雅思口语Part1范文答案解析：New year 新年
How do you celebrate New year? 你如何庆祝新年？
I usually celebrate New year by having a great meal with my family or friends. You know, we have one day off on the first day of January. So, that’s a perfect opportunity for us to have a gathering and it’s always been nice to sit back and enjoy the great foods with them.
Do you still remember a new year that you celebrated? 你还记得你曾经庆祝过的一个新年吗？
Yes, I do. The most memorable new year that I celebrated was the last one when the pandemic started. You know, there was a strict lock-down. So, we couldn’t go out. This article is from Laokaoya website. But, that didn’t stop us from making it meaningful. We honored this day by making some palatable foods from scratch. It really made my day!
Do you have any ceremonies to celebrate the New Year in your country? 在你们国家，庆祝新年的时候有什么仪式吗？
Yes, there are. Actually, we have two kinds of New Year to celebrate, the Lunar New Year and the one that is on the first day of January. So, we set fireworks and have galas on both occasions. In addition to that, we also have a tradition of visiting friends and relatives during the lunar new year period as that’s the only time when people are taking a break together in a year.
Why do people think New Year is a beginning? 为什么人们觉得新年是一个开端？
Honestly, I have no idea. But, off the top of my head, the first day of the Calendar is itself a start for the year, right? Also, I assume people attach symbolic meaning to that day. You know, it would be a transition for people to do things like work or studies, reminding them that there is a fresh start no matter what has happened in the past.
