Christmas In China

Even in Communist China, Christmas is becoming an increasingly important holiday. The Chinese even have their own Santa Claus, Dun Che Lao Ren(Christmas Old Man) who brings gifts. And many Chinese decorate their homes with bright lights and paper lanterns. On one of the official Chinese news websites, XINHUA, there are plenty of Christmas good wishes and cheer were to be found.

The Christmas Old Man brings gifts for children who are the main focus of this holiday for increasing numbers of Chinese citizens. And increasingly, stores and employees in China show signs of the Christmas holiday as well.
