Kiddo didn't want to see Santa this year, but we did see this guy parading around in one of the malls, Indigo, as Santa for a train ride. I think he's wearing the beard wrong but none of the kids seemed to notice. :)
Beijing has a lot of decorations and music for Christmas. While most people in Beijing don't identify as Christian, they seem to enjoy celebrating the materialistic part of the holiday versus the religious side. I see lots of Christmas decorations in our neighborhood. Not sure if the Chinese actually give gifts or just enjoy the decorating and music.
