今年英国女王的圣诞🎄致辞的主题是尊重,她呼吁:“即使存在着最深刻的分歧,以尊重他人和作为人类同胞对待他人,也是增进理解的第一步。”女王从回忆父亲在一战的往事讲到2018年家族大事——王室的两个婚礼、两个新生儿,即将到来的一个孩子。英国女王每年的圣诞演讲充满了仪式感,是英国人民在圣诞节始终保留的特色节目。今年92岁的女王陛下在位66年,是全球52个英联邦国家中16个国家的国家元首。当然”共和思想深入人心“的国人肯定理解不了英国人每年花几个亿养着王室,因为国人的“精明”归根结底往往如此只会算小账。

在今年的致辞中,女王开篇就提到了对于很多人来说,剑桥大学国王学院的九篇读经与圣诞颂歌庆典(Nine Lessons and Carols)标志着圣诞节的开始。同时,2018年也被称作“庆典之年”(a year of centenaries),见证了英国皇家空军100周年。 女王提到皇家空军难忘的庆典和列队飞行,并回顾了她的父亲曾在世界第一次世界大战中参军的故事。

女王还提到了圣诞时节对于英国人来说的重要性。接着,女王又提到了发生在2018年的两场皇室婚礼(分别是哈利王子与梅根的婚礼,以及尤金妮公主与杰克的婚礼),表达了迎接两名皇室的新生儿的喜悦。同时, 2018年也是威尔士亲王的70岁大寿。可以说对于女王来说,2018年的家务事可真是不少。

但最重要的,女王表达了此次致辞的主题-善意(goodwill),强调了向往世界和平、尊重他人,是我们共同的渴望和了解互相的第一步。

女王致辞的全文:

"For many, the service of Nine Lessons and Carols from King's College, Cambridge, is when Christmas begins. Listened to by millions of people around the world, it starts with a chorister singing the first verse of Once in Royal David's City.

The priest who introduced this service to King's College chapel, exactly one hundred years ago, was Eric Milner-White. He had served as a military chaplain in the First World War. Just six weeks after the Armistice, he wanted a new kind of service which, with its message of peace and goodwill, spoke to the needs of the times.

Twenty eighteen has been a year of centenaries. The Royal Air Force celebrated its 100th anniversary with a memorable fly-past demonstrating a thrilling unity of purpose and execution. We owe them and all our Armed Services our deepest gratitude.

My father served in the Royal Navy during the First World War. He was a midshipman in HMS Collingwood at the Battle of Jutland in 1916. The British fleet lost 14 ships and 6,000 men in that engagement. My father wrote in a letter: 'How and why we were not hit beats me'. Like others, he lost friends in the war.

At Christmas, we become keenly aware of loved ones who have died, whatever the circumstances. But, of course, we would not grieve if we did not love.

Closer to home, it's been a busy year for my family, with two weddings and two babies, and another child expected soon. It helps to keep a grandmother well occupied. We have had other celebrations too, including the 70th birthday of The Prince of Wales.

Some cultures believe a long life brings wisdom. I'd like to think so. Perhaps part of that wisdom is to recognise some of life's baffling paradoxes, such as the way human beings have a huge propensity for good, and yet a capacity for evil. Even the power of faith, which frequently inspires great generosity and self-sacrifice, can fall victim to tribalism.

But through the many changes I have seen over the years, faith, family and friendship have been not only a constant for me but a source of personal comfort and reassurance.

In April, the Commonwealth Heads of Government met in London. My father welcomed just eight countries to the first such meeting in 1948. Now the Commonwealth includes 53 countries with 2.4 billion people, a third of the world's population.

Its strength lies in the bonds of affection it promotes, and a common desire to live in a better, more peaceful world. Even with the most deeply held differences, treating the other person with respect and as a fellow human being is always a good first step towards greater understanding.

Indeed, the Commonwealth Games, held this year on Australia's Gold Coast, are known universally as the Friendly Games because of their emphasis on goodwill and mutual respect.

The Christmas story retains its appeal since it doesn't provide theoretical explanations for the puzzles of life. Instead it's about the birth of a child and the hope that birth 2,000 years ago brought to the world. Only a few people acknowledged Jesus when he was born. Now billions follow him.

I believe his message of peace on earth and goodwill to all is never out of date. It can be heeded by everyone; it's needed as much as ever.

A very happy Christmas to you all."????
