吃混有生蒜的酸奶能给你带来好运。要是第一次约会时就这样干,我们不知道这能否达到预期效果。把它看成治疗感冒的强效药还差不多,因为大蒜能增强免疫。

Austrians tend to bemodest about how successful they are, especiallywhen it comes to money. Perhaps this is because it's traditionally thought tobe bad luck to mention how successful you are - and if you are stupid enough tomention it, knock on wood to make sure you don't lose that good fortune.

奥地利人在谈及他们的成就时往往非常谦逊,尤其当谈到钱的时候。或许这是因为,按照习俗他们会认为,怕你在努力奔向成功时会带来厄运,如果你不小心提起这个,赶紧去敲几下木头以确保你的好运别溜走。

On the other hand, if they sawgoats, pigeons, or wolves, these were good omens.

在奥地利举行婚礼时会伴有不少风俗迷信。按照传统 ,当男方想安排他派个亲友团代他向新娘或娘家人提亲。如果双方在结亲前有人看到了个瞎子,出家人,或一个孕妇,这场婚礼注定因为这些而被认为有不好的兆头。相反,要是有人看到羊群,鸽群,或狼群就会被认为是个好彩头。

In the old days it was considered unlucky for awoman to marry a man with a surname that started with the same letter as hers.A rhyme mothers would tell their daughters went: "To change the name andnot the letter, is to change the worst and not the better." An Austrianbride was not even supposed to practice writing her new name before thewedding.

在以前,要是一个女人嫁给了一个和自己一样的,名和字都是同一字母开头的男士,(例如:Amy Adams和Ryan Reynolds感觉就不好了)会被认为不会有什么好结果的。这时带有(同样)叠音字母名字的妈妈就会这样告诉他们的女儿:“赶紧去把名字改了。换个字母,把它改的越不一样越好。” 可以肯定地说这位奥地利新娘一定会趁在婚礼前会把他的新名练的好好的。
