    第一部分:阅读理解(共20小题,每小题2分,满分40分)

    阅读下列材料,从每小题所给的四个选项(A、B、C 和 D)中,选出最佳选项。

    Karen Christiansen in Madison, Wisconsin, is licking stamps and addressing envelopes. Soon she and her fiance will be sending out invitations to their wedding. Meanwhile, Wei Yashung is at the hairdresser’s in Shanghai, China. She knows she will have a long wait. It’s May 18,the most popular day to get married in China. The room is filled with brides preparing for their special day.

    “Everyone feels very emotional at this time. There are a lot of rituals and superstitions(迷信)at the wedding, ”says Maxine Rowe, an anthropologist.

    Karen’s aunt and sisters help her check off the things she needs according to old customs. They recite the traditional verse, “Something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue.”Friends and relatives gather around and contribute grandmother’s locket(纪念品盒),a cousin’s wedding veil, or a blue garter to prepare for the ceremony.

    Many wedding traditions in western cultures began long ago and were designed to protect the couple from ad luck.“The wedding veil is a Greek custom intended to hide the bride from evil spirits,” says Maxine.“The Romans contributed the custom of bridesmaids to confuse the spirits. Wedding bouquets had strong-smelling herbs to scare witches and devils.”

    In China, thousands of couples choose May 18 for heir wedding day.“In the past, people consulted an almanac(历书)to find lucky days,” explains Maxine.“But in modern times a new tradition is being formed.”May 18 sounds very close in Chinese to “wo yao fa,” or “I will get rich.”It is considered a good omen to get married on this day.

    Some people don’t think it’s a good idea for everyone to get married on the same day.“It’s silly and superstitious,” one reporter wrote. But hairdressers, florist, and owners of restaurants say it’s the best day. They can raise their prices and their services are fully booked. Maybe they are the ones who should be saying, “I will get rich.”
