Christmas around the world

Christmas looks so different in the other corners of the world. Take a look at these pictures and see exactly what we mean.

Every Christmas, the European cities are lit up by thousands of lights. The air is filled by the cinnamon flavour, by the smell of mulled wine and freshly baked goods. The annual markets and the huge Christmas trees are present every year, getting you in the perfect mood for holidays.

Christianity isn't really spread around Asia, therefore Christmas isn't either. And that's a bit ironic, considering that most of the Christmas gifts come from China. However, due to tourism and worldwide influences, Christmas is somehow celebrated in the most important Asian towns, by decorating them with specific ornaments. One exception to this rule is the Philippines , where Christmas is taken more seriously than anywhere else in the world. They start celebrating early, in September and they keep on going until January.

Pine trees are not really common in Africa, so people there decorate other trees, like the Baobab.
