奥巴马夫人2009年圣诞节演讲
来源:Internet    日期: 2010-12-15

米歇尔-奥巴马宣布白宫圣诞节安排

  每年感恩节过后,美国圣诞节日的气氛越来越浓。2009年12月3日,白宫女主人米歇尔-奥巴马宣布了这一年白宫圣诞节的主题及相关活动,并向大家展示了披上节日新装的白宫。除了洋溢欢庆气氛外,白宫的节日装饰秉承了第一夫人素来倡导的理念,多处细节体现出环保意识。那么,就让我们一睹这位素以环保及健康为己任的第一夫人的风采吧!

  MRS. OBAMA:  Hello.  Good afternoon.  Welcome to the White House and Happy Holidays!  Thanks to all of you for joining us here today as we preview how we will mark the holidays here at the White House.
  
    Now, like many years past, we've actually been planning this day, and the holiday season, since the summer.  And our starting point was a very simple idea:  that we include as many people, in as many places, in as many ways as we can.  
  
    So we decided to do something just a little different.  We took about 800 ornaments left over from previous administrations, we sent them to 60 local community groups throughout the country, and asked them to decorate them to pay tribute to a favorite local landmark and then send them back to us for display here at the White House.
  
    And today, thanks to the East Wing and Residence staff, and 92 volunteers from 24 states who spent more than 3,400 hours decorating over the last several days, we have ornaments hanging on the tree behind me throughout the White House and everywhere else that include the Statue of Liberty, Mount Rushmore, the Kennedy Center -- Space Center, as well as some less known places like Davy Crockett Park in Tennessee, Pompey's Pillar in Billings, Montana and one of my favorites, the Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago.

  We also have one of the favorite traditions here at the White House on display -– it's the gingerbread masterpiece by our brilliant chef Bill Yosses, and his team.
  
    But this year we've included something a little bit different.  In addition to the gingerbread White House we also have the White House Kitchen Garden on the South Lawn, a shadow box that lets you look into the gingerbread White House and view the State Dining Room.  And I just saw there's also a little Bo (白宫养的小狗) replica.  (Laughter.)  So that's a new addition.
