China has some Christians, but as a whole, the religiosity of the people is lacking. Thus, Christmas time here is sourly lacking. Sure they play all the music and smile and say “Hey Merry Christmas!!” But you know they don’t get it.
In a country that has never had a real indigenous (yes they even had to steal that), it is hard to take them seriously when they try to relate to traditions from the west.

Also, in China, during the Christmas season it is next to impossible to see a foreign film at the theaters. I have no idea why this is, for all Chinese and foreigners alike know that local cinema and flicks suck.
