St George의 생활영어 - Queen's Birthday

박정실 0 2,947 2010.05.28 17:23

Queen's Birthday Weekend

Rose: I heard through the grapevine that there are no classes on Monday because of Queen’s Birthday weekend. Is it really the Queen’s birthday
on Monday?
Rose: 내가 소문으로 들었는데 Queen’s Birthday라서 월요일날 수업이 없대.월욜일날이 진짜 여왕생일이야?

Adrian: Ha ha. No, it’s not. In fact different commonwealth countries celebrate Queen’s birthday on different days – even though we have the same Queen! In New Zealand it’s always on the first Monday of June, but in Australia it’s on the second Monday.
Adrian: 하하.그건 아니야.사실은 영연방국가들이 같은 여왕의 생일을 다 다른날 경축해.뉴질랜드에서는 항상 6월 첫째주 월요일이 Queen’s Birthday지만, 호주에서는 둘째주 월요일이야.

Rose: That’s weird. So, when is the Queen’s real birthday?
Rose: 그거 참 이상하네. 그래서 언제가 진짜 여왕생일인데?

Adrian: Her actual birthday is 21 April, but because that’s the middle of winter in England they moved her official birthday to summer, simply because the weather is better.
Adrian: 원래 여왕생일은 4월21일인데 영국에선 그때가 겨울이라서 공식적인 생일을 여름으로 옮겼어.이유는 간단해.여름날씨가 더 좋다는거야.

Rose: That’s crazy! Why does the weather even come into it?
Rose: 제정신이 아니군.날씨가 왜 여왕생일이랑 상관이 있는데?

Adrian: In the U.K they have a military parade on Queen’s Birthday, and a lot of people like to watch the parade pass by. If the weather was miserable, the parade would be a flop.
Adrian: 영국에서는 여왕생일때 열병식이있어.많은 사람들이 옆에서 그 퍼레이드를 보는걸 좋아해.만약 날씨가 안 좋다면 그 퍼레이드는 실패하게 되는거지.

Rose: I get it. But what about New Zealand? In the Southern Hemisphere the start of June is winter, not summer!
Rose: 아 알겠다.그럼 뉴질랜드에서는 뭘해? 천문 남반구에 위치해 있어서 6월이면 겨울이 시작하고 여름이 아니잖아!

Adrian: Well, most New Zealanders aren’t very strong monarchists. Queen’s Birthday in New Zealand is associated more with the start of the ski season than with royalty.
Adrian: 음,대부분의 뉴질랜드 사람들은 군주주의자들이 아니야. 뉴질랜드에서 Queen’s Birthday란 왕위보다는 스키시즌이 시작하는것에 더 연관이 있어.

Rose: So what do most kiwis get up to for Queen’s Birthday weekend?
Rose: 그럼 대부분의 키위들은 Queen’s Birthday주에 뭘해?

Adrian: Well, it’s a stat holiday so we all get the day off work. Because it’s a long weekend a lot of people like to get out of town for a few days, and maybe go on a road-trip.
Adrian: 글쎄,그날은 공휴일이라 다 휴가를가져.긴주말이 되기때문에 많은 사람들은 며칠동안 놀러가는것을 좋아해 아니면 멀리 여행을 가던지.

Rose: I’ve got an idea, we should go down to the mountain for Queen’s Birthday, are you in?
Rose: 나한테 좋은 생각이 있어.우리도 Queen’s Birthday때 Mt. Maunganui에 가는거야,같이갈래?
