰品拿到班上去。我妹春节来时,拉她一起去买棵植物放在以前放圣诞树的地方,调节室内环境。因为是冬天,没更多植物选择,我也不懂,就挑了棵大点儿的,出店后她告诉我那叫“发财树”或是“金钱树”之类的名字我现在已经记不清了,我问她为什么买前没告诉我,她说:“我要是告诉你,你肯定就不买了。”哪里话,要是棵摇钱树才好呢,可以大力支持边远地区儿童上学了

祝你节日快乐,如果你不反对这个节日的话

跟你的反应一样 Dec 22, 2006



几年前,我爱给报纸投稿。有一回,编辑很喜欢我翻译的两篇稿子,但最后却没有发表,因为里面有“圣诞节”内容!!我可不希望时间倒流!
