Why isn't Tom doing something for Chinese New Year?

Conversation A

Jason: Are you doing anything for Chinese New Year, Dana?
Dana: No. But I am taking a short vacation. I'm going to visit a friend in New York.
Tom: Are you going by plane?
Dana: No. I'm taking the train. It's cheaper.
Jason: When do you leave?
Dana: I'm leaving late this afternoon.
Tom: When will you be back?
Dana: On Sunday night.
Tom: That is a short vacation!

Conversation B

Jason: Are you doing anything for Chinese New Year, Tom?
Tom: Not this year. Amy's not having a party. But that's OK because I have to work.
Dana: Will you get any hong bao, Jason?
Jason: Red envelopes? I don't think so.
Tom: What's a red envelope?
Dana: It's a small red envelope with cash inside. It's lucky money for the new year.
Tom: Lucky money? I need some for the new year!

Read it!

Jason: I'll open my package now. Here's a card from my mom.
Tom: What does it say?
Dana: That's none ofyourbusiness!
Jason: That's OK. You can read it. It's not too personal.

Dear Jason,

Happy Year of the Rabbit! Guess what? I am studying English now. So I am writing to you in English.

Enjoy these traditional treats. I cannot send you a red envelope. But maybe your aunt will give you one. We will miss you on Chinese New Year. We are going to your grandmother's house for Chinese New Year's Eve. Your grandmother is a very good cook! But you know that, of course! You love her dumplings. But I can't send any to you. I'm sorry.

Happy Chinese New Year!

Mom

为什么汤姆农历新年时没有要做什么特别的事?

会话A

杰森:黛娜,农历新年时你有要做什么事吗?
黛娜:没有,不过我要度个小假, 去纽约拜访一个朋友。
汤姆:你要搭飞机去吗?
黛娜:不是,我要搭火车, 比较便宜。
杰森:你什么时候出发?
黛娜:我今天下午稍晚时会出发。
汤姆:那你什么时候回来?
黛娜:星期天晚上。
汤姆:这个假还真短!

会话B

杰森:汤姆,那今年农历新年你有要做什么事吗?
汤姆:今年没有。 爱咪没有要办派对, 可是没关系,因为我得工作。
黛娜:杰森,你会拿到红包吗?
杰森:红包吗? 应该不会。
汤姆:红包是什么?
黛娜:是里面装有现金的小小的红色信封, 那是新年时祝贺他人的幸运钱。
汤姆:幸运钱? 我需要一些幸运钱来过新的一年!

读读看!

杰森:我要来开包裹了。有一张我妈寄来的卡片。
汤姆:上面写什么?
黛娜:这不关你的事!
杰森:没关系, 你可以读出来, 这不是太私密的信。

亲爱的杰森:

兔年快乐! 你知道吗? 我现在在学英文了, 所以我用英文写信给你。

这些传统的过年点心,希望你喜欢。我没办法寄红包给你, 不过你姑姑也许会给你一个。我们在新年会想念你的。我们会去你祖母家过除夕夜, 你祖母做的菜很好吃喔! 当然,这点你知道得很清楚! 你最喜欢吃她包的饺子了, 不过我没办法寄饺子给你, 对不起。

祝新年快乐!
