Christmas in Hong Kong

Some of you have asked if Christmas is celebrated in Hong Kong. Yes it is. Christmas Day and the day after Christmas (Boxing Day) are public holidays in Hong Kong. In mainland China and at Erik's plant, Christmas is not observed. The city is very decorated, and many of the buildings have Christmas lights which make the skyline even more spectacular than normal. Most of these building light displays are animated which makes the pictures a bit blurry.

The HSBC building is normally red and white but is red and green for Christmas.I'll post more Christmas decor in the next few days. I have heard that the east coast has been having very cold weather. On Sunday, it was almost 80 here.
