    I was in Xiamen in early December a few years ago. i was surprised to see so many Christmas decorations and “Merry Christmas” signs everywhere.
    Here in my big Canadian city, not that many decorations around stores and office buildings. Instead of ” Merry Christmas”, we have ” Seasons Greetings” signs. sometimes, i really feel PC has gone haywire in this part of the world.
    BTW. i am not a christian, but respect the religion.

    That’s such a heartwarming story. The guide to the birds of China is the kind of thoughtful gift that can only be given by someone who knew you well and cared to make the effort to give you a gift you would love. But the hand-drawn comics were even better. I can see why they would bring a tear to your eye. Merry Christmas, Jocelyn.
