Tourists C:



Our festival is not how China's own too, but is more optimistic about the number of foreign holidays. I hope that we are the best people to do it on our own festival.



Moderator:



Christmas, originally it was a religious festival, a exotic at the global level, people celebrate Christmas than the Christian people, this is a global phenomenon common. So today we also see this << There is such a comment on the Global Times >>, it says, should reflect what the Chinese mainstream society is it, Chinese culture too serious and stressful issues, then China is still a little less festive, holiday to relax, as well as non-holiday arrangements, especially our short term.



So why such an exotic Christmas holiday in our country could be so quickly became popular, and there can indeed have something to think about things.



Next we connect Peking University professor Zhang Yiwu, a professor Zhang You see, we have just seen, there is a comment that Chinese festivals, Chinese culture as a whole is too serious tension, which is not able to explain why more The Chinese people, especially young people willing to China over the West over a wide range of holiday?



Peking University professor Zhang Yiwu:



I want a warm atmosphere this Christmas, one is the lack of time together between us are too young to each other (holiday). We are generally family holiday gatherings, family reunion, then round and round holiday home, this Spring Festival, Mid-Autumn Festival are assigned such an important meaning. But we lack among young people, they do not leave, but we gathered in the evening out, relax, and then put their hard work throughout the year so the mood to relax, get a fun, so we tend to be less festive.



On the other hand, in fact, Christmas in China has gone through a process of localization, in fact, it has weakened religious background, we are now the symbol, like Santa Claus, Christmas car, decorate the bright snow, in fact, rendering a lively atmosphere, the winter decorate more beautiful, so that we can spend a relaxing and happy this winter night. Then it is full of music, there are a lot of fashion films from the West, which render these atmospheres, gave We added some festive atmosphere.



Moderator:



Zhang, you see, because it is inside the West over Christmas there is a religious background in it, to us, you have just said, and this factor is essentially religious pumping clean. So now for the Chinese people, about this festival, over what? What map is?



Zhang Yi Wu:



We will feel generally older people, or more mature sound, he is generally interested in the fact that the festival is not great, you'll find it difficult to see very mature and old people came to this section, except outside the relatively small number of people, there are few such groups. But the main place you will find in each consumer, in which all the major shopping centers in the catering side of the store to see all young people. They had this Festival, one to relax, and the second is to get a chance to get together with friends. Use this section as a pretext, his own mood to relax, put themselves and their friends gathering to find a pretext not go, so everyone very happy. So I think our religious meaning is not so strong, in fact, borrow someone else to install your own bottle of wine to have a relaxed and happy together young people between the side at this moment unfolded.



Moderator:



Professor Xie Zhang, Christmas is a lot of these young people every year over year, controversy every year, but this year's obviously more of a controversial new content is in some places in such a boycott Christmas, how back thing? continue to look down.



Commentary:



Some people in the Christmas joy, while others prohibit us for Christmas.



Today << >> China Daily article on the Northwestern University School of Feng Xiao modern prohibit students from Christmas Eve, and organizational culture promo Traditional reported, causing widespread concern in public opinion. According to reports, yesterday's Christmas Eve, school From 7 pm to start Feng Xiao, even if there is not written request for leave to go out. The students will not be able to go out to celebrate Christmas, the organization also watch videos of traditional Chinese culture. In addition, also hang out on campus, but advocates Western holiday slogan.



In fact, yesterday afternoon, the Northwestern University School of the Communist Youth League in the modern official microblogging, published an article 'Do not blindly fawning, to become China good children,' the article said that many people are beginning more and more attention to Western festivals, The 'Chinese traditional culture festival implied is disappearing,' I hope you 'can not forget the fine tradition of our country.'



School Zhefan move, not only caused some students complained, also in the Internet caused intense debate, Western festivals should be such a ban it?



Also yesterday, in Changsha, Hunan, a quaint pedestrian street - the Taiping, the sudden appearance of five young people who dressed in Chinese clothes, waved banners Christmas boycott of the brand, they appeared at the time to attract a lot of passers-by onlookers. was on the scene of the China news agency reporters Yang Huafeng and You Xiangji record this scene.



(Telephone interview) China news agency reporter Yang Huafeng:



Yesterday, the streets everywhere are hanging out a few Christmas greetings, and others are made apple, and then they just placards in there, I think this picture is very shock and then a lot of people to go around, all take the phone, the camera shot Many people say this is good, it should resist foreign holiday.



Commentary:



These five individuals were from Changsha City three universities in school, their outfits, making the word board, took to the streets, a station that is nearly two hours, and the purpose is to hope that more people are concerned about Chinese traditional festivals.



(Phone interview) actors Wan prosperity:



Suddenly we felt about our traditional things increasingly being watered down, and these Exotic these festivals increasingly commercialized, so we want to advocate a return to traditional, rational holidays. We are by this 'boycott Christmas' 'Chinese people but foreign Festival' this discourse, this point of view it can be clearly thrown by holding a sign, wearing a form of Chinese clothing to express our sense of such a return to tradition.



Commentary:



Or yesterday, a Wenzhou City, Zhejiang Province Department of Education issued to the city schools, SMS notification on holding any Christmas-related activities and not in school, then in a wider range of Christmas no.



Zhong Zheng on:



The purpose of the city's primary and secondary schools can still hope for the traditional festival of the Chinese traditional festival we pay close attention, because now some foreign holidays, we are going to understand it, but not too hot. Because now some schools put it this Christmas, think of it as the whole event A festival to do, this would dilute our focus on a traditional festival.



