Third Place: Guangzhou, China

The people of Guangzhou are curious participants in Christmas.  Many young Chinese would dress in festive clothing and go to Sacred Heart Cathedral to take selfies and pictures during Mass and then leave after a few minutes. Just down the road was a market for buying everything associated with a commercial Christmas.
