CPPCC member Zhu Jun proposes a ban on the Western festival celebrations in kindergartens and schools. In China, celebrating Western festivals like Halloween and Christmas has become popular events in many kindergartens. Many worry that children will be attached more to Western fesivals than traditional Chinese ones. Should kindergarteners be forbidden to celebrate Western festivals? Does celebrations mean a denial of our own culture?

Just like in Judaism, Halloween should not be permitted in China.
Most Hindus do not observe All Hallows' Eve either.

Most Christians figure Halloween incompatible with the Christian faith due to its putative origins in the Festival of the Dead celebration.

Young people in China should be spared such haunted attractions to make money on Children.

One of the problems xmas creates is more greed!!! kids will get attached to it, and parents will be forced to find more money for gifts to give to their little emperors!!
if you want something in life get off your backside, and do it yourself!! don't rely on others to do it for you

True,
but this is not the kids fault, but bad parenting and our endless advertising.
I need to pay for my monthly web/tv link, but still getting hammered with ads.
  How manipulative ads works and the negative consequences, most of us grownups don't even realize.

How should kids manage this evil.
After all, advertising is for the Rich. The kids are ONLY the tools.

Perhaps, it should be the schools themselves that must look into this. Private schools with Christainity may want to do so. Some make their students to say grace.

China Education Ministry must look into this matter. Laws and policies must be passed to be implemented to stop all these activities. At least, it will not be practised and turned into an opportunity for making money.
No harm is done if one does not celebrate any western or eastern festivals but if one does not gain the basic skills in school that is taught!
