December is here and with it, holiday celebrations around the world. In China, familiar Christmas traditions and decorations abound. While we commonly associate many of these symbols of the holidays with western countries, China incorporates many of these traditional elements into their Christmas decorations–with lavish, beautiful, and occasionally humorous results.
These decorations are so unique, we wanted to share a few pictures of them with you, as well as a glimpse into how BASIS International Schools celebrate the holidays. All pictures are from BASIS International Schools staff and teachers.
