Do you eat apple?You must confused if Chinese people celebrate Christmas Day? 
The answer is YES, but because Christmas is not a public holiday in mainland China and most Chinese people are not Christians, only a small portion of people celebrate it. Having said that, Christmas is very popular in big cities of China such as Beijing, Shanghai, Xi’an, etc. and you can see many Christmas trees and decorations around Christmas time. Christmas is more popular in China’s Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan due to the foreign influence there before. 

How do Chinese people celebrate Christmas? In China, there is a tradition of giving apples on Christmas Eve. The apples are wrapped up in beautiful colored paper, but the price can also be ridiculous expensive, maybe 10 times or more than usual price. People give apples on Christmas Eve because in Chinese Christmas Eve is called 平安夜 pínɡ'ān yè (literally a peaceful and silent night), in which 平 has the same pinyin pronunciation as 苹 in 苹果 (apple). Other ways of celebration includes exchanging Merry Christmas in Chinese, going to parties with friends, appreciation of fireworks, and gathering with families, etc. 
That is How Chinese people celebrate,,if have any differences from yours.Anyway,hope you can have a nice Day and enjoy your Christmas.
