Officials in at least two Chinese provinces banned Christmas decorations and celebrations last year. Police officials in Kunming, a university town and the capital of Yunnan province, prohibited hotels, karaoke establishments, internet cafes, bars and other venues from displaying Christmas decorations, organizing Christmas events or allowing employees to wear Christmas-related clothing, such as Santa hats. Government officials In Hebei province also prohibited decorations and prohibited the sale of Christmas stockings or Santa figurines. Some Hebei schools prevented students from gathering on Christmas Eve. Pray for Christians in China, as the government continues to restrict religious practice.
