Do Chinese celebrate Halloween?
Of course not. That would be an American asking. The question is as silly as “Do American’s celebrate Spring Festival?” Of course not. Must be a Chinese asking.
But there are thousands of Chinese in the West who celebrate Spring Festival and there are thousands of Americans in China who celebrate Halloween. Especially those with children.
This week we’re trying to use our imagination to think of funny or interesting costumes for people to wear that are inspired by China. Perhaps you can write your own ideas of Halloween costumes! The sky is the limit.
Also don’t forget if you have lived in China and you’ve had funny stories about Halloween in China please go here and send us the stories. We’ll try and make them into funny cartoons.
The China Daily a couple years ago talked about how popular Halloween is in China. They make most of the stuff for Halloween in China anyway…just like Christmas! So naturally Halloween will become more and more popular here in China.
And if you are really interested you can find Halloween costumes all made in China. Feels like I’m looking at an American catalog… THis link is from CHINA SUPPLIERS supplying the world with stuff made in China!
I’ve been in China for a couple years now teaching English. For two of those years I was at a University here in Shanghai. In 2004 I was an accident victim. You can read and see how I dressed up and what we did. In 2005 I was a chef. You can also read and see what we did and how I dressed up.
So let me be the first to say… HAPPY HALLOWEEN! From CHina!
