The Story of Chopsticks

筷子的故事

 

身体细长,兄弟成双,光爱吃菜,不爱喝汤。(打一日常用具)

同学们,这个谜语大家有没有猜过呢?大家知道说的是什么东西吗?其实,这说的就是我们平时经常会见到,吃饭总会用到的——筷子。筷子很平常,但却很有用,而且还是中国古代的一项重要发明呢。关于筷子的故事,你们了解多少呢?

 

China was the first country in the world to use chopsticks and has a history(历史) of more than(超过) 3,000 years eating meals with chopsticks. Chinese people usually use bamboo(竹子) or wood(木头) to make chopsticks. And it was common(普遍的) for rich people to use silver or gold chopsticks in the old days. 

 

There are many different legends(传说) of the origin(起源) of chopsticks. One is about a great man named Dayu.

 

There were big floods(洪水) in the times of Yao and Shun. So they sent Dayu to control(治理) the floods. Dayu was a kind and hardworking man. He decided to finish(完成) his work successfully(成功地). When doing his work, Dayu passed by his own house three times, but each time he did not go back in. He saved(节省) every minute to work on the floods.

 

One day, Dayu came to an island(岛) by boat feeling very hungry. He began to cook meat in a pot(锅). When the meat was done, it was too hot to eat it with his hands. But it would take him too much time for the meat to cool off. So he used two twigs(小树枝) to take the meat out and ate it. And from then on(从那时起), he had his meals in this way to save time. Other people began to eat their meals like Dayu did. So chopsticks came to be.

 

中国是世界上第一个使用筷子的国家,以筷进餐的历史有三千多年了。中国人通常用竹子或木材来制作筷子。古时候,有钱人使用银筷子或金筷子的情况很普遍。

关于筷子的由来有很多不同的传说。其中一个说法与一位了不起的人物——大禹有关。

相传尧舜时期,洪水泛滥。于是,他们派遣大禹去治理水患。大禹是一个善良又勤勉的人。他决意要成功地完成任务。在他忙碌期间,大禹三过家门而不入。他省下一分一秒治理洪水。

一天,大禹乘船来到一个岛上,感到非常饥饿。他就用一个锅煮起肉来。肉煮熟后,却因为太烫而无法用手拿起来吃。但是,如果等肉放凉又会耽误太多时间。于是,他用两根小树枝把肉夹出,吃了起来。从此,为了节省时间,他总是这样吃饭。其他人也开始效仿大禹的做法来吃饭。就这样,“筷子”出现了。
