2020-10-01 16:06:00来源:网络

  以下是新东方在线英语学习网为大家整理的有关中秋节的神话故事:嫦娥(中英双语)。中秋佳节来临之际,希望以下内容能在这个温馨的节日里给你带去一抹不一样的文化色彩。

  The August Moon Festival or Mid-Autumn Festival (Chinese characters above) is one of the traditional Chinese holidays. It is held on the 15th day of the 8th lunar month. Chinese legends say that the moon is at its brightest and roundest on this day. Based on the Gregorian calendar, this year's August Moon Festival will be held on September 12.

  中秋节是中国人的传统节日之一,每年农历8月15日庆祝。传说月亮在这一天最大最圆。根据推算,今年公历9月12日为中秋节。

  The August Moon Festival is often called the Women's Festival. The moon (Chinese character on right) symbolizes elegance and beauty. While Westerners worship the sun (yang or male) for its power, people in the Far East admire the moon. The moon is the 'yin' or female principle and it is a trusted friend. Chinese parents often name their daughters after the moon, in hope that they will be as lovely as the moon.

  中秋节也被称为女人的节日,月(汉字部首)象征着优雅与美丽。而西方人则崇尚太阳(阳刚或男性)的力量,东亚地区的人们则崇尚月亮。月亮代表“阴”或女性,并且被看做是可靠的朋友。中国的父母总喜欢以“月”为女儿取名,为的是希望她们像月亮一样可爱。

  The Moon FairyLady - 'Chang Er'

  月亮仙子——嫦娥

  In fact, many ancient August Moon folktales are about a moon maiden. On the 15th night of the 8th lunar moon, little children on earth can see a lady on the moon.

  实际上,古代很多关于八月月圆的故事都跟一位月亮仙子有关。在阴历8月15的晚上,小孩子都能看到月亮上有一位女子。

  The story about the lady took place around 2170 B.C. At that time, the earth had ten suns circling it, each taking its turn to illuminate to the earth. But one day all ten suns appeared together, scorching the earth with their heat. The earth was saved by a strong and tyrannical archer named Hou Yi. He succeeded in shooting down nine of the suns. One day, Hou Yi stole the elixir of life from a goddess. However, his beautiful wife Chang E drank the elixir of life in order to save the people from her husband's tyrannical rule. After drinking it, she found herself floating and flew all the way to the moon. Hou Yi loved his divinely beautiful wife so much, he refused to shoot down the moon.

  这个故事发生在公元前2170年左右,那个时候,天上有十个太阳,它们轮流照亮地上。但有一天,十个太阳一同出现,他们发出的热量烧焦了地上的作物。一位身强体壮、性格暴虐名叫后羿的弓箭手拯救了人间。他成功接连射落九个太阳。有一天,后羿偷了一位神仙的长生不老药。而他美丽的妻子嫦娥为了帮助人们脱离他暴虐的统治偷偷喝下了长生不老药。喝下药之后他发现自己飘浮起来并飞向了月亮。后裔十分爱他美若天仙的妻子,他不忍心将她从月亮上射落。

  People believed that the lady was a god who lived in the moon that made the moon shine. Girls who wanted to be a beauty and have a handsome husband should worship the moon. And on this magical occasion, children who make wishes to the Lady on the Moon will find their dreams come true.

  人们认为嫦娥是住在月亮上的仙子,所以月亮才会发光。女孩子如果想要变得漂亮并且有一位如意郎君都要供奉月亮。而中秋之时,孩子们都会向月亮仙子许愿祈求他们能够梦想成真。
