Apples Indeed, in China there are no interesting cakes, puddings, or drinks to be served during Christmas celebrations. Now, what's interesting is that everyone who celebrates Christmas in China usually buys apples and they will give them to each other. Therefore, at Christmas, there are usually lots of vendors selling apples, in colorful wrappers. Do you know why in China they celebrate by giving apples? Because the Chinese language for Christmas Eve is "Ping An Ye", so the Chinese people hear the words "Pin Guo" which means apple, therefore apples are one of the foods that must be had during Christmas Eve celebrations, guys. This country is very unique.
