圣诞老人的来历,你知道吗?


THE LEGEND OF ST. NICHOLAS

圣•尼古拉斯的传说

The legend of Santa Claus can be traced back hundreds of years to a monk named St. Nicholas. It is believed that Nicholas was born sometime around 280 A.D. in Patara, near Myra in modern-day Turkey.

圣诞老人的传说可以追溯到几百年前,有一个主教叫圣•尼古拉斯,据认为他在公元280年左右出生在潘特拉(Patara),在现在土耳其的米拉附近。

Much admired for his piety and kindness, St. Nicholas became the subject of many legends. It is said that he gave away all of his inherited wealth and traveled the countryside helping the poor and sick. His feast day is celebrated on the anniversary of his death, December 6. This was traditionally considered a lucky day to make large purchases or to get married.

由于虔诚和善良,他很受人爱戴,成为了很多传奇故事的主人公。据说他把继承的所有财产都分给了别人,到乡间各处救助穷人和病人。每年的12月6日是纪念他去世的日子,这一天在传统意义上被认为是买买买或结婚的吉日。
