the word"chrismas" is derived from the word "christ mass" the celebration of the birth of jesus christ.
now we are gonging to talk about some traditional customs in the western countries.
people usually place a christmas tree,wich is decorated with colorful lights sweets and gifts,in their living rooms at christmas.in northern europe,the trees that remained green throughout the year were worshipped as symbols of eternal life.it is said that mistletoe,hung up as a christmas decoration,allow you to kiwhoever you like underneath it.a tele tells that balder the sun god,was killed by an arrow of mistletoe made by the god of evil ,loki.balder,however,was bought back to life,and the mistletoe was told never to harmbalder again.perhaps for this reason the mistletoe become a symbol of love and reconciliation.
good evening , ladies and gentlemen . i am joy and glad to give you a speech about stre, yes , just the topic you see on the screen.
psychologist tell us that streis a state of worry caused by the problem of living , such as too much work or study , heavy responsibilities , and quickened pace of life .
statistics show that strecomes from every detail in our life . financial problems , poor health , being laid off may be the strethat most adults now suffering . as students in the university , we are also under our special stre. while study , having to take various tests and submit a project against a deadline may put a great pressure on us . and the things make us felt stressed may be our parents’s greater expectations on us than we could reach . later , when we are likely to graduate , some other problems will also annoy us . i think we will worry a lot about our ability to compete in the job market and how we can best use what we’ve learned at college in our future job .
the chief problem we should face to is our atitude towards stre.people usually say they can not live in the sun except they escape from stre. it’s unwelcome ! yes , however , very necessary . just image a world where stredoes not exist and people lead their life in a very comfortable way . but is this kind of living condition as perfect as we hope ? without stre, they may feel very satisfied with the current life but lack of power to discover new things . too much satisfaction result in nothing except a countermarch of the society . no stre, no development . so a certain amount of streis good . it can stimulate us and increase our level of alertne.
and our answer to streis another vital problem . how to do with ourselves when stresuddenly break into our life ? to wave the white flag and admit our unability , to give up to our ideality , or worstly , just to suicide as to put an end to everything … of cause not . the principle is to tackle with stregentlely and harmoniously. we should try our best to release ourselves . such as to do some exercise , to linsen to traditional chinese music or classical music to ease our minds and to learn to view these changes of life as challenges .it’s no use crying over spilt milk . only to accept what has happened can solve the problem .
