外文标题：Christmas banned by Chinese university, says it is "kitsch"
BEIJING: A university in northwestern China has banned Christmas, calling it a "kitsch" foreign celebration unbefitting of the country's own traditions and making its students watch propaganda films instead, media said on Thursday.
The state-run Beijing News said that the Modern College of Northwest University, located in Xian, had strung up banners around the campus reading "Strive to be outstanding sons and daughters of China, oppose kitsch Western holidays" and "Resist the expansion of Western culture".
A student told the newspaper that they would be punished if they did not attend a mandatory three-hour screening of propaganda films, which other students said included one about Confucius, with teachers standing guard to stop people leaving.
"There's nothing we can do about it, we can't escape," the student was quoted as saying.
Feels so nice that Chinese authorities are so much like our leaders. They also banned X'Mas; we also almost did that except those funny people who wants to have holidays in the name of X'Mas succeeded in making it non-mandatory. It Sucks.. nahh? Our bajrangi-walahs must be prasing the Chinese. Do you want to be a Chinese?
