I don't ever know about Christmas celebration. And what people do in their Christmas party? People are busy with a new Christmass tree. They put holly, tinsel, cracker. They make pudding cake, mince pie to welcome a new year. The childen are eager to wait for a present of Santa and play snowman outside. Santa wears a red clothes, sitting on the sleigh, with 4 reindeers. He put a present into a stocking for kids.

I live in Ukraine and people usually celebrate Christmas there, however we have it on January 7. According to Gregorian calendar, Orthodox Christians. My family used to celebrate both on December 25 and January 7, because my grandfather was Catholic. Now, that I've been in China for 8 months (and it is my second time, first being 4 months) I noticed that they celebrate Mid-Autumn festival in September-October and know that they celebrate Mid-Spring festival in February. This is also the time when they have New Year. These are main holidays. Mostly it is accompanied by meeting with family, eating moon-cakes and firing lots of fireworks. They also celebrate Christmas, but not as loud as we do. There are no Christmas carols from house to house and it's hard to find Santa and of course no presents in stockings or under the Christmas tree, but there are many in hands. No day off on Christmas as well. They will have 3 days off on New Year's eve this year, though, from 30 December to 2 January.
