Hybrid cultures: Christmas Chinese Style

Years ago, some in China feared the growing popularity of Western holidays like Christmas would chip away at the cornerstone of Chinese culture and identity. They asked why non-Christians should follow the trend and celebrate this ostensibly religious holiday.
Now, fear no more. Like everything else, Christmas has undergone a Chinese makeover. 
See an adaptation of Santa Claus. More pics here - don't miss the Great-Wall one!
