關於黑色星期五

Black Friday 黑色星期五

感恩節的隔日,感恩節是美國全國性節日,當天會放假,在加上黑色星期五,就成了連假四天。人們通常由此時開始聖誕節的大採購,由於這一天是商家在感恩節後開業的第一天,大多會有大額進帳。傳統上記帳,紅色表示虧損,黑色則為有盈利,所以把這個星期五叫黑色星期五,商店的員工則使用黑色星期五這一名字來自嘲,表示這一天會忙得要死。

關於感恩節

Thanksgiving 感恩節

人們在每年十一月的第四個禮拜四慶祝這一年一度的國定假日。在這個時節,人們對於所擁有的一切心懷感恩,並且與家人朋友齊聚一堂,吃大餐慶祝。
感恩節的由來要追溯到1620-1621年間,著名的“五月花”號船滿載不堪忍受英國國內宗教迫害的清教徒到達北美洲。1620年和1621年之交的冬天,他們遇到了困難,在饑寒交迫之中,冬天過去後,只有一半的移民倖存下來。印第安人幫助移民並教他們怎樣種植玉米、豆子和捕魚。隔年,移民們終于獲得了豐收,為了感謝印第安人的幫助,決定邀請他們一同慶祝節日。
火雞、蔓越莓醬南瓜派為傳統感恩節大餐中最常見的菜色。感恩節也意味著購物季節的到來,在黑色星期五期間(感恩節的次日),為了吸引消費者到店消費,幾乎所有商店都會推出特別的優惠促銷活動。人們甚至在商店營業前就大排長龍排隊,只為了買到物美價廉的商品。

感恩節英文短文練習

The origin of Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving Day, an annual national holiday, is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November. It is a time to show gratitude for good things you have in life. People celebrate this day with a lavish feast with their family and friends.
Thanksgiving Day can be traced back to 1620 -1621. The ship, Mayflower left England in the fall of 1620, bringing the group of English religious refugees known as the Pilgrims to North America. In the winter of 1620, the harvests had failed and half of the Pilgrims had starved to death. For the rest who survived, the Native Americans taught the Pilgrims how to grow corn, beans; catch fish, and collect seafood.
In the following winter of 1621, the Pilgrims invited the Native Americans to a celebration at the Plymouth Plantation after a successful harvest season.
Traditional Thanksgiving dishes include roasted turkey with stuffing, cranberry sauce and pumpkin pies are most common.Thanksgiving also kicks off the shopping season. During Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, almost all stores offer all kinds of special deals to attract consumers to their shops. To grab the bargain for their desired items, people wait in line even hours before the stores are open.
