中国人过圣诞会做什么呢?

在圣诞节前几天,各个年龄段的中国学生通常会交换圣诞贺卡、穿上圣诞装束,提前沉浸在节日气氛里。作为一种独特的平安夜传统,许多人会互相赠送红苹果,并且圣诞期间的苹果被称为“平安果”,这是一种源自普通话平安夜的习俗,因为“苹果”的“苹”与“平安”的“平”发音是一样的,因此带有美好的祝愿,希望收到“平安果”的人来年可以平平安安、顺顺利利,这也是中文独特的浪漫。

What do Chinese people do for Christmas?

In the days before Christmas, Chinese students of all ages usually exchange Christmas cards, put on Christmas costumes, and immerse themselves in the festive spirit in advance.As a unique Christmas Eve tradition, many people give each other red apples, and the apples during the Christmas period are called "Píng An guǒ".This is a custom that originated from Mandarin Chinese Christmas Eve.Because the "Píng" in "Píng guǒ(apple)" is pronounced the same as the "Píng" in "Píng An(safe and sound)", so it carries good wishes.Chinese people hope that those who receive the "Píng An guǒ" will be safe and sound in the coming year, which is also a unique romance in Chinese.

朋友和家人也可能会利用节日促销的机会互相赠送小礼物,有些人甚至会购买人造圣诞树来装饰他们的客厅。餐厅也会准备具有圣诞特色的食物,这是所有人都无法拒绝的!

Friends and family members may also take advantage of holiday sales to give each other small gifts, and some even buy artificial Christmas trees to decorate their living rooms. The restaurant will also prepare food with Christmas specialties, which are irresistible to all!
