Believe it or not, all of the stores around here have put up CHRISTMAS decorations. Also the music in the stores actually have CHRISTMAS songs - even “Silent Night” and “Away in a Manger”. And yes Virginia they are selling CHRISTMAS trees.
The sales people in the stores and the waiters and waitresses in the restaurants are all wearing Santa hats.
No ‘Happy Holidays’ - No ‘Holiday Trees’ for sale!
They even have a Chinese name for the holiday - sheng dan jie - which means “holiday of sacred birth”.
I guess China has not figured out that CHRISTMAS is politically incorrect! Now don’t get me wrong, this is not a Chinese holiday. The Chinese are using it similar to the way we have
exploited celebrated it in America for years - as a marketing event. It is just refreshing to know that in China, Christmas has not (yet) become clouded with the trappings of western “political correctness”.
