  一年一度的光棍节的即将到来,光棍节是一种流传于年轻人的娱乐性节日,以庆祝自己仍是单身一族为骄傲("光棍"的意思便是"单身")。11月11日,光棍节,源于这一天日期里有四个阿拉伯数字"1"形似四根光滑的棍子。
  而光棍在中文有单身的意思,所以光棍节是单身一族的一个另类节日,这个日子便被定为"光棍节"(One's Day)。光棍节产生于校园,并通过网络等媒介传播,逐渐形成了一种光棍节的文化。如今越来越多的人选在光棍节结婚,于此同时,也是各大商家以脱光为由打折促销的时期。
光棍节起源及相关英语翻译词汇

     光棍节英语翻译词汇有哪些呢?


  最简单的说法是single.

  虽然“光棍”一词非常形象且喜感满满,但其实说到底就是“单身”嘛。因此平时我们用single一词足以表示“光棍”了。比如说:
  Dan was a single guy living at home with his father and working in the family business.
  丹是个光棍,在家与父亲同住,并在自家的事业工作。
  此外,bachelor这个词也可以专门表示“光棍”。
  He is a bachelor, once he is fed, no one is hungry in his family.
  他是光棍儿一条,一人吃饱全家不饿。
  我们知道,bachelor还可以表示“获学士学位的人”。
  那么,为什么这个词既是“光棍”又是“学士”的意思呢?有种说法是以前的学校都是男女分校,也就是我们常说的unisexual school, 导致学士都是光棍啦!不过究竟是不是这个原因就无从考证啦。
  几天后即将要到来的“光棍节”,就是Single's Day了。
  Single's Day can be a day to spend with family.
  没错,单身节也可以和家人一起度过哦。
  关于光棍节 (Singles Day) 的起源有很多种说发,最玄乎 (unreliable, incredible) 的一种说法是此节起源于1111年11月11日那天(是不该叫做超级光棍节啊?),最被广泛认可的是起源于上世纪(听起来好久远的样子)90年代南京高校的校园趣味文化。不管光棍节到底是怎么来的,至少每年11月11日 还“光”着的童鞋有了属于自己的节日。
  两个人有中西方情人节 (Valentine's Day) 可过,单打独斗的童鞋也有节过了,虽然总感觉带着点悲催 (miserable) 的色彩。
  One's Day 和 Bachelor Day 也都可以表示“光棍节”。
  One's Day 好说,一个人的节日就是光棍节呗,不过童鞋们可不要把 Bachelor Day 理解为“学士节”,bachelor 除了学士,还有单身汉的意思。
  光棍节的标志性早餐是四根油条 (deep-fried dough stick) 和一个包子 (steamed stuffed bun),代表4个“1”和1个点(11.11)。
