春节、情人节PK,春节明显占上风。今天是西方的情人节,只因一不小心赶在春节前4天,于是乎,今年的情人节少了几丝玫瑰浪漫的柔情,却多了几把春节红火的热情。对远离家乡的情侣而言,为了“赶”春节,为了能与父母团聚共度“土节”,他/她们只能忍痛暂舍另一半,与洋节说“再见”。

The young office executive is distraught because her boyfriend left for this weekend's family reunion yesterday, on the eve of Valentine's Day.

Li's plight illustrates how Valentine's Day, which has been becoming increasingly popular among Chinese in the past decade, has been subdued by the traditional Chinese New Year. 商务英语词汇 X!j3P5|j5a&xw

Roses, for example, are affordable. They were sold at 5-8 yuan ($0.64-1.03) each yesterday in Beijing, almost the same as their usual price but a quarter of the price for last year's Valentine's Day.

Sources at www.ctrip.com, one of the largest hotel-booking websites in China, said that hotels are offering discounts for lovers staying overnight, but most hotel rooms in downtown Beijing are not booked yet.

Restaurants offering a romantic ambience are suffering. A manager surnamed Wang at a popular Yunnan restaurant in Beijing's nightlife centre Sanlitun said that only fewer than half of the tables had been booked by last night. Last year, all the tables were booked, he said. 商务英语词汇u\2Sn'jA!l

The lack of a mood for love can be attributed mainly to a busy schedule prior to the Chinese New Year. People are leaving for hometowns, visiting business partners, cleaning houses and booking family dinners and can spare little time for a Western festival. 商务英语词汇J.^$w?%_V
