TAIWAN

Christmas is celebrated more widely in Taiwan than in mainland China. Although not many people in Taiwan are Christians (about 5%), many stores will sell Christmas related items at Christmas time. It’s also not a national holiday in Taiwan. Even so, most children know about Santa Claus and might even know a Christmas song or two! Parents of children at popular English schools expect a full Christmas festival, complete with gift exchanges, singing, and of course, a visit to the school from Santa. Many schools will perform a kind of Christmas a pageant or play with sugar plum fairies, reindeer, snowflakes, elves and other Christmas characters singing on stage for parents.
People also like to wear Santa hats around Christmas time. Many store owners will wear the hats as well. Christmas cakes, a tradition more from Japan, is something that is slightly popular in Taiwan.
