Feifei
Hello and welcome to a very festive Authentic Real English. 大家好,我是冯菲菲。

Rob
…and I’m Rob. Happy Christmas everyone - and to you, Feifei.

Feifei
Oh, thanks. 但是,我怎么觉得没有什么节日气氛呐。

Rob
Festive? Ha! Look, I’m wearing my Christmas jumper, we’ve got mince pies and… Yep, I think it’s snowing outside.

Feifei
That’s not snow. It’s rain, Rob. But I just think there is something missing – something that would make us feel more Christmassy.

Rob
Um… err… presents?

Feifei
Not presents.

Rob
Christmas crackers?

Feifei
No, it’s not those – I know what's missing - it’s people! 我们需要更多的人来参加这个圣诞聚会!

Rob
Oh, what’s wrong with just me?

Feifei
You’re OK, Rob. But you know what they say? “The more the merrier”.

Rob
Right – you mean the situation or occasion would be better, or more enjoyable, if lots of people joined in. More people equals more fun!

Feifei
Exactly!

Rob
OK, well, I’ll try to find some people for you, Feifei, while you enjoy some examples.

Examples
A: Is it OK if I bring some of my friends to the party tonight?
B: Of course it is – the more the merrier!

Why don't you come skiing with us? We’ve got room in the car. The more the merrier!

We’ve got our office brainstorm later. Please join us – the more the merrier!

Feifei
这里是 BBC英语教学的 “地道英语” 节目。快到圣诞节了,所以我想在演播间里办一个有很多人参加的庆祝聚会。俗话说得好:“The more the merrier.” 人越多越好,越快乐!Don’t you agree, Rob? Rob? Oh, where’s he gone?

Rob
Ah, don’t worry, Feifei, I’m here, and I’ve found some people for you. Look!

Dan
Hey, Feifei!

Feifei
Oh, hello!

Roy
Hi, Feifei!

Feifei
Hi, Roy!

Catherine
Hello, Feifei!

Feifei
Hello. Wow! BBC英语教学的全体工作人员都来了!But it’s getting a bit crowded in here now.

Rob
Yes, save some room for me.

Feifei
Squeeze in, Rob – the more the merrier!

Rob
Ooh, right, OK. Excuse me. Thank you… Ooh, it is a bit of a squeeze, isn’t it? But… there, I’m in.

Everyone
Phwaoh! Not again, Rob! Oh, What is that?
Aww! Have you been eating chicken?
What are you having for dinner?

Rob
Oops, sorry. Too many Brussels sprouts I’m afraid.

Everyone
Is that the time?
I’ve got to get out of here…
Yeah, I’ve got to go as well.
I must breathe!
You ruined my life!

Rob
Oh, right… See ya!

Feifei
Now look what you’ve done – you’ve ruined our Christmas party! It’s not so merry now.

Rob
Oh, well. Happy Christmas, Feifei!

Feifei
You too.
