学霸(zha)们,正解看这里:



圣诞老人坐的雪橇,就是用驯鹿(Reindeer)来拉的,领头的圣诞驯鹿名字叫鲁道夫(Rudolph),有个红鼻子。

给圣诞老人拉雪橇的驯鹿有9只:鲁道夫(Rudolph)、猛冲者(Dasher)、跳舞者(Dancer)、欢腾(Prancer)、悍妇(Vixen)、大人物(Dunder)、闪电(Bliksem)、丘比特(Cupid)、(彗星)(Comet)。

先来看看领头驯鹿吧


Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer is a fictional male reindeer, usually depicted as a young calf who barely has antlers, with a glowing red nose. When depicted, he is the lead reindeer pulling Santa's sleigh on Christmas Eve. The luminosity of his nose is so great that it illuminates the team's path through inclement winter weather.




红鼻子驯鹿鲁道夫是一只虚构的雄鹿,通常被描绘成几乎没有鹿角、有发光的红鼻子的年轻雄鹿。在圣诞前夜,他领导了其他驯鹿拉着圣诞老人的雪橇。他鼻子的光是如此之亮,能够照亮路来通过恶劣的冬季天气。

其余的八只来自于一首诗


The 1823 poem by Clement C. Moore "A Visit from St. Nicholas"is largely credited for the contemporary Christmas lore that includes the eight flying reindeer and their names.

这是1823克莱门特·c·摩尔的诗“圣尼古拉斯的访问”(也称为“平安夜”或“圣诞前夜”)。普遍认为这是圣诞节的传说,包括八个会飞的驯鹿和他们的名字。



The relevant segment of the poem reads(这首诗的相关部分):

When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,

but a miniature sleigh, and eight tiny rein-deer,

with a little old driver, so lively and quick,

I knew in a moment it must be St. Nick.

More rapid than eagles his coursers they came,

And he whistled, and shouted, and call'd them by name:

"Now, Dasher! Now, Dancer! Now, Prancer, and Vixen!

"On, Comet! On, Cupid! On, Dunder and Blixem!

照片里,涅涅茨人过着艰难的生活。每年这里大约4万人的土著居民都要赶着他们的驯鹿群迁徙数百英里,穿过西伯利亚寒冷荒芜的苔原地带前往牧场,然后再原路返回。(Sebastião Salgado/摄)
