the spring festival is very important to chinese people。in the past，people could not often have meat，rice or other delicious food。they could only eat these during the spring festival。so every year they hoped that the spring festival would come soon。now，although people‘s life is much better，and we can eat the delicious foods everyday。people still like the festival。because most people can have a long holiday，and we are free to go on a trip or visit our friends or have parties with our family。in the evenings，we can have a big meal in the restaurant or stay at home with family and watch the tv programmes。
i like the spring festival very much。how wonderful the spring festival is！
the merchant of veniceis a book that was written by shakespeare. the book tells us such a story：bassanio, a noble venetian, who, having but a small patrimony, had nearly ehausted his little fortune by living in too epensive a manner for his slender means, as men of high rank with small fortunes are too apt to do. antonio was his best friend. whenever bassanio wanted money, antonio assisted him. one day bassanio came to antonio, and wanted antonio to lend him three thousand ducats to marry his lover portia. but antonio had no money on him at that time to lend his friend. so they went together to shylock, the jew, who was a usurer. he was a hard-hearted man, and he hated antonio very much. so he promised antonio at once, but antonio should go with him to a lawyer, and there signed in merry sport a bond, that if he did not repay the money by a certain day, he would forfeit a pound of flesh, to be cut off from any part of his body that shylock pleased. antonio promised. but after bassanio married, antonio’s ship sank, so he had no money to return to shylock. shylock hated antonio so he wanted the pound of flesh. bassanio knew that and took the money twenty times over to save his friend. but shylock only wanted to kill antonio. when there seemed to be no way to help antonio, portia came. she dressed herself as a man who was a lawyer. she contended with shylock on the law court. she persuaded shylock to accept the money but not the flesh. but shylock only wanted to kill antonio; he didn’t accept the money. at last portia found a rip in the agreement. so she saved antonio and shylock got punished.
shylock is a villain, and in our life, we sometimes can barge up against the man like shylock. maybe they want our money or something else. we do not want to come into contact with such men, but not everything is following our wills. if we come up against the villains, we can use our wit to beat them.
first, when we find he is a villain, we must be calm and brave; we mustn’t be panic. we can speak to him and tell him you have no money, and we can make him think that we are weak or a little afraid. then he is relaed, we can call our relations or the police to help ourselves. or we even can call others for help. others may help us. on the other hand, if others need our help, we should do our best to help them. we must use our wit to fight against the villains.
when we come up against the villains, we must believe that righteousness can always overcome improbity. if we know that, we can see others are helping us and we are helping others who need our help. we are together building a more clear and wonderful world.

my mother 我的母亲
when i sat at the desk, trying to write the essay, i found it hard to set pen to paper. staring at the topic i deliberately chose for myself "my mother", i felt the memory of 20 years with my mother suddenly turned into a haze, blurring my eyes to discern the past, with nothing towering, nothing flaring, nothing impressive or special enough as a landmark. the haze gradually cleared away, revealing the image of an amicable woman. i recalled a line from the famous movie "sleepless in seattle". the radio column hostess asked sam, "what"s so special about your wife?" he answered, "that"s millions of small things." right,trivial and commonplace, like obscure beans, yet woven into the most spectacular necklace by the power of love. my mother is ordinary, but in my eyes she is special.
my mother gave birth to me with exceptionally difficult labor. father received an emergency notice and was faced with a choice between the adult and the infant. of course,the adult. so my coming into this world was an unexpected fortune at the price of mother"s painful insistence. thus my 20 years began like this my mother exerted every effort to give me love, but i returned her with a deep scar that was to stay with her all through my growth.
my mother is a senior high school english teacher. under standably, she wanted her daughter to pick up english early to give her an edge to later study, which i did not understand at the age of eight. i was so obsessed with fun and games that i hated to stay peacefully with all those strange phonetic symbols and odd words. i wondered what pleasure mother seemed to have found in teaching me a,b, c. wasn"t teaching at school tire some enough for her? i went on strike, refusing to spell a single word no matter how tender or severe mother tried to be with me. for the first time in my life, mother beat me, imprinting on my mind. the physical pain was gone long, long ago. but i have finally come to understand how it pained my mother to beat me for my obstinacy and disobedience, and i ache at her pain.
mother never gave up evoking in me an interest in knowledge. she placed the most emphasis on my education and took the most pleasure in my gradual formation of self-discipline in preparing myself for future development. thanks to her effort and influence, i have been doing well, not only in english, but also in my positive attitudes and conviction towards life.
now i am so grateful to my mother for everything she has taught me, but at that time it was far beyond my comprehension. as a little girl, i thought of my mother as meticulous and my father as a best playmate. i still remember i wrote in my elementary school a composition dedicated to my father about how he cared for me. naturally mother felt she was ignored, so i wrote another one for mother, intending to tell her she was so good a teacher that she sometimes had only students on mind and neglected her daughter. unexpectedly, mother was gloomed and her eyes went wet. i am so sorry now for that affected composition. i am mother"s daughter, and i am mother"s student. i could never be neglected by mother, because i am the forever scar on her body, the forever pain on her mind, yet the forever bliss in her life.
i did not write much in the past about mother"s love for me. today, this essay is for her, and for her only. i wish to let her know my regret and gratitude. i wish she could hear, "i love you, mother."
the lunar new year
the lunar new year is a great occasion to the chinese people. it lasts about the first four days of the year， during which people do not work except for the workers on duty. students do not go to school， and shops are closed.
several days before the new year， people begin to prepare. farmers kill pigs， sheep， cocks and hens. city dwellers buy meat fish and vegetables. houses are cleaned； coupletsare posted on the doors. colourful lanterns are hung at the gate.
on the eve of the new year， each family has its members gatherd together and eats a family reunion dinner. after the meal they watch tv until the clock strickes twelve. then every family sets off long strings of small firecrackers and other fire works to welcome the new year. on the first day of the new year， almost everyone is dressed in his or her best. when people meet on the way， they say to each other "happy new year". friends and relatives pay new year calls and gives presents to each other. children indulge themselves in games.
new year party
on new year"s eve，our class had a party. the atmosphere was good. it was out of the ordinary from the very begining. the boy student from one bedroom gave an unusual performance. we saw a boy named li xinmin turn off all the lights in a sudden snap. then with three resounding（响亮的） crow of a cock echoing in the hall，the hall was again brightly lit in a snap.
then，the representative of the bedroom zhu guozhang asked us to guess a line of a poem related to the above situation. he added that li xinmin alone was born in the year of the dog and the other three were all born in the year of the chicken. they left us all in confusion. and it was our monitor who was quickwitted（机智的）. he shouted our， "the day breaks as the cock crows three times at dawn." the hall after that，they had another item. this time li xinmin was placed in the middle of the circle. while he was standing there，the other three stood around him，each bowing down to him at an angle of 120 degrees. it was an idiom. this time i got it right："the dog stands out among a group of chickens."
my plan of next year
a new year ，a new start，when i stand on the edge of a new year，i can"t help thinking about my plan of next year.
just as the old saying：“well began is the half of the success.”so i decide that i should be at work while the others are still relaxing ，and then ，at the beginning ，i"m quicker than the others and of course i will get better result than the others.
but ，what i really decide to do is that i must make good of anytime i can spare though it seems impossible. while，i will do my best to live up with what i have planned，and the result will prove it.相关热词搜索： 英语爱作文优质7篇 作文 英语
