Some young people have become disillusioned with how commercialized Christmas has become.
如今,一些年轻人对过度商业化的圣诞节已经大失所望。

As a result, they try to break with established traditions. What do they do to get more out of Christmas?
于是,他们试图打破固有的传统习俗。下面就让我们一起来看看他们的圣诞都做了哪些有意思的事?

Ways of celebrating
庆祝方式

Some folk kill two birds with one stone: by booking a short holiday abroad they can escape miserable winter weather and the strained atmosphere of a family Christmas with the relatives.
一些人选择一举两得的做法:短期的出国度假。这样一来,不仅避开了冬季的糟糕气候,还摆脱了与家庭亲友共度圣诞的紧张气氛。

Ok, so flying to warm and exotic climes is great for people who live in cold winter climates.
所以说,对于那些与寒冬气候相伴的人们来说,飞往温暖的异国是个不错的选择。

But how do you celebrate Christmas when your year-round climate is warm, or even tropical?
而在那些全年气候温暖、甚至有些酷热的地区,人们又是怎样庆祝圣诞节的呢?

For instance, in California, where suntans and palm trees replace traditional Christmas images of snow and sleighs, there are some Christmas traditions which may seem unusual to those used to more traditional images.
例如,在美国加州,太阳浴和棕榈树取代了传统圣诞节白雪和雪橇的形象。对于那些已经习惯圣诞传统印象的人们来说,这里有些不同寻常的圣诞传统。

In Santa Cruz, California, Santa Claus arrives on a surfboard, wearing a red wetsuit. As long as he comes bearing presents, Surfing Santa would probably be welcome anywhere.
在加州的圣克鲁斯,圣诞老人身穿红色潜水服,脚踏冲浪板。只要带着礼物来,即使是冲浪的圣诞老人照样大受欢迎。

In Australia, many young people enjoy the warm weather with a beach barbecue and cold beer. In recent years, Bondi Beach has become a magnet for overseas visitors to gather and celebrate. It’s not uncommon for numbers to reach 40,000 on Christmas day.
在澳大利亚,许多年轻人喜欢在仲夏享受海滩烧烤和冰啤酒所带来的快乐。近几年,邦迪海滩成功吸引了大量海外游客前来举行聚会以及庆祝活动。在圣诞节当天,这里游客人数达到4万是很平常的事。

In cooler climes, many young people simply see Christmas as a time to escape their immediate families and celebrate with friends.
在较寒冷的地区,许多年轻人将圣诞节视为能够逃离至亲家人,和朋友欢聚的时刻。

Large amounts of alcohol are usually involved. Parents are not.
因为和朋友在一起会尽情畅饮,而父母却不会。
