Maybe a white Christmas will be better than a green one. This year the Christmas was not cold and of course no snow. But there was a huge Christmas tree about 25 meters with lots of lights and presents. It was not a real one, just on a movice which shown on the top of a building.

In the street, there were many people selling apples. Everybody were very happy and enjoy their Christmas day.

About 2 days before Chirstmas Eve, that was the very important day of our Suzhou People, called Dongzhi Night, a very traditonal day. Dongzhi Night is the same as the New Year's day, we started a new year from that day long long ago. So it has a very long history. Traditonal day and foreign days are all important to us, nowaday Suzhou will be a internatinal city. We will follow the step of the world.
