圣诞节胜过平安夜

Christmas+Day+TRUMPS+克里斯tmas+Eve

     “他们的脸照得如同在圣诞节早晨的孩子们!”这句话已经被人不可数量说,因为说实话谁也不知道,圣诞节是一年中最快乐的一天吗?然而,通知说该说的不走,“他们的脸照得如同在圣诞前夜的孩子们!”显然,平安夜是比任何一年平均工作日更好。然而,12月25日的实际日期是除夜导致它的原因有很多要好的多。

     当你醒来在圣诞节前夕,所有你能做的就是找到的东西占用你的时间,直到它的时间来准备无论你的计划可能是夜晚。 12月24日的一天,人们仍可以跑来跑去包裹最后一分钟的礼物,烹饪他们的食物带给平安夜晚餐,或打扫房子所有的亲戚/客人说要去嗡嗡围绕他们的家。理所当然的,与你的家人/朋友和传统,如“圣诞节的前一天晚上”读书聚会的点点是很好玩的,但他们只持续约3小时。然而,这些平安夜有心计之前,你必须坐经过漫长的质量或其他教会活动。所有这些都是简单的例子很多几出,为什么人们在冬季有“倒计时圣诞节”,而不是“倒数平安夜。”

     Christmas day, though, seems to be flawless in it’s excitement and joyous celebrations. Starting off with waking up in the morning from what seems to be the longest night of restless sleep you’ve ever had, you can begin  all the wonderful Christmas festivities immediately without having to worry about getting anything else done. Presents that have been sitting under the tree staring at you can finally be opened, and delicious food in the cupboard that your mom has told you to “save for Christmas” can finally be eaten. Once those presents have been opened, you can spend a fraction of the day playing with all the new toys or gifts you got. If you want, you can even do all of this in your pajamas within the comfort of your own home. In cases like mine, you don’t need to put on an uncomfortable dress or shirt & tie to go to church on Christmas day but if you do, it’s not a very long service at all compared to the Christmas Eve mass. Lastly, but certainly not least, Christmas day is much more enjoyable than Christmas Eve largely due to the food. Not only can you eat all the leftovers from the previous night’s party, but you are continuously offered more and more food all Christmas long made 通过 so many relatives or friends—not to mention the greatly anticipated entrees at your Christmas dinner. Imagine all of these Christmas events being squished into 3 hours like it is the day before… not happening! Christmas festivities last so much l上ger than Christmas Eve does, and the fun of Christmas day seems never-ending. Clearly, Christmas day is loved much more than 克里斯tmas Eve!
