Lesson 9 A cold welcome
倒数计时活动的由来
倒数计时的活动是美国时代广场在1904年首
次举办的,1907年第一次举办水晶球跨年活动,
百年来风靡全球,已经成为纽约甚至全美最主要
年度活动之一。每年都有近百万人在午夜时分挤
上纽约时代广场,随着象征和平的水晶球在倒数
最后一分钟缓缓从天而降,现场气氛热烈到最高
点。尽管美国拉斯维加斯、迈阿密,甚至其他国
家都在仿效举办类似大型活动,但依旧不敌纽约
时代广场的超级魅力,每年全球有超过十亿人透
过电视实况转播观赏整个活动

Lesson 9 A cold welcome
TEXT
• On Wednesday evening, we went to the Town Hall. It
was the last day of the year and a large crowd of people
had gathered under the Town Hall clock. It would strike
twelve in twenty minutes' time. Fifteen minutes passed
and then, at five to twelve, the clock stopped. The big
minute hand did not move. We waited and waited, but
nothing happened. Suddenly someone shouted. 'It's two
minutes past twelve! The clock has stopped!' I looked at
my watch. It was true. The big clock refused to welcome
the New Year. At that moment, everybody began to laugh
and sing.
