Christmas is celebrated all around christian world. But the customs are different in every country, as well as the wishes of the people. For example: People in Europe wish to spend x-mas under the coconut tree by the sea with the crystal blue water on tropical island. And people in Indonesia dream about the White Christmas in Europe, the best with a lot of snow.
In Indonesia, especially in Papua where is most of christian people, they built some kind of x-mas houses. It´s interesting to see them along (or above) the streets, more or less decorated with Christmas motives.
In Europe the x-mas seems more like shopping mania. It´s not like in Papua, where the custom of giving gifts or presents on Christmas are not normally done. But both – in Europe and Papua – the families are gathering and celebrating together.
