Passage 1

The South Pole(南极)is a particular place on the earth. When people stand at the top of it looking around, they will find all directions face to north. No matter how they make their step in which direction, they will always walk towards the north. That's to say, only north and south exist there, neither east nor west exists.

At the top of the South Pole, any clock or watch keeps good time because all meridians(子午线)join there. All kinds of local time are completely suitable there. It is even difficult to distinguish New Year's Eve from New Year's Day.

The explorers and scientists from different countries always fix the time according to their own. Therefore the time by their watches was different when the people with different nationality gathered there.

The Winter Solstice(冬至日)is an important festival at the South Pole. This day is called Midwinter Festival(仲冬日),on which the daytime is the shortest in a year and the night the longest. All people at the South Pole extend greetings each other and present gifts to each other. They usually give all kinds of celebrations. From that day on, the daytime will get longer day by day.
