Q: what do I do now for Christmas?

https://www.yahoo.com/news/m/918c2257-b80b-3f9f-9a89-30106dd4c22c/ss_communist-students-in-china.html

 

For the international department we have a big party every year, now, not sure

 

Should i pack up the Santa suit I have worn for the last 5 years and we have the songs to sing and a play of Mr. Scrooge.

 

This is really getting ridiculous, perhaps if we continue our tradition for another year, I may become a mandatory organ donor.

regardless of what employers or schools want to do - i loathed Christmas in China - grab a few mates and book a private table.

Celebrate the lengthening days and toast the people who matter to you the most in China.

Gather family around you (if you can) and tell them why they are special.

 

Ignore the superficial, go for the heart.

 

Happy Christmas all

When I was asked in China, if I want Christmas free-of-work day, I always replied:

 

'When I am living and working in China, I celebrate and have free days at all Chinese holidays!'

 

It was high-level of (my) diplomacy answer!

 

But, in real I think, if I would require any western holidays free of work day in China, I should also ask to work during Chinese National holidays.

 

BuTT ...., I always lay in my bed with pay for 7 days in October.

 

So, just think your Santa is a bit rusty in China ... You rusty!

Hold me in your arms and dance all night.

I know you can't. So, hold me in your heart and walk gracefully and see if you can feel my presence there. If you can, then listen to these melodies and the memories will return and there in, you will feel everything beautiful and whom so ever you want close by at that time. Enjoy the holidays and the music that you always wanted to hear within these melodies. Well played, orchestrated and rendered just for your listening pleasure.

 

A very Merry Christmas.and another Great Christmas to all of you.

 

Freddie Freeman.

What a relief!   As a member of the Jewish faith, being expected to do stupid shit for Christmas every year, like dressing as santa/playing Christmas music/having Christmas parties, gets annoying. I always refuse.

It seems I was right again, I told the school that the CCP would not let them have a Christmas celebration and at the last minute they changed the theme to a New years party with no solo performances, only groups.

 

Yes screw Christmas and individuality, long live the ccp and the collective. like a broken record or a broken clock that is right twice a day.

A:If he did contact the embassy they would tell him to engage a lawyer. They at least might be able to point him towards a somewhat decent lawyer, I don't think they'd be of much help aside from that though. I doubt the lawyer would be able to do much other than help negotiate the compensation he will need to pay.   -- Stiggs
