Feifei
大家好,歡迎來到 BBC 英語教學的《道地英語》節目。我是馮菲菲。

Rob
And I’m Rob. And I am so excited! 

Feifei
Oh, yeah? Why’s that, Rob?

Rob
You know, Feifei. It’s that festive time of year – presents, parties, time with the family, snow… And, um, did I mention presents?

Feifei
Yes, you did. Presents 禮物,parties 派對,family time 家人團聚的時間,還有 snow 白雪。Yes, Rob. It’s Christmas time.

Rob
Oh, come on, Feifei – aren’t you excited? Imagine if we had lots of Christmases all at the same time!

Feifei
Err, no. Think of the cost of buying all those presents! 

Rob
Yeah, but hopefully you’d receive lots of presents, too! Anyway, do you know that for some people, all their Christmases can come all at once?  

Feifei
“All their Christmases can come all at once.” 這是什麼意思?

Rob
OK, well, they’re not really Christmases, but if someone has extreme good fortune, it’s like the feeling of having lots of Christmases all at the same time.

Feifei
啊!原來是這個意思。我們可以用 “to have all your Christmases come at once” 這個說法來形容一個人的運氣極佳,好運連連,就好比同時過好多個聖誕節一樣。

Rob
Let’s hear from some people who’ve had all their Christmases come at once. Lucky them!

Examples
Yay! I got a pay rise, and I’m off on holiday tomorrow. And I’ve won the lottery! It seems like all my Christmases have come at once!

The day I got married, I heard I’d passed my exams and got a promotion, so it felt like all my Christmases had come at once.

All my Christmases have come at once! My parents bought me a new car. I got a place at university and I’ve got a new girlfriend!

Feifei
這裡是 BBC 英語教學的《道地英語》節目。這集節目裡教給大家的說法是 “have all your Christmases come at once”。它可以用來形容一個人順風順水,福星高照,鴻運當頭。 Did you know, Rob, that I’ve had lots of good luck?

Rob
Oh! No, I didn’t. So, well, what’s happened?

Feifei
Well, I’ve been invited to a big swanky Christmas party tonight. I’m going skiing at the weekend and you’ve bought me an amazing Christmas present.

Rob
Have I? 

Feifei
Yes! In that box over there.

Rob
Oh, no, sorry. That’s not for you. Oh, dear. Looks like not all of your Christmases have arrived!

Feifei
Oh, well, you might as well have your present now.

Rob
OK, thanks. Oh! A book of English phrases. How useful!

Feifei
It will be. Happy Christmas, Rob!

Rob
Same to you, Feifei.
