nese Christmas celebrations is the
"Street Children's Day" carried on by:
the Christian schools. On that day
each school undertakes to give all the
poor children of an assigned district
a basket of fruit, gum, soap, etc. The
street children gather for about two
hours in the school building to be en-
tertained by Christmas carols, and
poems which ghave been translated
from the. English and learned by the~
more intelligent pupils. In this way
many children are influenced to attend
Non-christian as well as Christian
pupils exchange gifts but the latter
give much -less expensive ones in
order to have bnough money left over
for the poor.
Christmas trees, Santa Claus, and the
hanging up of stockings are as much
in evidence in Chinese Christian
homes as they are here.
New Year Unique Event
The Chinese New' Year is most
unique. On that day - every child is
supposed to receive an entire new
wardrobe. In the morning right after
breakfast, the children, dressed in
their new clothes, go before their par-
ents and receive a piece-of money, us-
ually equal to about one dollar, wrap-
ped in red paper. Then the children1
bow in acknowledgment of the par-
ents' gifts. The breakfast part is very1
important, for if a child goes with-
out it he will have bad luck through
the entire year.
- Parades are given by the poorer
class and the rich are supposed to
be lenient and generous in their re-
sponse. The rest of the day is spent.
in visiting relatives and friends, or in
enjoying music at home.
