Christmas is not a public holiday in China, even during the Chinese New Year, the malls are still opened in Shenzhen...

Be careful! Americans don't like the notion of Christmas being celebrated in China without embracing Jesus Christ first.

Did I say anything was wrong with it? I personally don't care. I just stated that there are those in the US that will take offense with it. There was a toy figurine in the US of a comic book character who was standing on top on the head of a Buddha statue. The company who made it was flooded with complaints saying it was an offense to Buddhism. The Chinese commercialism of Christmas is already rubbing Americans the wrong way same as the use of Buddha in a toy was offensive. Unless you're going to convert to Christianity, then prepare for a boiling anger from Christians.

Well, I'm an atheist and I don't really care of religion actually... so I'm really far to be a traditionalist. However, christmas has still a meaning for me : it's a family celebration. It's about being happy to be together... it's not simply an opportunity for gifts...

The more fundamentalist Christians would take offense. Otherwise, Christmas has already become a consumer-oriented festival in most of the world.
