威尔士人的骄傲

我觉得,威尔士人 (Welsh) 有很深的民族情结。

今早上班,看到几个男老师,在西装外套上,刻意别上了一朵黄色水仙花。有个老师,还特地系上了韭葱绿的领带。

水仙花 (daffodils) 和韭葱 (leeks) 是威尔士的民族徽章。

今天 3 月 1 号,是威尔士的圣大卫日(St.David’s Day),纪念他们的守护圣人。

我认识好几个威尔士人,都有很深的地域、民族情结。

在英国,英格兰的 St George’s Day  (圣乔治日, 4 月 23 日),是没人当一回事的,也没放假。可是,威尔士的圣大卫日(St.David’s Day),是热烘烘的,威尔士还放一天假,真好。

  1. 原来韭葱的英文是leeks啊~。德国北部说成look;标准德语却不这么说。想必是有渊源的。
