今年的11月11号是个非常不寻常的日子,因为在世界上不同的地方,今年的11月11号是非常不同的节日,所以它是非同寻常的一天。

 

November 11th this year is quite an unusual day, because November 11th this year is quite a different festival in different parts of the world, so it must be an extraordinary day.

 

一.最浪漫的节日

2019.11.11正好是泰历的十二月十五日,是泰国的“水灯节”(Loy Kra Thong)。


I. The Most Romantic Festival

2019.11.11 is exactly the December 15th of the Thai calendar, which is "Loy Kra Thong" in Thailand.


“水灯节”可以说是泰国最欢乐、最浪漫的传统节日了,在水灯节的夜晚,在水面上人们会点燃各种水灯,到处可以看到闪亮的烛光,到处可以听到美丽的“放水灯”的歌声。2019.11.11将是一个无比浪漫的水灯节之夜。


"Loy Kra Thong" can be said to be the most joyful and romantic traditional festival in Thailand. On the nights of "Loy Kra Thong", people will ignite various water lamps on the surface of the water. You can see shining candles everywhere, and you can hear beautiful songs of "Loy Kra Thong" everywhere. 2019.11.11 will be an exclusively romantic night of "Loy Kra Thong".

 

二.最有历史意义的节日

2019.11.11是第一次世界大战结束纪念日。

 


II. The Most Historic Day

2019.11.11 is the anniversary of the end of the First World War.


1918年11月11日在法国的雷东德火车站,德国与协约国联军签署《贡比涅森林停战协定》,宣布德国投降,从而宣告德、奥、土、保同盟国集团的彻底战败,第一次世界大战至此结束。


On November 11, 1918, at the Reddot train station in France, Germany and the Allied Coalition signed the "Gongbine Forest Armistice Agreement", announcing Germany's surrender, thus proclaiming the complete defeat of the allied groups of German Empire, Austro-Hungarian Empire, Ottoman Turkish Empire and Bulgaria. And the World War came to an end.


三.最重要的节日

2019.11.11是波兰的国家独立日(国庆节),波兰语为“Narodowe Święto Niepodległości”。

 


III. The Most Important Day

 

2019.11.11 is Poland's National Independence Day (National Day), "Narodowe Święto Niepodległości" in Polish language.

 

我们把时钟重新拨回到1918年11月11日。在1918年11月11日即第一次世界大战结束的那一天,在约瑟夫·毕苏斯基(Józef Pilsudski)将军的指挥下,波兰也获得了独立。这是波兰经历了123年的被普鲁士、奥地利和俄罗斯的分割后重新出现在世界上。因此每年的11月11日波兰独立日正是为了纪念波兰国家的重新独立和重建。

 


Let’s trace back the time to November 11th, 1918. On 11 November 1918, the day that World War I ended, under the command of General Józef Pilsudski, Poland gained independence. After 123 years prior to 1918 partitioned under the rule of Prussia, Austria, and Russia, Poland was granted its independence. Therefore, each year November 11th of the Polish Independence Day is to commemorate the re-independence and re-establishment of the state of Poland.

 

值得一提的是,当时应前苏联斯大林的要求,作为公共节日的波兰独立日在1939年至1989年期间曾被取消。

 

It is worth mentioning that at the request of Stalin, the former Soviet Union, the Polish Independence Day as a public holiday was abolished between 1939 and 1989.

    


 

四.最悲哀的节日

11.11是第一次世界大战结束的日子,这一天也成为参加过两次世界大战的几个国家纪念战争的节日,悼念在战争中阵亡的将士。

 


IV. The saddest holiday

11.11 marked the end of the First World War. It also became a memorial festival for wars in several countries that participated in the two world wars, mourning the soldiers who died in the wars.

 

在美国,这一天叫做退伍军人节或老兵节

在英国、加拿大和澳大利亚称为国殇纪念日

在法国、新西兰及英联邦国家称为停战纪念日

在比利时称为第一次世界大战停战纪念日(Armistice)

在日本称为国民哀悼日

 

In the United States, this day is called the Veterans Day

in the United Kingdom, Canada and Australia, it is called the National Remembrance Day

In France, New Zealand and Commonwealth countries, it is called the Armistice Day

In Belgium, it is known as Armistice of the World War I

In Japan, it is known as the National Day of Mourning

 

五.最传统节日

农历十月十五是中国的民间传统节日“下元节”,亦称“下元日”、“下元”。今年的农历十月十五正是阳历(公历)的11月11日。

 


V. The Most Traditional Festival

The 15th day of the lunar calendar is the Chinese folk traditional festival "Xia Yuan Festival", also known as "the Lower Yuan Day". This year's lunar calendar October 15 is November 11th of the Gregorian calendar.

 

下元节是地地道道的道教节日。不过,由于道教在中国的日衰,下元节也逐渐被人们所遗忘,成为最传统也是最难复兴的古老的节日。

 

The Xia Yuan Festival is an authentic Taoist festival. However, due to the decline of Taoism in China, Xia Yuan Festival has gradually been forgotten by people, becoming an ancient festival which is the most traditional but also most difficult to revive.

 

六.最娱乐的节日

11.11在中国也叫做双十一。因为11.11像是四个木棍,就像是单身汉(光棍)一样,所以在中国的校园里便产生了这个娱乐性的节日,称为”光棍节“。不过,在 11.11年轻人虽然很兴奋也为自己是单身一族而骄傲,但在心里他们还是希望下一年他们不再庆祝这个节日,因为他们还是希望尽快”脱单“,成立自己的家庭。

 


VI. Most Entertaining Festival

11.11 is also called Double Eleven in China. Because 11.11 is like four wooden sticks, just like bachelors (single bachelors), this entertaining festival is called "Single Day" on the Chinese campus. However, on 11.11 young people are very excited and proud of being single, but in their minds they still hope that they will no longer celebrate this festivalthe next year, because they still hope to "dismiss from being sigle" as soon as possible and own their own families.

 

七.最疯狂的节日

11.11在中国也叫做”剁手节“,从这个节日的名称就可以想象这个节日是多么地疯狂。

 


VII. The Craziest Festival

11.11 is also called "hands-on (hands-chopping) festival" in China. By the name of this festival, you can imagine how crazy this festival is.

 

由于11.11是中国单身青年的娱乐节日,他们会在这个节日疯狂地买、买、买,还有商家的惊人的打折促销,所以引发了全民的购物狂热,成为购物的狂欢节。由于这种购物狂热是在网上进行(例如在阿里巴巴、淘宝、京东、天猫Tmall等网站),所以很快也漫延到世界各地,席卷全球。

 

Since 11.11 is an entertainment festival for the single young in China, and they will buy, buy, and buy on the day, and with sellers’ amazing sales promotions at this festival, a shopping craze for all the people of the country is triggered and become a carnival for shopping. Because this kind of shopping craze is carried out online (for example, on Alibaba, Taobao, Jingdong, Tmall, etc.), it has spread globally to all over the world.

 

可是,这个购物狂欢节之后,人们发现他们的消费严重超支,非常后悔,恨不得把自己的手剁掉,这样就不会疯狂购买了。于是这个购物狂欢节有有了一个新的名字”剁手节“。

 

However, after this shopping carnival, people find that their consumption was seriously overrun, and they regret it, so much so that they even wish to get rid of their hands, thus they would not be so crazy to buy. Thus this shopping carnival has a new name "hands-on festival".
