Merry X'mas and Happy New Year

We, Mr China, wish all our readers a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Although this greeting is written in 2010, obviously we hope it can also be presented as CHRISTMAS GIFT TO YOU FOR EVERY YEAR in the future!

Relax and go shopping for Christmas through these external links:

which can provide wonderful shopping experience even for non-Christmas days!

This year has been full of challenges for investors, and we expect next year will be a even more challenging year.

It is generally believed that in the next year the Chinese economy will continue to face challenges brought by rising domestic inflationary pressure, uncertainties in the external environment, threat of European sovereign debt crisis, as well as the slowing down in economies of developed countries.

Good luck!

Although Christmas in China is not as popular as in the western world (it is now becoming much popular than before), and the western new year is just not as important as lunar new year in China, Christmas and the western new year surely are still a symbol of happiness that should be worth celebrating.

If you toured around a major Chinese city many years ago in the 1990's, you probably would not have seen many signs of Christmas there. It is simply due to the fact that Christmas is a Christian holiday and the vast majority of the Chinese people are not Christian. However, as more and more Chinese businessmen have discovered the business opportunities in celebrating Christmas, the commercial aspect of the Christmas holiday is now spreading inside China. Hence if you were to visit the same Chinese city today, you would see signs of Christmas displays in many urban areas in the city.

Christmas celebrations you are likely to see in these urban areas are mainly artificial Christmas trees, lightings, and other decorations in large department stores or on the main streets. Quite a few Chinese people, who are more western style, may also decorate Christmas trees, or Trees of Light, with paper chains, paper lanterns and paper flowers in their own homes.

Since the Christmas is only becoming more commercially important, not culturally important in China, the Chinese New Year Holiday (also called the Spring Festival) is still the foremost winter event in Chinese traditional culture. Remember Christmas is not yet a public holiday in the mainland China and most Chinese people still need to stay working in offices or factories during the period.

Taking this opportunity, we encourage any of you to think more about poor people in China who are less fortunate and desperately in need.

To take and also to give, please kindly make a secure donation through this donation page if you did get a positive earning result in your investment profile this year.

For the year to come, we will continue to provide independent and high quality contents about the real Chinese economy for all of you.
