Christmas in China is a very low key holiday, if a holiday at all. While I’ve seen many beautifully decorated Christmas lights and trees around the city in Malls and Hotels, the average Chinese restaurant or place does not care that it is Christmas. The main reason for this is because the government does not support time off for this holiday, as many people in China are not Christian. Therefore, Christmas Day is a regular day here in China, no different than any other day. While foreigners celebrate the holiday with friends, many Chinese people do not celebrate it at all usually. I luckily had the day off of work and celebrated with some friends! Overall, it was a fun day, but nothing like Christmas in the West.
