Do Chinese Women Celebrate Christmas?

Christmas Day is widely celebrated by Christians as a festival to commemorate the birth of Jesus.

But nowadays, people from all over the world, religious or not, also participate in these festive celebrations. Although, they don’t practice it the same way that most Christians do.

In China, for example, Christmas isn’t considered a regular holiday by Chinese people. Much like Valentine’s Day, Christmas is seen by locals as a commercial holiday. Hence, you wouldn’t be seeing anyone in provincial areas celebrating this advent at all. For them, it’s just another day in the winter.

Major cities, however, heavily advertise this holiday as a way of maximizing consumer consumption. Not surprisingly enough, it does pique the interests of many. It gives many people a reason to look forward to the holidays.

Many business owners take advantage of this holiday to clear out their warehouses for a fresh new year start.

Christmas isn’t a holiday that you spend with your family. They don’t have dinners or Secret Santas. Instead, they see this day as a holiday that you spend with a lover or with friends. It’s a great contrast to many Catholic households, where Christmas is celebrated with family.

Chinese women, in particular, are eager whenever the Christmas season is right around the corner. To them, Christmas is an occasion that calls for grand surprises and majestic dates.

But how exactly do you spend Christmas with a pretty Chinese woman?

The Chinese Way of Celebrating Christmas

What do the Chinese do for Christmas?

Though Chinese people don’t celebrate Christmas for religious purposes, you can still see a few Christmas elements integrated by some in their own unique way of celebrating the holiday.

Santa Claus, the ever-favorite face of the Christmas season, can still be seen in decorations in popular shops or restaurants. Though, he is known very differently among the children. In their eyes, he is “Shen Dan Lao Ren,” which means Old Christmas Man.

Shen Dan Lao Ren’s story is a bit different from your usual jolly old St. Nicholas. Instead of having elves as helpers, Santa has sisters. He also lives in the Arctic Christmas Village in China’s very own North Pole.

One unique trait that sets Shen Dan Lao Ren from Santa Claus is that he is always seen carrying a saxophone, a french horn, or a trumpet. No one knows exactly how this came to be, but it has been a quintessential part of him.

Much like in Europe and America, they also have set-ups where you can take pictures with Santa. They’re often stationed in areas where Christmas trees are displayed.

It’s quite rare to see a Christmas tree anywhere besides the mall. They’re not an essential item to have in Chinese households during Christmas. In fact, they rarely decorate their homes for the advent.

For the rare few that do put up decorations, they decorate their synthetic Christmas trees with paper chains and paper flowers. Red pagodas are pasted on their windows, and paper lanterns are hung everywhere. Children also hang up stockings for their parents to fill gifts with. Although, much like the Christmas tree, this isn’t observed by many.

One Christmas tradition that sets China apart is the tradition of giving apples as gifts. Funnily enough, this tradition started from a pun. Chinese New Year’s Eve is known as Ping’an Ye, which means peaceful or quiet evening. In Mandarin, the word for apple, pingguo, is pronounced similarly to the word peace.
