In Japan, there are only a very few bunches of Christians residing over there so the Christmas celebration in Japan doesn’t include any sort of religious connotations. The eve of Christmas in Japan is often rejoiced and celebrated more as a couple’s day. Japanese people have a Buddhist monk called Hotei-osha who is considered as Santa Claus for the people of the country.
