For whatever reason, Christmas is a very well accepted and extremely popular western holiday in China. It’s safe to say that there are more Chinese who celebrate Christmas than who know Jesus. “Merry Christmas” can be seen everywhere, from store windows to social media, around this time of year. Yet in this little “Christmas village” with more than 600 ornament factories where about 60% of the world’s Christmas ornaments are produced, there is neither Santa, nor flying reindeer, only red “snow”.
