Isolated event. Different voices in China. Don't dramatize. Promoting one nation's own culture is the responsibility of public authorities. those who believe in Christianity can continue to celebrate Christmas but let the public schools systematically organize celebrating events to celebrate Christmas is a different story. no public school in Western countries would do the same for Buddha's birthday, especially at a large scale. Preserving cultural differences will make this planet more colorful. I would hate too see Christmas traditions disappear in Western countries as much as I would hate to see Chinese traditional festivals disappear in this country.

Well they don't believe in fairy tales, so who can blame them.

I for one welcome the ban.

fairy tales are important in any human culture, nobody need to believe it, tales are not to be believed, but to provide dream to children, to make lie somtehing colorfull, happy, and it also meaning about society values. A good example: take a look of architecture of cities like pyonyang where fairy tales are also banned, and take a look of cities like Venisia or Paris. it's exactly the same problem.

I cnnot accept that beijing clique take peopel for dumb and ban a festival for its excess. any festival has excess, but it's up to anyone to make this festival meaningfull and not commercial.

With such poor logic, Chinese new year is also ultra commercial.
