The Popularity of Western Festivals
With the approaching of Valentine’s Day, countless of supermarkets, flower shops, and streets are decorated with roses and posters. People are busy buying and sending gifts to their lovers. Not only is the valentine’s day very popular, but also many of the other western festivals are flooding into china for the moment. Why do the western festivals attract more and more Chinese? As far as I am concerned, the reasons are as follows.
To begin with, the ignorance of our traditional Chinese culture, no doubt, is one of the most essential aspects towards this issue. They pay more and more attention to the foreign festivals rather than our own. What’s more, businessmen are eager to seize every possible opportunity to advertise for their products in order to gain more profits. Besides, with the deeper implement of the reform and opening-up policy in china, we tend to absorb some more advanced and novel culture from the outside world.
In conclusion, the popularity of western festivals is an inevitable trend following the globalization. What we should do now is to inherit and develop our traditional culture as well as bring in all the advanced and beneficial culture achievement
