Thanks to Western influence, in recent years, Christmas is becoming more and more popular in China. For now in the Mainland it is celebrated with interest in large cities where a large number of expats live, and Western traditions are widely spread.
Christmas is not a public holiday in China because most Chinese people are not Christian, so most offices, schools and shops remain open. Though it is a public holiday in Macau and Hong Kong.
Also on December 22nd Chinese people have a feast day, dedicated to winter solstice day, which is usually celebrated with family gatherings, sometimes also called “Chinese Thanksgiving”.
New Year’s Day, January 1st, is the official public holiday in China.
As ODM Group is an international multicultural corporation, our Zhuhai office will be shut on December 25th and January 1st, and for the 22nd and 31st of December the office will be finishing work at 4.30 Hong Kong time.
