“万圣节”竟然不是Halloween?

提到万圣节,我们都会说“Halloween”,但你知道么,说了这么多年,错了!小编很负责任地告诉大家,“万圣节”可不是“Halloween”:

首先我们要知道,万圣节是每年的11月1日,是西方的传统节日。

而10月31日正是这个节日最热闹的时刻,家家户户都会打扮一番参加狂欢派对。

维基百科上关于Halloween是这样标注的:

(a contraction of All Hallows' Evening), also known as Allhalloween, All Hallows' Eve, or All Saints' Eve, is a celebration observed in a number of countrieson 31 October, the eve of the Western Christian feast of All Hallows' Day.

来看,维基百科上关于Halloween是这样标注的:

从上面的解释中可以得知Halloween只是All Hallows' Day(万圣节)的eve(前夜)!

所以准确来说,Halloween应该译成“万圣夜”而非“万圣节”。因此,Halloween其实是指万圣节前夕,也就是10月31号晚。

(原来万圣节和圣诞节一样,都有“前夜”,就像我们的新年也有除夕之夜一样)

搞清楚了万圣夜和万圣节,该说一下Halloween的发音了。

很多人把它读成hello win,这是不对的,它的发音应该是:[ˌhæləˈwin]

hallow作动词的意思是“使...神圣/把...奉为神圣”,而All Hallows' Day中hallow加了s说明它也可以作名词,表示“圣徒”。

万圣节来诞生及来历

Halloween is a holiday celebrated on October 31. By tradition, Halloween begins after sunset. Long ago, people believed that witches gathered together and ghosts roamed the world on Halloween.

万圣节前夜是在10月31日庆祝的一个节日,根据传统,万圣节前夜的庆祝活动从太阳落山开始。在很久以前,人们相信在万圣节前夜女巫会聚集在一起,鬼魂在四处游荡。

Today, most people no longer believe in ghosts and witches. But these supernatural beings are still a part of Halloween.

现在,大多数人们不再相信有鬼魂和女巫的存在了,但是他们仍然把这些作为万圣节前夜的一部分。

万圣节如何打扮

Popular Halloween costumes include vampires (creatures that drink blood), ghosts (spirits of the dead) and were wolves (people that turn into wolves when the moon is full).

流行的万圣节服装包括vampires(吸血鬼),ghosts(死者的灵魂)和werewolves(每当月圆时就变成狼形的人)

Dressing up in costumes is one of the most popular Halloween customs, especially among children. According to tradition, people would dress up in costumes (wear special clothing, masks or disguises) to frighten the spirits away.

盛装是最受欢迎的万圣节风俗之一,尤其是受孩子们的欢迎。按照传统习俗,人们会盛装(穿戴一些特殊的服饰,面具或者装饰)来吓跑鬼魂。
