Merry Christmas [transliteration: shèng dàn kuài lè] from Nanning, Guangxi Province, China.

From Helen:

This is in Nanning, Guangxi Province, Wm. Yes, I took it yesterday evening (my time) as I was coming from the local Walmart which is chockfull of Christmas cheer.

Everywhere you go, Wm., you can hear religious Christmas carols and see signs saying ‘Merry Christmas!’

In a country with an atheist government, the people are largely Buddhist or worshippers of Guanyin, Chinese and other Christians are not plagued at Christmas as they are back home.

This does not mean there is religious liberty. It just means the government hasn’t cracked down. Yet.
