Christmas is exported good

The Chinese city of Yiwu in Zhejiang province is occasionally called the Capital Christmas decorations all over the world come here because most of the bulbs that illuminate the city on all continents.

Christmas ornaments are doing well despite the overall slowdown in industrial production in China, which occurred for the first time in three years, with exports of Christmas decorations went up by ten percent. And only in the last few years in Yiwu, the number of producers from eighty to six hundred.

Ornaments also increasingly do not leave Chinese territory, but adorns schools, hotels, shopping centers and offices. “With the regrowth generation born in the eighties and nineties has Christmas ever stronger influence of culture,” he told the Financial Times Jinlin Chen, head of the Association of Christmas products in Yiwu. Sale of ornaments in China is also one major advantage: at home, manufacturers can sell ornaments, paradoxically, more expensive than abroad, because the Chinese have no idea how much this Christmas lanterns should be. Unlike Europeans or Americans. “The domestic market is more profitable,” says Gong Yuequan of Youlide by Zhejiang Arts and Crafts Company.

gift called smartphones

As for gifts, this holiday would be a hit in China could become the new iPhone 4S smartphone from Apple. According to the newspaper China Daily China Unicom is the company that distributes phone, got the license sales in mainland China. The device can start selling in December, so befall shopping spree.

It will probably be strong, at least judging by the response from Hong Kong. The phone there after the October performances sold out online within ten minutes and at retail had to interfere with police.


Asian purses

Asians – although not one of their Christmas tradition – the issue presents a lot of money. Residents of China, Japan, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, South Korea and Australia as they spend an average of $ 570, as found among online consumers, Visa. Most residents spend in Asia, Singapore, and it averaged $ 840 per person. But if counting Australians who purchased gifts for the network is not sorry for $ 900.

Indians exchanged sweets, again Chinese red envelopes with money

Christmas is a Christian holiday, and most Asian countries do not report to the Christian faith, yet people in Asia during the turn of exchanging gifts. How do I look like Christmas in Asian countries? We asked reporters E15 in seven countries.

first What people give gifts for Christmas?

second What will this hit?

third There is a traditional Christmas meal, which will increase demand for some raw materials?

fourth Somehow affects the economic crisis this Christmas?

Beibei Yin, China

first In China, there is no tradition of Christmas, and thus no traditional gifts. According to the New Year’s tradition but give young people the old red envelope with money.
Second I’m sure it will be popular products from Apple. Third

China is too large to be able to appoint a single meal. On the north, but on New Year traditionally eat dumplings, so it will be great demand for wheat, pork and cabbage.
4th I have not noticed any change in mood. Some exporters focus on Europe did.

Tara Ha, Hong Kong

first Although Hong Kong is a blend of Eastern and Western cultures, we have a traditional Christmas or Christmas gifts. In stores run sales but mostly, Christmas is generally considered an ideal time for shopping and gifting loved ones.
Second There is something really major. Just eat with family and friends, and replace the gifts. Third
Unlike in the West do not eat the traditional Christmas food such as turkey. The people they go to a restaurant and celebrate holidays.
4th Most affected.

Sakshi Sharma, India

first Each family will share with neighbors and friends to bowl with Indian regional sweets. Another traditional gift we have.
Second None noticed the trend and I think it is not. Perhaps the trends associated with the festival of Diwali … third For the production of cookies are used rice flour, sugar and oil.
fourth Rather than a crisis affecting Europe’s Christmas preparations fear of a terrorist attack or a local conflict. The temples will certainly be more police officers for example, midnight mass.

Kounila Keo, Cambodia

first Wishes, toys and some teenagers they exchange packets containing some surprises.
second It’s hard to say. Celebrating Christmas was like when I was younger. Third
Most people eat meat, even though ninety percent of the population adheres to Buddhism. Fourth

I do not think European crisis may somehow affect the local Christmas.

John Narayan Parajuli

, Nepal

In Nepal, celebrated Christmas – except for a small group of Christians.

Adumyan Emilia, Armenia

first A common gift is clothing, cosmetics, greeting cards and funny souvenirs.
second no such thing.
third are Stolicni traditional dish salad, dolma, Armenian dish of minced meat in cabbage leaves, or blinĨik, which is a pancake. These dishes need meat, vegetables and fruits.
4th Every Day is affected by the crisis. During the crisis, people give small gifts and cook more modestly.

Tomoyuki Tajitsu, Japan

first Generally speaking, traditional gifts various dishes or furniture.
second Every year, the favorite food, alcohol and sweets.
3 .

Christmas is not our tradition.
4th I guess that given the strength of the yen against the euro exchange rate will be imported products more affordable.
