Christmas V.S Constitution Day by HowXu Christmas V.S Constitution Day by HowXu
Note: The words of the book Trixie holding is "憲法(Constitution)"

12/25 is Christmas for Western world. Coincidentally, 12/25 is also the Constitution Day of Taiwan in the memory of executing constitution in 1947. But to tell the truth, there is almost no celebration for Constitution Day since we don't have any tradition or activity for that day. Even raising the flag in front of their house which some people may do in the past is very rare nowadays. On the contrary, most people in Taiwan celebrate Christmas like western people do. Well, I guess that's OK since the financial interest behind Christmas is far greater than Constitution Day. More importantly, the spirit of Constitution has already planted its roots through education.

I know its a little late to post this but I really want to post something considering I'm so unproductive this semester.^^;

Oh, one more thing. I have a declaration to make. The composition of this work is not original. I referenced a very old illustration ( I saw it in my junior high) which I can't find it on Internet. In the original picture, there's 2 men, one dressed like Santa and held a present; the other dressed Chinese clothes and held constitution book. I just used its concept and substituted the characters with ponies. :D

My bad, I have no idea why I occidentally mixed the names, or maybe there was a reason I do not know about, no idea.

That present was probably a book anyways, lol. So they're probably both holding books in the end. xD
