Duowei News reported that, recently, China issued a number of documents demanding that the Party, the government organs, the schools, and other organizations prohibit any participation in activities related to Western religious festivals. A video clip on the Internet showed that China does not just prohibit “Christmas” and “Christmas Eve.” It topples all Christmas trees, and also organizes the students to swear, under oath, that they will not participate in Western festivals. The authorities claim that the move is aimed at strengthening traditional culture and enhancing cultural self-confidence.
