A Hong Kong Kind of Christmas

Chatteris' own Charlotte Bland on keeping the Christmas spirit alive in Asia.
It’s fair to say that Christmas in Hong Kong is a little different from Christmas in England...but that doesn’t mean you can’t still get yourself into the festive spirit, if you look in the right places.
Christmas Markets There’s been a plethora of Christmas Markets popping up in Hong Kong these last couple of months. One of my favourites was a smaller one called White Christmas Street Fair in Wan Chai (24th-26th November). Entry was free and they had lots of little stalls to buy gifts from, a stage with live music, a beautiful Christmas tree and a massive, flying ginger bread man overlooking the whole market. I’ve also been informed by a reliable source that the homemade pancakes are a ‘dream come true’. Most importantly however, this market had ALL THE MULLED WINE and is it really Christmas time if you don’t drink this stuff like there’s going to be a national shortage?
