Incredible China – example 18: Christmas spirit is booming here!


Year’s end celebrations are around the corner; Beijing made this year a great effort to develop the Christmas spirit or 圣诞节 (Shèngdàn jié) in Chinese.

This is impressive to see the gap between this year and last year celebrations. It was really difficult to find a Christmas tree or some Christmas lights in 2011.

This year, all major shopping areas (Sanlitun Village, Phoenix Gallery…) and offices installed everywhere big Christmas trees and lights. The shopping markets also sell lights and small trees to decorate homes.

The locals start to be concerned by Christmas spirit. Several colleagues plan to give some gifts to their kids on Christmas’ eve.

Is this a new key festival in the long list of Chinese festivals? I think so… :)

Merry Christmas! 圣诞节快乐!
