 China

Fun fact: In China, it is considered distasteful to eat every bite of food on your plate. That is taken as a signal to the chef that they didn't give you enough to eat.

Chinese eat Yi Mein "longevity noodles" on their birthday.

Gifts of watches or clocks are considered bad luck.

China’s small population of Christians call Christmas Sheng Dan Jieh, or Holy Birth Festival. They decorate their homes with evergreen plants, posters, bright paper chains, and a Christmas tree, which they call a Tree of Light, adorned with paper lanterns, flowers, and red paper chains that symbolize happiness. They cut out red pagodas to paste on their windows and light their houses with paper lanterns. In China, Santa Claus is known as Sheng Dan Lao Ren, Old Christmas Man, or Lan Khoong-Khoong, Nice Old Father. On Christmas Eve, children hang up their muslin stockings so Santa can fill them with gifts. worldholidaytraditions.com
