Festivals of Lifechanyuan

First, we don't oppose people to celebrate festivals they love, that are their freedom and choice.

Festival has eight implications: congratulation and celebration, reunion, praying for good fortune, gratitude, offering sacrifice and holding memorial ceremony, praising, purifying and gathering people's hearts and keeping going.

Festival has eight major forms: natural festival, religious festival, state festival, political party's festival, cultural festival, group festival, custom festival and special festival.

Lifechanyuan reveres to the Greatest Creator, life and nature, and follows the way of the Greatest Creator; so Lifechanyuan does not celebrate the following festivals.

1 Religious festival

Such as Christmas Day, Easter Day, Phi Ta Khon Festival (Buddha's Birth Day), The Ghost Festival, Ramadan, Corban Festival, festival of pure man of Taoism.

2 Festivals of a country or state

Such as National Day, Independence Day, Republic Day, Union Day, Revolutionary Festival.

3 Political party's festival

Such as Party Founding Day, Army Day.

4 Festivals of a certain person

5 Festivals praising of some people or possessing petty bourgeois sentiment

Such as Nurses' Day, Women's day, Mother's Day, Valentine's Day, April Fools' Day, Youth Day, Teacher's Day, Children's Day, Journalist's Day.

6 Farfetched festivals
