Before leaving for China I knew that I’d be missing out on my favourite holiday of the year, Christmas. Christmas in China is not a public holiday due to the fact that there are very few Christians in China. To many Chinese people, Christmas is still a unfamiliar celebration which is why I had a hard time finding a Christmas tree in our popular Chinese department stores.
My friends Faythe and Howard from California informed me that they were able to find a Christmas tree in our Walmart located near Central Street. After our trip to the huge shoe market in Harbin we made our way over to Walmart and lo and behold there was an entire section dedicated to Christmas.
See how I manage to put together my very first Chinese Christmas tree in the video above!
Stay Restless my friends!
