Christmas is a Christian holiday and not many Chinese people are Christian. So the Chinese celebrate Christmas, but most of people do not celebrate it for the same reasons that Christians do.

If you were to visit China during Christmas time, you'd see signs of Christmas everywhere you looked. One can find Christmas trees, lights, and other decorations on the streets and in department stores, particularly in urban areas. Attendance at Christmas Eve parties and celebrations has also become more and more popular.

Many Chinese people, especially the young men, celebrate this holiday by exchanging Christmas cards & gifts, hanging Chinese Christmas decobbbration at home, eating Christmas dinners in nice western restaurants (not cooking at home), attending Christmas Eve parties, and spending time with family and friends. There is Christmas shopping too. The stores will offer discounts and coupons to attract more customers. Although December 25th is not a public holiday, Christmas has become part of life for Chinese people in recent years.
They go about their daily business, because Christmas isn't a major holiday in China.
