Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays

I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a great holiday season. I hope you have a good, festive time with family, friends, and have lots of things to be thankful for. It may have a tough year for some of us, but thankfully it’s coming to a close.
Meanwhile, enjoy these photos of a couple of great mall Christmas decorations from a recent trip I made to Canada and Trinidad and Tobago. The towering Christmas tree in Toronto’s Eaton Centre was so nice I had to post it twice. Actually I’ve never seen such a big Christmas tree before (its base is in the basement, which is two floors below where I’m taking it) and it was so tall it was almost scary. The other Christmas decoration is in Long Circular mall in Trinidad, the country where I’m from.

  1. Merry Christmas!

    Did you know this year in China, some local governments told people not to celebrate Christmas too much because it’s a foreign holiday and Chinese people should give more importance to Chinese holidays? Like, for example, Mao Zedong’s birthday, which is December 26th.

    There were even some wechat posts saying “after all Jesus didn’t do much for Chinese people” xD


    1. I’ve seen several articles about different announcements from Chinese authorities warning about Christmas. Seems ridiculous and stupid, but China is really going through an anti-West, nationalist phase. I didn’t know Dec 26 was Mao’s birthday; that’s why I saw someone put up a poster about Mao on wechat for Christmas.
