Christmas in New Zealand


In New Zealand, like its neighbour Australia, Christmas comes in the middle of the summer holidays.
如同邻国澳大利亚一样,在新西兰,圣诞节也正值暑假期间。

My relations that live in New Zealand tell me that there are lots of people out camping or at their Baches (holiday homes) for Christmas.
住在新西兰的亲戚告诉我,那边有很多人选择露营或在海滨小屋(专门用来度假的房子)欢庆圣诞。

Many towns have a Santa parade with decorated floats, bands and marching girls. This can be any time from mid November onwards and is really a commercial event but much enjoyed by all.
在许多小镇上都会举行圣诞游行,游行队伍中包括漂亮的彩车、乐队及游行少女。从11月中旬开始,游行队伍随时可见,此类游行多为商业活动,不过广大民众都乐在其中。

Many people have a Christmas Tree in their homes and decorate it like people in the USA or UK.
很多新西兰人家里都会放置圣诞树,像英美人一样把圣诞树装饰得美美的。

Many New Zealanders have a barbecue for Christmas lunch and this is becoming more popular. The food cooked on the barbecue is often ham slices or even venison or some other kind of exotic meat. Shrimps and other fish are also barbecued!
新西兰人大多以一顿烤肉当作圣诞午餐,并且这种烤肉午餐越来越流行,一般包括烤火腿片、鹿肉以及一些异国风味的肉类,有时也会烤些鱼虾之类的海鲜。

Desserts are also very popular! Many still have a hot fruit pudding with custard and ice cream but cold desserts are popular. These include pavlova and whipped cream, meringues, cold fruit salad, jelly and ice cream. Drinks will include a range of soft drinks. Those who like it often over do the alcoholic drinks too. Here's a recipe for pavlova.
甜品也是相当受欢迎的。很多人仍然喜欢热的水果蛋奶布丁配冰淇淋,不过冷甜品也相当受欢迎,包括奶油水果蛋白饼、蛋白酥皮卷、水果色拉、果冻和冰激凌等。诞生餐还包括各种各样的饮料,也有多种酒类让那些爱酒之人经常喝得醉醺醺的。

My relations have an English type Christmas meal in the middle of June (New Zealand's mid winter)! This meal will often be hot food such as roast chicken, roast lamb, cold ham, hot roast vegetables such as potatoes, pumpkin, sweet potato, and other root vegetables and also greens such as peas. Coleslaw is increasing in popularity. All with gravy!
我家亲戚会在六月中旬(新西兰隆冬之时)享用一次英式圣诞大餐。大餐基本都是热食,比如烤鸡、烤羔羊肉、冷火腿,还有诸如土豆、南瓜、山芋及其他根类蔬菜和诸如豌豆等绿叶菜做成的烤蔬菜。生菜色拉开始成为圣诞大餐的新宠。所有菜品都会配有肉汁。

They open their presents on Christmas day once the whole family is all together. This is usually before the Christmas lunch.
新西兰人在全家团聚之时——通常在圣诞午餐之前——打开各自的圣诞礼物。

In the Maori language Happy/Merry Christmas is 'Meri Kirihimete'. 

毛利语中圣诞快乐的写法是“Meri Kirihimete”。
