Australia Day    
  January 26th, 1778 was the day the first Fleet arrived in Sydney Harbor. Since then, Australians have celebrated Australia Day on January 26th.

  Well, let's go to an ordinary Australian community and see how the residents there celebrate Australia Day.

  By morning, the offshore parking lot has already filled with cars. People from different communities get together here to celebrate this wonderful day. Some families even set up a barbecue range and sell food and drinks. That's quite a good idea, as there are already some families that didn't bring quite enough.

  People are immersed in this heated festival and watch the swimming competition on the beach. Regardless of age and swimming skill, the fierce competition excites each contestant. Though participation of the activity is overall important, people still expect to have a winner. The interesting swimming race is just the start of the subsequent festival programs.

  Not all the families are here to celebrate; others celebrate at home with their family members. Marjie and Ron are like that. They will go to Sister Maureen's home to have a family party.

  So they will go to the supermarket first, grab some food and vegetables, but why does she get flowers? Oh, it is for Marjie's another sister, Kate, Kate has been awarded an Australia Day medal by the Australia government due to her excellent work.

  After Marjie's parents arrived, her mother began preparing the lunch with her sister Maureen while her Dad was chatting with Tom, Marjie's brother in-law, and they were all awaiting Kate's arrival. A delightful family gathering is being on its way along with delicious dishes and a few choice family performances.

  In the Seaside Park, the festival actions are continuing. The assembled families and those gathered around in the grassland enjoyed a wonderful program with a few special surprises.

  Grandpa , singing and playing alone is encircled by children who take up the initiative and join the singing. They contribute a little extra happiness to the program.

  Several "gold fish" swimming above the tents, are the main focus of the children who try to catch one but fail.

  Are the fish really in the air or is all swimming in the water?

  Sheep shearing is of particular interest to Australia's city dwellers. The fallen fleeces bring much merriment to the children. Children touch the sheared sheep and fell so smooth.

  This couple certainly had everyone's attention. This enchanting dance captured the interest of children and they follow its rhythm. Look at this cheerful little dancer, oh, be careful.

  All the programs are carefully prepared for children who regard the place as a perfect playground. A cartoon bear appeared but it was only a small part of the wonderful program. Their excitement was infectious.

  The celebration lasted till midnight. When the Marjies and their friend Noelene arrived, they were instantly immersed in the party mood.

  The party came to an end with the whirling of sparkles as these young people performed. The fire-sticks are swirled and twirled around, sending happiness to everybody.


澳洲国庆日

  1778年1月26日,第一个欧洲舰队抵达悉尼港口,从那以后,澳大利亚人就在1月26日这一天庆祝澳大利亚的国庆日。

  就让我们在这一天到澳大利亚的个普通社区去看看那里的居民是怎样度过国庆日的。

  上午,海岸边停车场已经停满了小汽车,他们从社区的各地汇集于此来庆祝这美好的一天。有的家庭很早就支起了炉灶,在这里卖烧烤、饮料,这的确是个很好的主意,因为有的家庭没有带来足够的食物。

  人们沉浸在欢乐的节日气氛中,一边欣赏着海滨游泳比赛。这里不分年龄大小和游泳技术高低,激烈的竞争鼓舞着每一位参赛选手,无论年龄大小和游泳技术的高低。参与比赛固然很重要,但人们还是希望能够看到冠军的产生,有趣的游泳比赛只是节日精彩节目的开始。

  并不是所有的居民都来此欢度国庆,有的家庭将召集所有成员欢聚一堂,Marjie and Ron就是如此。他们将去姐姐Maureen家参加家庭聚会。

  他们先到商店选购,买些食品和蔬菜。那买鲜花又为了什么呢?原来是送给另一个姐姐Kate的。Kate由于工作出色曾获得澳大利亚政府颁发的国庆勋章。

  Marjie的父母已经先到,她的母亲和姐姐Maureen已在准备午饭,父亲正和姐夫Tom 聊天,他们都在等Kate的到来。一个欢乐的家庭聚会开始了。美味家肴、精彩节目,应有尽有。

  在海滨公园,庆祝活动正在进行。人们以家庭为单位围坐的草地上,精彩的节目让人又惊又喜。

  自弹自唱的老人的歌声招来众多孩子一起伴唱,歌声里跳跃着孩子们的欢乐音符。

  几条”金鱼“游过帐蓬,它们成为孩子们的焦点,有心钓上一条,怎么不上钩?

  这到底是鱼在空中呢,还是我们在水里?

  剪羊毛对于澳大利亚城市里的人来说是很令人惊奇的事,剪下的羊毛带给孩子们无尽的欢乐,孩子们轻轻抚摸光秃秃的小羊,感到丝般的光滑。

  这对夫妇一出现便引起众人注意,他们魔幻般的舞姿抓住了孩子们的心,饶有兴趣地跟着跳。快看这可爱的小舞者,哦,要当心啊!

  看来每个节目都是为孩子们准备的,这里成了孩子们的乐园,一只卡通熊出现了。这仅仅是精彩节目的一小部分,孩子们的欢乐将带你进入一个童话世界。

  庆祝活动一直延续到晚上,Marjie 夫妇和她们的朋友Noelene也来了,立刻沉浸于其中。

  最后的压轴戏开始了,这是由年青人组成的耍火把节目。火把飞舞将欢乐带给了每一个人。
