1.The Origin of Chinese New Year

The Chinese New Year is now popularly known as the Spring Festival because it starts from the Begining of Spring (the first of the twenty-four terms in coodination with the changes of Nature). Its origin is too old to be traced. Several explanations are hanging around. All agree, however, that the word Nian, which in modern Chinese solely means "year", was originally the name of a monster beast that started to prey on people the night before the beginning of a new year.

One legend goes that the beast Nian had a very big mouth that would swallow a great many people with one bite. People were very scared. One day, an old man came to their rescue, offering to subdue Nian. To Nian he said, "I hear say that you are very capable, but can you swallow the other beasts of prey on earth instead of people who are by no means of your worthy opponents?" So, it did swallow many of the beasts of prey on earth that also harrassed people and their domestic animals from time to time.

After that, the old man disappeared riding the beast Nian. He turned out to be an immortal god. Now that Nian is gone and other beasts of prey are also scared into forests, people begin to enjoy their peaceful life. Before the old man left, he had told people to put up red paper decorations on their windows and doors at each year's end to scare away Nian in case it sneaked back again, because red is the color the beast feared the most.

From then on, the tradition of observing the conquest of Nian is carried on from generation to generation. The term "Guo Nian", which may mean "Survive the Nian" becomes today "Celebrate the (New) Year" as the word "guo" in Chinese having both the meaning of "pass-over" and "observe". The custom of putting up red paper and firing fire-crackers to scare away Nian should it have a chance to run loose is still around. However, people today have long forgotten why they are doing all this, except that they feel the color and the sound add to the excitement of the celebration.

2. Chinese New Year

Its origin is ancient, but many believe the word Nian, which means "year", was the name of a beast that preyed on people on the eve of a new year.

In one legend, the beast, Nian, had the power to swallow up all the people in a village in one big bite. Village people were very scared of Nian.

One day, an old man came to the villagers' rescue, offering to subdue Nian. The old man asked Nian, "I know you can swallow people, but can you swallow other beasts of prey instead of people who are by no means your worthy opponents?"

Nian accepted the old man's challenge and swallowed the beasts that had harassed the villagers and their farm animals for years.

At the end of the legend, the old man disappeared riding off on Nian. In this legend, the old man turned out to be an immortal god.

In the end, Nian is gone and the other beasts of prey are scared into hiding in the forests. The villagers can once again enjoy their peaceful life.

The legend goes on to say before the old man left, he told the villagers to put red paper decorations on their windows and doors at each year's end in order to keep Nian away. It is believed Nian is afraid of the color red.

The tradition of observing the conquest of Nian is carried on from generation to generation. The term "Guo Nian", which means "Survive the Nian" became "Celebrate the Year" and the word "guo" in Chinese means both "pass over" and "observe".

The custom of putting up red paper and lighting firecrackers to scare away Nian continues today.

由来二 : 冬去春来

Origin

China's traditional festivals have evolved through the centuries from past major events. For instance, long ago when people had a bountiful harvest, they gathered and celebrated their good fortune with gala performances. When natural disasters struck, they offered sacrifices to the gods and their ancestors, hoping for a blessing. The change of the seasons, flowers in spring, and the bright moon in autumn could all arouse their longing for a more beautiful life. Thus, creative activities were held to signify these events, Gradually these activities developed into festivals.

The most important festival in China is the Spring Festival. It is said that the Spring Festival evolved from an activity known as the Winter Sacrifice. It was a custom practiced by the people of primitive society.

As the cold winter began to recede and the warm spring was about to begin, the people of an entire clan gathered together. They brought out their bounty from hunting, fishing and the field. They thanked the gods for the blessings of nature, including the mountains, rivers, the sun ,moon and stars, They thanked their ancestors, then they shared and enjoyed the sumptuous bounty of the land, sea, air and fields as they ate, danced and sang heartily.

In the beginning, their activity had no fixed date. But usually it was held at the end of each winter. Gradually, through the years, it was celebrated at the end of the old year or the beginning of the new. With the changes and disintegration of primitive society, the form and content of the Winter Sacrifice also changed. Ultimately, it became a festival to bid farewell to the old year and welcome in the new year. So it came to be called the Spring Festival.

春节的来历英文版100字

Of all the traditional Chinese festivals, the new Year was perhaps

the most elaborate, colorful, and important.

This was a time for the

Chinese to congratulate each other and themselves on having passed

through another year, a time to finish out the old, and to welcome in

the new year.

Common expressions heard at this time are: GUONIAN to have

made it through the old year, and BAINIAN to congratulate the new year.

众多中国传统节日中,春节或许是最隆重盛大,富有色彩,最重要的节日了。这是一个中国人共同欢度,庆祝过去的一年,辞旧迎新的节日。

春节里常听到的话是:过年,意思是辞去过去的一年;拜年,意思是庆祝新的一年。

but many believe the word Nian, which means "year", was the name of a beast that preyed on people on the eve of a new year.

然而大家大都相信“年”这个词,是一种怪兽的名字,它在每年的除夕夜里出来捕食人。

In one legend, the beast, Nian, had the power to swallow up all the

people in a village in one big bite. Village people were very scared of

Nian.

One day, an old man came to the villagers' rescue, offering to

subdue Nian. The old man asked Nian, "I know you can swallow people, but

can you swallow other beasts of prey instead of people who are by no

means your worthy opponents?"

Nian accepted the old man's challenge and

swallowed the beasts that had harassed the villagers and their farm

animals for years. At the end of the legend, the old man disappeared

riding off on Nian.

In this legend, the old man turned out to be an

immortal god. In the end, Nian is gone and the other beasts of prey are

scared into hiding in the forests. The villagers can once again enjoy

their peaceful life.

传说中,“年”这个怪兽,有能力一口吞掉一个村庄的人。人们都很害怕“年”。

一天,一位老人帮村民们征服了“年”。他对“年”说:“我听说你很有能耐,但你能否把地球上其它的野兽都吃掉,而不是这些根本不是你对手的人类呢?”

“年”接受了老人的挑战,若干年里吃掉了好多害人和捕食农场动物的野兽。传说的结尾,老人骑着怪兽“年”消失了。原来传说中的这个老人是一位神仙。

最后,怪兽“年”被赶走了,其他捕食的野兽也都吓得躲进了森林。村民们又过上了平静的日子。

From then on,the tradition of observing the conquest of Nian is

carried on from generation to generation.

The term "Guo Nian", which

means "Survive the Nian" became "Celebrate the Year" and the word "guo"

in Chinese means both "pass over" and "observe".

从那以后,庆祝征服“年”的传统就一代一代传下来了。“过年”(征服怪兽“年”,得以生存)现在演变成“庆祝新年”。

“过”这个词在中文里面既包含“逾越,度过”又包含“庆祝”的意思。
