thanksgiving 的时候所有的人不用工作,有休息,所以他们一般不喜欢出去,这是silkworm  的 cacoon 一样的。但是因为商店都 offer  很好的 sales   , 东西很便宜,吸引很陡人,让他们离自己的cacoon!
ai, 对不起,我的汉语水平非常差,大概的意思你知道了吗?得原来的意思是silkwork 做的东西(around its body).

cocoon常用来形容现代都市人的孤独离群症,就像蚕一样,作茧自缚.
If winter comes, can spring be frozen ahead?

Hi, 我知道中文是有这种说法, 不过我想问您是指英文还是中文? 我记得有个外国朋友曾跟我说, 他们常用这个单词形容母爱, 跟shelter差不多, 谢谢!
