Chinese Christmas Vocabulary

Chinese Christmas Vocabulary

It’s that time of year folks … tree lightings, special winter menus, and of course, the occasional Christmas carol (圣诞颂歌 shèng dàn sòng gē):

Oh, the weather outside is frightful,
But the fire is so delightful.
And since we’ve got no place to go, Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

Ok, it’s probably not going to snow; nevertheless, Christmas in the capital is still a jolly time of year.
