英国女王2015年圣诞演讲: 黑暗中的希望(中英文)
英国女王在致辞中特别提到了二战胜利70周年、欧洲发生的恐怖袭击事件等,她表示“光明必定战胜黑暗”。

女王演讲的中文翻译
在每年的这个时候,最能让人感到快乐和亲切的,莫过于圣诞树上闪烁的彩灯了。圣诞树的盛行,和我的曾曾祖父母有着很大的关系。他们是维多利亚女王和阿尔伯特亲王。在这幅感人的画像发行之后,很多家庭也想拥有一颗自己的圣诞树,让这一风俗流传开来。
1949年,我新婚伊始,就以一个海军妻子的身份,第一次在马耳他欢度圣诞节。从此以后,我们曾多次故地重游,最近的一次,是上个月在那里举行了英联邦领袖会议。今年,我会见了一群新领袖,他们是女王青年领袖,他们是一群令人鼓舞的青年,每个青年都是代表着不同国家的希望。
我们团聚在圣诞树下,展望来年。我会迎来一个繁忙的2016年。
同时,这也让我们得以回顾过去的一年,想想那些背井离乡的人,那些已经离开我们的人。很多人都说,在失去亲人后度过的第一个圣诞节是最为难过的。但我们也该在此时铭记那些应该感恩的人。
是的,今年这个世界都面临了一些黑暗时刻,但是就像我们经常经常在唱圣诞颂歌时提及《约翰福音》中有关于希望的一段话:光照在黑暗中,黑暗却并未被照亮。
今年夏天值得我们感恩的一个原因是,今年是二战70周年。在抗日胜利日,我们向那些曾经在远东参战的幸存老兵致敬;同时也缅怀那些为抗日献出生命的士兵。
从皇家骑兵卫队阅兵场到维斯美斯特教堂的老兵方阵,一定是有史以来行进地最慢的,因为人们想对这些老兵表达感激之情。
二战结束后,奥斯陆的人们每年都会给特拉法加广场赠送礼物---一颗圣诞树,圣诞树上共点缀着500个灯泡,圣诞树的最顶端有个五角星,代表着圣诞星。人们不管信仰基督教与否都很喜欢这颗圣诞树。装饰圣诞树的传统也源于阿尔伯特亲王时代,他选择用天使来装饰家里的圣诞树,这也让我们铭记圣诞故事的核心就是基于每个不同的家庭的。

耶稣在短暂的一生流离失所,最后惨遭迫害,诞生基督永恒的意义不是复仇或暴力,而是人们的相亲相爱。
这并不容易,但是我们不能灰心丧气。相反,这激励着我们要更加努力,感谢那些给我们带来爱和幸福的人,我们也要随时随地传播爱。
'LIGHT SHINES IN DARKNESS' THE QUEEN'S CHRISTMAS SPEECH IN FULL 
At this time of year, few sights evoke more feelings of cheer and goodwill than the twinkling lights of a Christmas tree.
英国女王2015年圣诞演讲: 黑暗中的希望


 
The popularity of a tree at Christmas is due in part to my great-great grandparents, Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. After this touching picture was published, many families wanted a Christmas tree of their own, and the custom soon spread.
In 1949, I spent Christmas in Malta as a newly-married naval wife. We have returned to that island over the years, including last month for a meeting of Commonwealth leaders; and this year I met another group of leaders: The Queen's Young Leaders, an inspirational group, each of them a symbol of hope in their own Commonwealth communities.
 
Gathering round the tree gives us a chance to think about the year ahead - I am looking forward to a busy 2016, though I have been warned I may have Happy Birthday sung to me more than once or twice. It also allows us to reflect on the year that has passed, as we think of those who are far away or no longer with us. Many people say the first Christmas after losing a loved one is particularly hard. But it's also a time to remember all that we have to be thankful for.
It is true that the world has had to confront moments of darkness this year, but the Gospel of John contains a verse of great hope, often read at Christmas carol services: 'The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it'.
One cause for thankfulness this summer was marking 70 years since the end of the Second World War. On VJ Day, we honoured the remaining veterans of that terrible conflict in the Far East, as well as remembering the thousands who never returned.
 
The procession from Horse Guards Parade to Westminster Abbey must have been one of the slowest ever, because so many people wanted to say 'thank you' to them.
At the end of that war, the people of Oslo began sending an annual gift of a Christmas tree for Trafalgar Square. It has 500 light bulbs and is enjoyed not just by Christians but by people of all faiths, and of none. At the very top sits a bright star, to represent the Star of Bethlehem.
The custom of topping a tree also goes back to Prince Albert's time. For his family's tree, he chose an angel, helping to remind us that the focus of the Christmas story is on one particular family.
For Joseph and Mary, the circumstances of Jesus's birth - in a stable - were far from ideal, but worse was to come as the family was forced to flee the country. It's no surprise that such a human story still captures our imagination and continues to inspire all of us who are Christians, the world over.
 
Despite being displaced and persecuted throughout his short life, Christ's unchanging message was not one of revenge or violence but simply that we should love one another.
Although it is not an easy message to follow, we shouldn't be discouraged; rather, it inspires us to try harder: to be thankful for the people who bring love and happiness into our own lives, and to look for ways of spreading that love to others, whenever and wherever we can.
 
One of the joys of living a long life is watching one's children, then grandchildren, then great grandchildren, help decorate the Christmas tree. And this year my family has a new member to join in the fun!
The customary decorations have changed little in the years since that picture of Victoria and Albert's tree first appeared, although of course electric lights have replaced the candles.
There's an old saying that 'it is better to light a candle than curse the darkness'.
There are millions of people lighting candles of hope in our world today. Christmas is a good time to be thankful for them, and for all that brings light to our lives.
I wish you a very happy Christmas.
