Say no to Xmas gifts

外研版初一年级:Spring Festival

关键词:Christmas and Father Christmas

话题归类:节假日活动Festivals, holidays and celebrations

 

 

CHRISTMAS passed last week. Did Santa give you gifts? Some people say you should say no to Santa's gifts!

Last month, ten students from Tsinghua, Peking and Renmin universities wrote a letter to all the Chinese. In the letter, they say Chinese people should stop celebrating Christmas. People should spend more time on Chinese festivals like the Spring Festival.

They say foreign festivals are more and more popular in China. Many people celebrate Christmas, Valentine's Day (情人节) and Halloween (万圣节前夕). But fewer people celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival or the Dragon Boat Festival.

"It is bad for our culture. We should stop it," say the students.

But some people don't agree (同意). They say it is good to know foreign cultures. Others say they won't give up Chinese festivals. A survey shows that Spring Festival is still the favourite festival of seven in ten Chinese. One in four people celebrate both Christmas and Spring Festival.

What do you think about it?

"Why not celebrate Christmas? It makes us happy. My school held a big party on Christmas Day. We played games and exchanged (交换) gifts with each other. I think the classmates have got closer!"

 

By Sun Long, 13, from Beijing



"I agree with the students. It's not because I don't like Christmas. It's because we really need to care (关心) more about our festivals. When I was young, at Spring Festival, family members would cook delicious food together. But now, we just eat out."

 

By Xu Xinxin, 13, from Ningbo, Zhejiang
