Huge Christmas celebrations in Asia
'Tis the season to be jolly!
Though the annual festival started off as a religious and cultural celebration among Christians, it has now turned into an event to spread joy and happiness for all, and the time for people to exchange gifts!
Like every other traditional holiday, Christmas is a warm event for family and friends to gather and bond over, and the event has now become a norm even among Asians – regardless if you’re a Christian or not!
With the modernisation of Christmas, the festivity has become a huge deal in the Eastern part of the world as well, and some countries even hold annual parties and events to celebrate the much-awaited holiday!
