There's plenty of Christmas in China so if you find yourself traveling here over the holidays, you'll be able to find a lot of the pageantry around Christmas, though the religious aspects are largely missing. A commercial celebration in China, you'll find hotels and shopping malls decked with trees and lights. Traditions from all over the world are represented in different hotels so you'll be able to drink eggnog and gluewein, find gingerbread men and lebkuchen.
