Easter is a movable festival celebrated on a Sunday between March 22 and April 25. We don't know exactly how this festival came into being. Some believed that it honored Easter, the goddess of spring time and sunrise. Her name comes from the word“east”, where the sun rises. Every spring, northern European people celebrated the Festival of Easter to honor the awakening of new life in nature. Later, Christians(基督教)related the rising of the sun to the Resurrection of Christ(耶酥的复活)and to their own spiritual(精神的)rebirth.
On Easter, eggs are painted with bright colors to represent the sunlight of spring. They use these eggs to take part in Easter?egg rolling contests or give them to others as gifts.
The Easter bunny is another representative of this festival. The Easter bunny came for pre?Christian(公元前)times. The rabbit, a very fertile(多产的)animal, was a natural symbol

of new life. Nowadays, children enjoy eating candy bunnies and listening to the stories

C The annual Carnival in Brazil is a unique festival. It is also the most important ethnic celebration. It comes between the end of February and the beginning of March every year. Hundreds of thousands of tourists from overseas were attracted to join the feast of rejoicing, which involves flamboyant costumes, sexy Brazilian girls and passionate samba dance. The earliest Carnival dates back to 1641, when the colonial rulers implemented a decree (法令). According to it, people would be encouraged to parade, dance and drink to celebrate the birthday of the Portuguese King. More than three hundred years later, the Carnival has become the most important folk festival of Brazil. On February 24 of this year, the “King Momo” dressed in bright orange, took the gold key of the city from the mayor of Riode Janeiro, to signify the beginning of the Carnival. During the following five days, the “King”, who played a leading role in the Carnival, would throw out all daily routines, so that pople could indulge themselves. The “King Momo” this year was as 33?year?old architect. His name was Alex de Oliveira. The “King Momo” is also known as “the King of Carnival”. He is hand?picked by Rio residents. There was once a rule that required the “King” to weigh no less than 100 kg. Today, there is a rule that the “King”shouldn't be heavier than 130 kg. The main “course” of the Carnival is the samba dance. Months before the Carnival, some professional samba schools will set out to compose music, rehearse dances and deisgn costumes according to the current theme of the Carnival. 700, 000 tourists swarmed the coastal city of Rio de Janeiro for the Carnival. Whoever they are—poor or rich, celebrity or ordainary people—they are all just dancers, day and night. Happiness prevails, while complaints disappear, Countless romantic stories occur during the celebrations, brightening everyone's dull daily life. 巴西是世界公认的狂欢节之乡。巴西狂欢节被誉为“地球上最伟大的表演”。我们一起来领略 一番吧! 45.What's the purpose of the original Brazil Carnival?

D Columbus Day is a holiday celebrated in many countries in the Americas, commemorating the date of Christopher Columbus's arrival in the New World in 1492. It is celebrated on the 2nd Monday in October. The first recorded celebration of Columbus Day in the United States was held by the Tammany Society, also known as the Colombian Order, in New York on October 12, 1792, marking the 300th anniversary of Columbus's landing in the Bahamas. Many Italian?Americans observe Columbus Day as a celebration of their Italian?American heritage. Columbus Day was first celebrated by Italians in San Francisco in 1869. In 1937, at the request of the Knights of Columbus (a Catholic organization named for the voyager), President Franklin Delano Roosevelt named Columbus Day a holiday in the United States. Since 1971, the holiday has been commemorated in the U.S. on the second Monday in October, the same day as Thanksgiving in neighboring Canada. However, some people are against Columbus Day because they feel that some of his actions are not worthy of a holiday. Historically, Columbus was not the first to discover America, nor was he the first European to land at America. While he was certainly the first European to successfully import European traditions and culture to America, he may also have been the first to exploit and enslave the Indians that had migrated from Asia. In recent years, the holiday has been viewed as controversial (引起争议的话题) by some people who see it as a celebration of the beginning of a European conquest due to the slavery of the Indians.

49.Although Columbus Day has been celebrated for more than 100 years, it is ________. A.doubted and rejected by many people B.popular in many other countries besides America C.not an official holiday in the United States yet D.only popular among the Italian?Americans 50.According to the passage, there is no doubt that Christopher Columbus was the first European to ________. A.discover America B.land in America C.find and take the Indians as slaves D.successfully introduce European culture to America 51.What would be the best title for the passage? A.Popularity of Columbus Day, But Also Criticism B.History of Columbus Day C.Christopher Columbus and Columbus Day D.Traditions of Columbus Day
E A friend of mine named Paul received an expensive car from his brother as a Christmas present. On Christmas Eve when Paul came out of his office, a street urchin (顽童) was walking around the shining car. “Is this your car, Paul?” he asked. Paul answered, “Yes, my brother gave it to me for Christmas.” The boy was surprised. “You mean your brother gave it to you and it didn't cost you anything. Boy, I wish...”he hesitated (犹豫). Of course Paul knew what he was going to wish for. He was going to wish he had a brother like that. But what the boy said surprised Paul greatly. “I wish,” the boy went on, “that I could be a brother like that.” Paul looked at the boy in surprise, then he said again, “Would you like to take a ride in my car?” “Oh yes, I'd love that.” After a short ride, the boy turned and with his eyes shining, said, “Paul, would you mind driving in front of my house?” Paul smiled a little. He thought he knew what the boy wanted. He wanted to show his neighbors that he could ride home in a big car. But Paul was wrong again. “Will you stop where those two steps are?” the boy asked. He ran up to the steps. Then in a short while Paul heard him coming back, but he was not coming fast. He was carrying his little crippled (残疾的) brother. He sat him down on the step and pointed to the car.

“There he is, Buddy, just like I told you upstairs. His brother gave it to him for

Christmas and it didn't cost him a cent. And some day I'm going to give you one just like

it... Then you can see for yourself all the nice things in the Christmas window that I've

been trying to tell you about.”

The Tomato Festival in Spain The Tomato Festival in Spain is held on the last Wednesday of every August in Bunol, a town in Spain, which is famous for its produce. The origin of the festival is that, in the 1940s, a group of young people started a fight, throwing food at each other in the street. From then on, the festival has been celebrated. On the festival every year, thousands of people, including a number of tourists from other countries, gather in the square of the town Bunol and throw tons of ripe and juicy tomatoes at each other. They try to enjoy themselves, laughing and shouting, and soon everything is flooded by the red tomato sea. The event lasts about one hour and then the people go to the river to clean themselves.
