The Legend of Chinese New Year
中國新年的傳說

A long, long time ago in China, there was a big, scary, nasty beast named "Nian," whose name means "year." He had razor-sharp teeth, giant claws, and a really mean growl. Most of the time he lived in the wilderness, but on the darkest night of the year, when the new moon was in the sky, he would sneak into the village and scare everyone inside, even the animals.
很久很久以前在中國,有一隻又大又嚇人又壞的怪獸叫「年」,他的名字是「一年」的意思。他有很銳利的牙齒、巨大的爪子,還有十分可怕的低吼聲。他大多時候住在荒野中,但在一年中最黑暗的夜裡,新月高掛空中之際,年獸就會溜進村莊嚇村裡的每個人,就連動物也不例外。

People dreaded the new moon for many, many years, until a wise man taught them the three things Nian was afraid of: loud noises, fire, and the color red. The next time Nian came, the villagers fought back. They hit their drums as loud as they could, lit every firecracker they had, and wore the color red from head to toe. Nian ran far away and never came back.
人們許多年來都懼怕新月,直到一位智者教他們年獸害怕的三件事物:巨大的噪音、火,以及紅色。年獸下一次來時,村民們反擊回去。他們使盡全力讓鼓聲大作、點燃他們擁有的每支鞭炮,並且從頭到腳都穿著大紅色。年獸逃得遠遠地,而且再也沒回來過。

After that, the people started celebrating the new moon instead of fearing it. That celebration became a 15-day festival of family, food, and good fortune called Chinese New Year.
在那之後,人們開始慶祝新月而非害怕新月。那慶典變成一個名為中國新年,關於家人、美食和福氣且為期十五天的節日。
