平常佳节年年有,又到端午赛龙舟。很浓郁的中国味的节日,很地道的西方语言表达,The Dragon Boat Festival, people munch on zongzi, drink realgar wine, and race dragon boats! 对老外来说,过个吃粽子赛龙舟的中国节远比看中国书里读到的精彩!

英语里的中国端午节

Dialogue 1
Jingjing: Hey, Xiao Gao! Here, have a zongzi.
Xiao Gao: A what?
Jingjing: A zongzi. It's a traditional Chinese food that is made of glutinous rice stuffed with different fillings and is wrapped in bamboo leaves.
Xiao Gao: Mmm. It's a little sticky, but it sure hits the spot. Thanks!
Jingjing: Pleasure. Didn't you know? Today is Duanwu Jie!
Xiao Gao: Duan what?
Jingjing: Duanwu jie! You know, people munch on zongzi, drink realgar wine, and race dragon boats!
Xiao Gao: Ohhh! You mean the Dragon Boat Festival?
Jingjing: Duh!
Xiao Gao: Cool! So that's why I don't have to go back to the saltmines until Thursday?
Jingjing: Right. Why else would your company take a vacation?
Xiao Gao: I dunno. I figured it was just our summer vacation.
Jingjing: So, do you know why we celebrate Duanwu Jie?
Xiao Gao: Duan what?
Jingjing: Duanwu Jie! You know, the Dragon Boat Festival. Come on! Get it right!
Xiao Gao: Oh, yeah. Hmm, I remember reading about it in school, but nothing comes to mind.
Jingjing: Fess up! You've never learned about this holiday before. I think you better hit the books. Today is an important holiday in China. The library is right around the corner. I'll talk to you after you do some studying.
Xiao Gao: Geez, okay! I'll go right now!
