Christmas is not an officially recognised holiday, apart from Hong Kong. Everyone will be at work, the schools and colleges are open as usual. There's plenty of decorations, lights and trees. It's rather seen as a prequel to Spring Festival/Lunar New Year, which is on Feb 10th. When almost everyone is on holiday, and goes home, sees family and friends etc.