Moderator:



We have just said there is such a Christmas holiday in the Western religious background, into China after being transformed into a young man of our own festival, festival of young people willing to cross. But as we have seen in the movies Some young people take the initiative not been, then we went to some schools to resist the young. It follows that we would ask Professor Chang, how do you think the school to keep the children, do not let young people for Christmas this move?



Zhang Yi Wu:



I think some young people themselves, he did not like about this festival, this is his personal choice is no problem. The schools do so, of course, there it promote cultural concerns of traditional festivals like this in good faith intentions, but it is not required to take this form I think it may be questionable.



Because Christmas is actually it does not mean this instance, strengthening the Western religions, actual or young people get together, the joy of gathering together and then we find a head embodied by his own pleasure, such an activity is not required With such a very strong way, out of very tight, I think it touches can questionable.



Moderator:



So the school is actually such a move also sparked some controversy some people, for example, we do this survey, said prohibition, says Christmas like this into the school campus, how do you see? We see that there are many, there are 65.9% of people choose to support, said it should be the guardian of traditional Chinese festivals, resist foreign section. And then, only 34% of people are opposed to, say because this is a personal freedom, should not interfere. That choice is supported by the vast majority of schools this practice.



Then again there is an investigation, said how Chinese people celebrate Christmas treat this phenomenon. There are more than half of people choose to be worried about, or should pay attention to promote our own culture. Less than half of the people think, no worries, because that is more a relaxing day entertainment only, how do you see? Or the overwhelming majority of people think we should boycott, boycott right?



Zhang Yi Wu:



I think this can be reflected in our society but it is still on their cultural identity has a very in-depth, is that we worry about our traditional culture, our identity, our values of Western culture by the shock, I think this is very understandable a phenomenon.



But on the other hand, I would think that this situation is now Christmas, not as we imagine, it is a very specific manifestation of Western values or Western religious culture in China. Mainly among young people gathered to take this from head then use these cultural symbols to express an active status.



So in fact, China is now the festival, we also have a lot of traditional festivals to the world, with many of this number of Chinese immigrants in the world, and as we grow the influence of culture, such as it is now our New Year, In many countries, now has become a very active and fun holiday. It will borrow some of the symbols of the Spring Festival, but that does not mean that a lot of people on the Chinese traditional culture has a very deep understanding.



So I think the holidays this matter, on the one hand we certainly want to advocate the significance of traditional culture and tradition of the festival, to allow more people to understand the Chinese traditional festivals, to our own lives this high value, but on the other hand, I think on this matter over the foreign section, you may also need not be too nervous. Of course, we can be more to publicize our traditional festivals, traditional culture, but on the other hand, I think the foreign section had to keep an open and tolerant attitude, because the Chinese people He is very good at something alien cultures into their own internal stuff.



Moderator:



Well, yesterday, on the same >> << Global Times There is a saying that is very accurate, it says that for young people, in fact they are there at Christmas Valentine's Day, they are not Chinese festivals in both sections, because young people them as their own section too, no need to go back and look at the old man, and do not fulfill the obligations of family reunion. This is another say? young love Christmas is a subconscious, is relaxed and cut off this pressure a subconscious release.



So good, in fact, the popular foreign holiday reflects some of the shortcomings of the traditional culture of our country, so it's popular description of some of the needs of young people are not being met, then how should we go next response? How to do?



Commentary:



'Quick Change Password', this afternoon, the major portals reproduced in 12306's official website confirmed that a large number of user information leaked the news to some of the Spring Festival ticket home to grab people who have added a lot of blocking.

Commentary:



Readers Changsha high Asian entitled 'Family is more precious than the face' of the letter, is today's Daily >> << Selected. He said in the letter, in this rush era, the problems encountered by young people in addition to the work The hardship, including blank emotional, mental confusion and other aspects, 'This is what we must work together to face this era of' pain points. 'era of pain depends on reform, development to relieve, but also need young people themselves Find pressure outlet. '



Moderator:



We say that a lot of young people just getting to like the Western section, but we can see through the survey, compared with 2 percent liked the Western section of the vast majority of nearly 7 percent of the people are still willing to Spring Festival.



But we also see that with this freedom we have just seen in movies of young, happy, romantic compared to mention the Spring Festival, more people may choose a, think this is a very tired even the Chinese New Year has become a kind of catastrophe robbery. then compared under two, how to improve the traditional charm of its own local festivals, this problem does not know how you look at Professor Zhang?



Zhang Yi Wu:



I think this is very important, is our traditional festival which is mainly family gatherings, the lack of interaction between young people, communication, or relax this space. So I think in the future we carry forward the traditional aspects of the festival, should be more emphasis on the younger one can adequately party, relax, and not let him gather every day in the family inside the home side, hoping to meet some of the festival.



For instance, we like Tanabata festival, in fact, there is Chinese Valentine's Day this means that now even though you say this is not a Valentine's Day tradition, but in fact it's legends, it's fun, in fact, you can put it become a gathering of young people come together to resolve anxiety, a very interesting holiday stress. If so, our holiday, in fact, should have a more traditional holiday fun colors, but also has some gorgeous rich culture symbol, then the traditional Chinese symbol of these classics, popular with young people creatively transformed into a symbol of fashion, in fact, to promote our culture is very helpful.



Moderator:



Well, thank you very much, Professor Zhang. In fact, very simple, and its better to resist innovation, so our holiday times.
