Christmas in Lebanon In Lebanon, 35% of the population follow a form of Christianity called Maronite Catholic. 

在黎巴嫩,35%的人口是一个名为玛龙尼特基督教组织的成员。 

These Christians build manger scenes in their homes called a Nativity Crib. The crib is more popular than a Christmas Tree. 

这些基督徒会在他们家里建造一个叫做基督降生储藏箱作为圣诞季的标志,这种储藏箱在黎巴嫩甚至比圣诞树更加受人欢迎。

 It's traditional for the scene to be based around a cave rather than a stable. 

按照惯例,这种储藏箱一般建造在洞穴里面,而不是牛棚里面。 

It's often decorated with sprouted seeds such as chickpeas, broad-beans, lentils, oats and wheat that have been grown on damp cotton wool in the weeks leading up to Christmas. 

储藏箱里一般会放上一些发芽了的种子,如鹰嘴豆、大豆、小扁豆、麦子、小麦等,这些种子在潮湿的棉花里面继续生长,过了几周差不多到圣诞节的时候,这些种子也成熟了。 

The crib scene then becomes a focus for the prayer of people in the house.

 这个储藏箱便成为了祈祷者们在家中的焦点。 

Other common Catholic traditions such as going to a midnight mass service are also celebrated in Lebanon. 

在黎巴嫩,其他传统的天主教徒也会在圣诞节的时候进行午夜弥撒进行庆祝。 

In the capital city, Beirut, big and glamourous Christmas parties are held in major hotels and lots of people like going to them, even if they're not Christian. 

在黎巴嫩的首都贝鲁特,许多大型酒店将会举行隆重盛大的圣诞派对,很多人即使不是基督徒,他们也会去参加这些派对。 

Western-style commercial displays of poinsettias, Christmas lights, holly and community Christmas trees are also becoming more popular, although some people don't like as they think they are too commercial. 

有着西方风格的商业展览,展览上有猩猩木、圣诞灯、冬青树和社区圣诞树。机关有些人觉得这些展览过于商业化不是很好,但不可否认这些都变得越来越流行和受欢迎。

 When people visit each other houses over the Christmas period, sugared almonds are often eaten with strong cups of coffee. 

当人们在圣诞节的时候拜访别人家时,经常用大杯的咖啡和裹了糖的杏仁来招待访客。

 In Lebanon most people speak Arabic, so Happy/Merry Christmas is Eid Milad Majid (عيد ميلاد مجيد) which means 'Glorious Birth Feast' or you could say Kul 'am wa enta bi-khair which means 'may every year find you in good health'. French is also spoken so you could wish people Happy/Merry Christmas in lots more languages. 

在黎巴嫩很多人说阿拉伯语,所以“圣诞节快乐”也被说成Eid Milad Majid (عيد ميلاد مجيد),这句话的含义是祝你年年健康。也可以用法语说Joyeux Noël!“圣诞节快乐”在黎巴嫩有很多语言可以表达。

 In Lebanon, Santa Claus/Father Christmas is known as Baba Noël. 

圣诞老人在黎巴嫩被叫做Baba Noël(圣诞粑粑)。
