Wonderful, weird and wacky Christmas trees in China
With only days until Christmas, Chinese cities are smartening themselves up for the year-end celebration.
Chinese people don’t celebrate the festival for religious purpose; it’s simply a chance for the younger generation to shop and party till they drop.
Rather than a family reunion, the occasion's turned into a second Valentine’s Day. Come Christmas Eve, the streets are filled with loving couples, sometimes clutching a teddy bear-themed bunch of flowers.
Never underestimate the power of Christmas in Chinese metropolises. Nothing showcases the country’s passion better than the wonderful, weird and wacky decor in and around Chinese shopping malls.
