        On December 17, people celebrate National Underdog Day in America. Started in1976, the weird holiday is a day dedicated to the people who work hard but never get on top,for example,those unsung (默默无闻的)heroes and the“second bananas”who complete some of our favorite“top dogs”in literature or movies.
  The word“underdog”originated in the old building industries calling wooden planks(厚木板)dogs.The person on top of the wooden plank was called the“over-dog,”the supervisor(监督人).The person working below the wooden plank,which was usually dark,dirty and full of sawdust(木屑),was called the“underdog.”
  The best way to celebrate this day should be with the company of little people who others call losers.A party may be organized with them as guests where the food served consists of the cheapest in the market.Watching TV with them can also be fun especially if the movie features underdogs,such as Dr.Watson of Sherlock Holmes.Other people,however,conduct programs honoring the underdogs who succeeded,which aim to encourage the hard working people to keep on striving to reach their goals.
