News for December 13

by Lancer Media

Today for the twelve days of Christmas, let’s see how they celebrate in China.

Christmas in China is a day to celebrate friends and family by leaving the house to have a good time. Some people even treat it like a romantic holiday, similar to Valentine’s Day. China also practices the unique tradition of giving apples for Christmas Eve because of the similarities between the word for “apple” and “Christmas Eve” in Mandarin.
