萬圣節南瓜燈的故事

作者: admin來源: 網絡文章 時間: 2016-10-11

One story about Jack, an Irishman, who was not allowed into Heaven because he was stingy with his money. So he was sent to hell. But down there he played tricks on the Devil (Satan), so he was kicked out of Hell and made to walk the earth forever carrying a lantern.

關于萬圣節有這樣一個故事。是說有一個叫杰克的愛爾蘭人,因為他對錢特別的吝嗇,就不允許他進入天堂,而被打入地獄。但是在那里他老是捉弄魔鬼撒旦,所以被踢出地獄,罰他提著燈籠永遠在人世里行走。

Well, Irish children made Jack's lanterns on October 31st from a large potato or turnip, hollowed out with the sides having holes and lit by little candles inside. And Irish children would carry them as they went from house to house begging for food for the village Halloween festival that honored the Druid god Muck Olla. The Irish name for these lanterns was Jack with the lantern or Jack of the lantern, abbreviated asJack-o'-lantern and now spelled jack-o-lantern.

在十月三十一日愛爾蘭的孩子們用土豆和蘿卜制作“杰克的燈籠”,他們把中間挖掉、表面上打洞并在里邊點上蠟燭。為村里慶祝督伊德神的萬圣節,孩子們提著這種燈籠挨家挨戶乞討食物。這種燈籠的愛爾蘭名字是“拿燈籠的杰克”或者“杰克的燈籠”,縮寫為Jack-o'-lantern 。

The traditional Halloween you can read about in most books was just children's fun night. Halloween celebrations would start in October in every elementary school.

現在你在大多數書里讀到的萬圣節只是孩子們開心的夜晚。在小學校里,萬圣節是每年十月份開始慶祝的。孩子們會制作萬圣節的裝飾品:各種各樣桔紅色的南瓜燈。
