Facing forward / facing backward
Does anyone know how to say "facing forward" and "facing backward" in Chinese?

Hehe, changye, I had an overdose of social gathering yesterday so now I'm back at my place just relaxing :) Simon is right; -no traditions attached to Christmas Day in Sweden, except for watching Ivanhoe, skijumping from Garmisch-Partenkirchen and the christmas concert of the Wiener philharmonics. All of which have been discontinued in swedish TV. 哭死了！

Hi simon and dunderklumpen
"Chiristmas Eve" is translated as "平安夜" (Silent Night) in Chinese, but in reality it isn't a silent night anymore, hehe. Have good holidays!

I think you might have been studying Chinese for too long and have begun to forget about our Swedish traditions ;) Ivanhoe and Skijumping is for New Year's Day, of course!!
I can't seem to remember any Christmas concert, but there will be a New Years concert on New Year's Day with the Wiener philharmonics. Oh, and if you happen to live in the southern parts, you can watch the skijump on Danish television...

Changye: I don't really have much to do on Christmas Day. It's a holiday in Sweden, but there aren't really any traditions attached to it. All the actual Christmasy things like presents, big meal with the family and all that jazz was yesterday, on Christmas Eve. Only chumps celebrate on Christmas Day.
