Day 2: Christmas Around The World – China
- Christmas = Shang Dan Jiang
- In China, they use bright coloured paper lanterns to decorate houses for Christmas. They put candles inside and the light shines brightly through the coloured paper.
- Chinese children hang up stockings in the hope that Sheng Dan Lao Ren will visit them and fill them with presents. Who do you think Sheng Dan Lao Ren is?
- Christmas Day is not a public holiday in China like it is here. People go to work and children go to school. This is because China is mainly a Buddhist country. Their biggest celebration is Chinese New Year which usually falls sometime in January or February.
