Nowadays more and more people are interested in the traditional Chinese culture. In recent years, more and more people wear Hanfu—the traditional clothing of Han Chinese, which reflects the increasing popularity of traditional Chinese culture. The reasons behind this phenomenon are well worth exploring.
On the national level, traditional culture is essential for realizing the Chinese Dream. It is stressed many times that the Chinese nation will not be able to rejuvenate itself without a rich and prosperous culture and strong cultural confidence. On the individual level, knowing more about traditional culture will help the youth today cultivate patriotism. With the large influx of Western cultures and values, some young people believe that traditional Chinese culture is inferior. This kind of thought is detrimental to the development of our country. Therefore, it is important to spread and advocate traditional culture.
It can't be denied that good and bad values coexist in traditional Chinese culture. Thus, we should reject the dross and assimilate the essence. Only in this way can we learn from the past and build a better future.
