The Prevalence of Western Holidays

It is noticeable that western holidays arebecoming increasingly popular day by day, whileChinese traditional holidays are being somewhatneglected. Old people often complain that ChineseNew Year has lost its real meaning. To theirastonishment, young people in China who areignorant about Chinese traditional holidays are crazy about Christmas or Valentine’s Day.

There are several possible reasons for this phenomenon. First, western nations, such asthe United States and Britain, are powerful and dominant in every aspect. Everything in thesecountries is assumed to be superior and adored by some modern young people. Second, theprevalenceof English as a world language and the development of globalization enable westernculture to prevail in China. Overwhelmed by such a trend, Chinese unconsciously get involvedin western culture. Last but not least, some Chinese people have blind faith in foreign thingswhile miss our own possessions with contempt.

I am critical of this trend. China boasts a brilliant history and splendid traditions. Inmodern times, Chinese tradition should be preserved and promoted. But it seems that youngpeople no longer treasure the traditions. On the contrary, they turn to pursueenthusiastically a supposedly more modern culture. If this trend is allowed to continue, thepriceless heritage of our ancestors will be replaced by western traditions. Nobody expects sucha consequence. So let’s join hand in hand to protect Chinese tradition, especially traditionalholidays.
