Well, it’s still Christmas here.
(Actually, Christmastide extends through January 5, the twelfth day, and end with a watch service for The Feast of the Epiphany on January 6.)
In popular culture, Christmas is over.
Not in Hong Kong.
Stores are still displaying Christmas decorations. Western Christmas music continues to play from from tinny speakers in dim sum storefronts, from the over-amped sound system in the mall, in lobbies and in stores.
I’ve watched a slow transformation of point-of-purchase hawking from Christmas to Chinese New Year (January 28, 2017, based on the lunar calendar).
But Christmas is still here.
