Since the implement of the policy of reform and open in 1978, in China, people are influenced by the foreign culture and convention. The most obvious thing is that people use foreign products and the foreign festivals are becoming more and more popular. The growing popularity of western festivals inChinais a good phenomenon.
On the one hand, the growing popularity of western festivals promotes cultural exchanges between countries. There are 56 unique ethnic groups in our country, it has profound cultures, we can’t know well about our culture, let alone the foreign counties. While the policy of reform and open helps we know more about the world, we start to learn their culture by their festivals.
On the other hand, when we admit foreign festivals, we treat the festivals as our necessary days, so we will spend the days, buying presents, thus, it will promote our country’s economy. Today, most people get used to the Christmas Day in China, people buy a lot of discount products, just like Spring Festival, they are attracted the holiday themes.
Some people worry about the foreign festivals will let us forget about our own traditional festivals. On the contrary, it enhances our sense of convention, people will realize the importance of our culture. For these reasons, the foreign festivals are welcomed.
