What Japan does for Christmas
In Japan Christmas Isn't as popular as it is in America. Japan also doesn't really celebrated Christmas religiously. In Japan they exchange gifts and cards like we do.Most Christmas party's take place the night before Christmas. It is also really popular to decorate a Christmas tree with lights ,paper ornaments, and small toys .It is also really popular to decorate the outside of the houses.
What is the true meaning of Christmas?
Like I said before Japan doesn't really celebrate Christmas religiously in fact only about 1/2 of 1% of the Japanese population is Christian. Christmas is a day to spread happiness in Japan
