“Christmas is a Shame for the Chinese,” a Middle School Principal Told the Students

In recent years, the Chinese government has been boycotting Christmas as a holiday. On December 24, a secondary school in Anhui Province told the students to “resist the Western holidays and start with myself.” The school principal also gave a speech entitled “Christmas is a shame for the Chinese.”

At the ceremony of the 125th anniversary of Mao Zedong’s birth, the school got one student representative to deliver a speech entitled “The Great Leader Chairman Mao.” The official Weibo account of the local Si County released important news about an event. The title was, “Resist Western Holidays and Start with Myself.”

This release mentioned that, in recent years, “foreign holidays” such as Christmas have been popular among elementary and secondary school students. Some young students “follow the trend and respect the foreign holidays. However, this runs against the school’s patriotic traditional culture education.” The release said that this year is the 125th anniversary of Mao Zedong’s birth. At this “special moment,” in order to further help students “to establish a correct viewpoint on life and values, and to improve students’ abilities to distinguish between right and wrong,” the middle school at Si County used the flag-raising ceremony to give the students an education in “resisting the Western holidays and starting with myself.”

The school principal delivered a speech titled, “Christmas is a shame for the Chinese.” He said that in 1860 “Christian followers of the British and French allied forces invaded our country and attacked and looted Beijing.” He added that in 1900, during the Siege of the International Legations, “Christians killed our people, leaving exposed bodies on the streets. Christians insulted our women.”

The principal also said that after the allied forces invaded China, “on the day before their Christmas Day, that is, December 24, they ran competitions on murder, arson, and robbery.” “These utterly conscienceless religious followers prayed to the Lord Jesus so that the Lord would bless them so they could kill people without sin.”
