Christmas, a time for family, god, gift giving...at least in the US. Here it is another day for lovers (they have more than any other country I think). You may think that it is because they are not Christians...and you might be right since in a survey 49% of people do not have a religion, but Christians make up the second biggest group with 26%.
I asked everyone about gift giving, and nobody I talked to said they got gifts but all the kids were trying to change that tradition. At some of the markets I did see toys for kids. My favorite gift were these painted hermit crabs...hard to see but these are live crabs which are painted.
