Lesson Transcript

大家好,我是Olivia。
歡迎收看「香港節日系列」。
今集我們會介紹愚人節。
雖然不是每個人都會特意在這天整蠱人,
但我們就來看看幾件在香港發生的愚人節事件吧!
中國有一個關於愚人的傳說,你有沒有聽過呢?
我會在這影片最後公佈答案。
在香港大部分愚人節的玩笑都是在聊天室及論壇上發放網絡謠言;
例如某名人被殺,某公司倒閉等這些無聊的惡作劇。
另外也有些年輕人利用這天來向暗戀對象表白,
試探對方反應,萬一被拒絕就可以說是開玩笑。
雖然很多人以這節日為藉口而整蠱朋友,
但最好只是無傷大雅的玩笑,而非太過分,令人身心受創或恐慌。
例如2003年,當沙士在香港蔓延期間,
一名中學生發放假新聞,
指香港已經成為疫區,海陸空交通全面封閉。
這假消息在網路迅速廣傳,引起公眾恐慌。
後來港府需要召開記者招待會闢謠,並拘捕此學生。
而在同一天,也傳出華人巨星張國榮跳樓自殺的消息,
當時每個人都以為是愚人節的惡作劇;直至看到新聞報道,才驚覺那是真的發生了,
震撼娛樂圈及全球華人社會。
與某些國家不同,香港的新聞媒體不會在愚人節製造假新聞;
所以在相信一切消息前應先查詢可靠的消息來源。
現在就來揭曉問題的答案。中國有一個關於愚人的傳說,你有沒有聽過呢?
愚公移山是一個耳熟能詳著名的中國傳說,
話說有一位叫愚公的老人家,決定要把阻擋通道的兩座高山剷平。
人們都說他傻,但他以毅力和恆心打動玉皇大帝,最終幫他把兩座高山搬走了。
你覺得這一集怎麼樣?有沒有學到一些有趣的知識?
在你的國家,有很多愚人節的惡作劇嗎?
在CantoneseClass101.com留言,和我們分享吧。下次見!

Hi Chan Yong Keong,


This is a pretty common way to scare people by telling them about a ghost story. I think it is not bad to give people one day to misbehave and then they have to return to normal behavior after the April Fool`s Day. The humor helps break the ice sometimes. :smile:


Thank you for sharing your April Fool`s Day story with us.:thumbsup:

Yes. My classmate lie to me and any subject teacher about a ghost behind them when it was primary school during April Fool's Day.
