Europe -Although many people celebrate Christmas on December 25th, in France the festive season officially begins on December 6th – St Nicholas Day. It used to be the custom that on this day gifts would be exchanged but now the tradition has been postponed to Christmas Eve when Père Noël (Father Christmas) visits the well-behaved children around France.
Asia –On the mainland, the small percentage of Chinese citizens who consider themselves Christians unofficially as well as many other non-Christian individuals celebrate Christmas-like festivities. Many customs, including sending cards, exchanging gifts, and hanging stockings are very similar to Western celebrations.
North America -Christmas is observed widely on December 25th. Governments recognizing the holiday include those of: the United States, where it is a federal holiday for federal employees and a legal holiday in the respective states; Canada, where it is a nationwide statutory holiday; and Mexico, where it is also a nationwide statutory holiday.
Central America includes some parts of Mexico and Mexican Christmas is filled with over 30 traditions found only within Mexican Christmas.

Christmas is called Ledet in Eritrea or Gena in Ethiopia. Many people who are Christian in these two countries fast for 40 days (it is called fast of the prophets).
