Unit 8 When is your birthday? 文化背景知识介绍
1. Ask students about which age groups in their culture like to talk about how old they are and which age groups don't. In the United States, young children like to tell how old they are. Teenagers are sometimes sensitive about age questions because they want people to think they are older than they really are. After age 25, it is not considered polite to ask someone's age, except for business reasons. Many people in the United States think it's good to be young and bad to be old. How is it in the students' culture? Do teenagers like to tell their ages? Do younger or older adults get more respect?

 2. Most American children celebrate birthdays with a cake with lighted candles on top, one candle for each year of their age. The birthday boy (or girl) is supposed to make a wish (without telling anyone what it is) and blow out the candles. If he blows out all of the candles with one breath, the wish will come true. Singing "Happy Birthday to You" is also a tradition on birthdays.

 Some birthdays are more important than other birthdays, especially in the life of a teenager and young adult.

 Age 13: becomes a teenager

Age 16: can obtain a driver's license in the United States (for an automobile)

Age 18: can register to vote

Age 21: can legally drink alcohol

 In regard to astrology, many Americans know their sign (of the Zodiac) but most people do not seriously believe in astrology. In China, people sometimes celebrate their lunar birthday rather than their solar birthday. Chinese people also use twelve animals to symbolize the year in which one is born. The animals represent the twelve Earthly Branches, and they are the rat, the cattle, the tiger, the rabbit, the dragon, the snake, the horse, the sheep, the monkey, the rooster, the dog, and the pig.
