And the Very First Song That the Radio Sang Was, "I Won't Be Home No More"

Via Edmundson, here's a story about some philosophy grad students in China trying to get people not to celebrate Christmas so much, since they've got worries about Western cultural imperialism. They've got a petition and everything.

This is sort of funny, because here in the US the APA forces grad students on the market not to celebrate Christmas so much. The APA puts the big job market conference right in between Christmas and New Year's, to make sure you don't get carried away and spend too much time enjoying the company of friends and loved ones.

Maybe those Chinese grad students should just come here?
