What Is “YuanDan” In Chinese?

| 中文里,“元旦”的含义?

2020 yuan dan kuai le happy new year 2020!

“元旦” (YuanDan) refers to the first day of the New Year in China, which is January 1st of the solar calendar in most countries of the world. “2020 元旦” in Chinese means the date of January 1st in 2020.

元旦,在中国指的是每年阳历的 1 月 1 日这一天,即世界上大多数国家的“新年”。2020 年元旦,在中国是指 2020 年 1 月 1 日。

The character “元” in Chinese means something like the first, the initial thing, or something big. Therefore, there are similar Chinese words like “元年”, “元月” produced, which respectively indicate the meaning of “First Year” and “First Month” in a period.

“元”,在中文里,有头一个、首个、第一、初始的、大的含义。所以在中文里有“元年”、“元月” 这样的汉语词语,分别表示“第一年”、“第一个月”的含义。

The second character “旦” initially means a day, especially the first day of a month in the Chinese lunar calendar (called “初一” in Chinese). From the glyph perspective, “旦” is composed of two other Chinese characters “日” and “一”, which seems as if the sun rising from the sea level. Moreover, the character “日” in Chinese is exactly the meaning of the sun. Therefore, “旦” in Chinese also indicates the morning, to symbolize the beginning of a day.

“旦”,最初的含义指一天,尤其是指中国农历里的初一这一日。从字形上看,“旦”字由“日”和“一”两个汉字构成,仿佛太阳从海平面上升起的美景,其中“日”在中文里正好表达的是太阳的意思。因此,“旦”字在中文里也有早晨的含义,象征这一日的开始。

Chinese people combined “元” and “旦” into a new word called “元旦” in Chinese, to indicate the first day in January, also extend to the first day of New Year. The word “元旦” in Chinese is symbolizing a new start of the year while everything looks fresh and new again.

中国人将“元”字和“但”字结合起来形成“元旦”一词,指 1 月里的第 1 天,也引申为每年新年开始的第 1 天,象征着新年伊始,万象更新。

Chinese YuanDan Wishes & Greetings

| 在元旦,怎样表达祝福?

元旦 (YuanDan) is the first legal holiday held by the Chinese throughout the year, which is usually a three-day holiday including the nearest weekend. Since the day of YuanDan in 2020 is exactly Wednesday, there is only a one-day holiday available for the public on only January 1, 2020.

元旦,是中国人全年拥有的第一个法定节假日,通常联合最近的周末可享受 3 天的小长假。但由于这一天正好是星期三,因此 2020 年的元旦在中国仅在 2020 年 1 月1 日这一天放假 1 天。
