I think that my seniors were not happy with the New Year due mainly to two reasons, one being a big expense at such a festival, the other an increase of the age.
As young people, we could be proud to announce our growth in age, but they, much older than us, were all obsessed with the uneasiness or fright of seeing their age increase.

以下是新东方提供的版本,供参考。

The reasons for the elders’ mixed feelings about the New Year, I think, come down to the following two ones. On the one hand, celebrating the New Year means a great expense to them. On the other hand, the fleeting time exerts considerable pressure on them. Kids may say excitedly that they begin another year in their life after the New Year; while, elders may sigh, “Well, I’ve become one year older!” For the kids, the New Year means that they are making progress in the most brilliant part of their life. On the contrary, for the elders, it’s an indication that they are sliding into their declining years.


个人感觉 "two ones" 这样的说法是非常欠妥的。
