  阴森的城堡,屋顶挂着下弦月,蝙蝠振翅划破黑夜。南瓜灯到处飘,巫婆骑扫把空中飞,僵尸吸血鬼街上到处飘荡……
  你在想什么呢?当然是恐怖惊悚又好玩的万圣节来啦!
  穿上最惊悚的服装,带上最恐怖的面具,我们的狂欢大派对就要开始了!
  万圣节大派对,人人都是Party Queen! Happy Halloween!

       

 

 

    The Halloween celebration comes from All Hallows Day or All Saints Day, the 1st of November. This was originally a pagan festival of the dead, but later became a holiday to honor Christian saints.

    The name Halloween comes from a contraction of All Hallows Eve (Evening), the day before All Hallows Day. On this night it was believed that the spirits of the dead would try to come back to life!

    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.

    Witches are popular Halloween characters that are thought to have magical powers. They usually wear pointed hats and fly around on broomsticks.

    Bad omens are also part of Halloween celebrations. A bad omen is something that is believed to bring bad luck, like black cats, spiders or bats.

    粗略了解一些万圣节小知识,我们来看两个小笑话轻松一下吧。

1、To scare them

    A mother bought her son a $100 Halloween costume to scare his friends.
    'Should I take the price tag off?' the boy asked.
    'Leave it on.' his mother replied. 'We'll scare your father,too.'


2、Trip to Walmart

    It was mid-October and I was waiting for my wife, Julie, at the checkout at Walmart supermarket in  Worcester, Massachusetts, USA, I noticed that someone had left behind their broom.

    When no one came to claim it, I went outside to search for a couple I remembered seeing at the cashier's desk. I spotted them getting into their truck and hurried over.

    'Excuse me,' I said to the young woman, 'but did you by any chance leave your broom inside?'
    'No,' she retorted quickly and with a smile, 'we came by truck.'

 

【参考译文】

       万圣节的庆祝活动来源于每年11月1日的All Hallows Day 或All Saints Day。它原先是异教徒们纪念死者的节日,但是逐渐演变成一个纪念基督圣者的节日。
 
       Halloween就是All Hallows Eve的缩写。而All Hallows Eve(夜晚)是All Hallows Day 的前一天。人们认为在当天晚上,亡者的灵魂会重新复活!
 
       Dressing up in costumes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,人们会穿戴一些特別的服裝,面具或者装饰来吓跑鬼魂。
 
       恶兆也是万圣节庆祝活动的一部分。人们相信恶兆会带给坏运气,黑猫、蜘蛛或者蝙蝠都算是恶兆。

 

       笑话没什么生词,就不翻译了。
