Every year everyone is looking forward to celebrating the happiest and merriest season of all, Christmas! In Japan Christmas is also celebrated but not as a religious celebration, as there aren’t many Christians in the country. Only 1% of the Japanese population are Christian.
Celebrating Christmas in Japan is more of a time to spread happiness rather than a religious celebration. Regardless of one’s religion, Christmas is celebrated in the entire country and is enjoyed by everyone.
Most of the Western Christmas customs can also be seen in Japan and as usual the Japanese adds their own flare, making the celebration unique.
