    鉴于很多童鞋都要在圣诞考雅思(灰常苦逼,深表同情~),今天推荐一篇对于标准英式圣诞节准备工作的描述,考试如果说到节日或者跟考官客套的时候素材可用哦!!顺便送给大家一个非常不错的博客~老师昨晚才发现,今天就共享了,坚决不藏私是基本原则!哈哈哈~

    以下节选全部来自这个博客:http://user.qzone.qq.com/622000306/blog

    In the UK people have started preparing for Christmas 圣诞节, a winter festival 节日 celebrated on 25 December. It's a time for people to visit their families, share presents and eat lots of lovely food.
   The shops are full of people looking for the perfect present, the streets are adorned 挂满了 with colourful decorations 装饰品 and people's houses are decorated with wreaths on the doors and Christmas lights. Some people also make a special Advent wreath 耶稣将临的花环 which they will keep in their dining room, as a centrepiece 中心摆设。

   My friend Angela has sent me a picture of her family wreath, which is made using five candles, holly 冬青木 and ivy 常青藤 leaves, pine 松木 branches and red berries.

   Another tradition children enjoy in the lead up to 在…的前期 Christmas is the Advent calendar 圣诞节基督降临日历。This is a large piece of card with coloured pictures on it. They often have 24 little doors that children can open each day of Advent revealing either pictures or treats 小礼品; the 24th door is for Christmas Eve 平安夜?.
   Shopping for Christmas presents can be hard work but in recent years 近年来 special Christmas markets 圣诞市场 have become popular 热门 in the UK. There are lots of different market stalls 市场小摊 with special handmade gifts and food on sale. One popular thing to buy at a British Christmas market is homemade fudge 乳汁软糖, a soft sweet made from sugar, milk and butter.
   I went to a Christmas market last weekend in Ulverston, Cumbria, north-west England. Here are a couple of pictures I took there:

(庆老师点评:fudge这个东西真心不好吃!我原来的两个英国朋友特地从大老远给我带来吃的,口感不如太妃那么有嚼头,有些粉粉的感觉而且死甜~~)

  Can you see the chocolate inside? It was very tasty!

?
   It has a picture of Santa Claus 圣诞老人 (also called Father Christmas) surrounded by lots of small children. He is carrying a sack 大麻袋 of presents on his back and he has a finger to his lips, to say to the children that they should be quiet and not tell their parents that they've seen him! The tradition is that Santa Claus comes at night and children are supposed to be asleep and then when they awake they find lots of presents at the foot of 在(床)脚下 their beds.

   This Advent calendar has 24 little doors with a chocolate behind each one. The doors are numbered 1-24 for each day from the first day of Advent 耶稣降临节 (1 December in the UK) to Christmas Eve 平安夜 (24 December in the UK). Children in the UK love opening the doors of the calendar each day. Sometimes they find a little picture inside, sometimes a chocolate and sometimes a sweet.
