**NZ Impression-父親節

紐西蘭的父親節和台灣的日期完全的不同,台灣是因為發音的諧音,父親節是在八月八號,而在這邊日期要和其他的英文字有諧音實在是太不容易了~這邊的父親節是九月的第一個禮拜天,今年剛好是九月七號,不過神奇的是,我問我Homestay的爸媽,他們說這是美國來的節日,所以基本上他們並不太清楚是什麼時候,所以當我問母親節是幾時的時候,他們想了又想,只說好像在三月還是五月,不過並不確定~

後來問他們的兒子,他其實很不太確定,不過他說當母親節快到的時候,電視就會有廣告,一看到廣告他們就知道母親節到了~:P不過他的印象應該是五月的第二個星期天,所以是和我們一樣的~

(Father's Day)

Father's Day in the New Zealand is totally difference from Taiwan. Here, Father's Day is the first Sunday of September.( This year it's the 7th of September.) In Taiwan, Father's Day is the 8th of August. We chose this day because the pronunciation of the 8th of August in Chinese is similar to the pronunciation of "daddy" in Chinese.

When I ask my homestay parents," Why did they choose this day to be Father's Day?", they couldn't answer. They said this was from American culture, they had no idea about this. They couldn't even remember which day was Mother's Day!!
