  【英语美文:圣诞礼物】每到圣诞节前夕,孩子们都会精心准备一些礼物,和其他小朋友交换,大家都很期待自己会得到什么样的礼物。但是,有些小孩子却买不起圣诞礼物,但是他们有很美好的愿望,他们的愿望不是想为自己争取什么,而是想要送给别人什么……
  My friend Paul received an automobile[汽车] from his brother as a Christmas present. On Christmas Eve when Paul came out of his office, a boy was walking around the shiny new car, admiring[欣赏] it. Seeing Paul coming, the boy asked, “Is this your car, sir?” Paul nodded and said, “My brother gave it to me for Christmas.” The boy was surprised and said, “You mean your brother gave it to you and it didn’t cost you anything?

And some day I’m going to give you one just like it… then you can see for yourself all the pretty things in the Christmas windows that I’ve been trying to tell you about.”
  Paul got out and lifted the crippled boy to the back seat of his car. The shining-eyed older brother climbed in beside him. The three of them began a memorable[令人难忘的] holiday ride. That Christmas Eve, Paul learned what Jesus meant when he said, “It is more blessed to give…”+
