No returning to the UK for me either. I had to return there toward the end of last year for a short time and ending up staying longer than expected, and over Christmas. 'Whatever happened to Christmas! I bought the Selection boxes for the Carol singings not one called, so I ate the bloody things myself. Kept myself busy catching up with the 'need to do things' around the home and attending the needs of a couple of classic cars.
Here in CN I really don't do Christmas anymore, my wife gets more excited about it. But to be true, well really its just another day.

Christmas in Shenzhen is not the same as back home across the pond
Family will go out for a dinner and maybe exchange some presents

What makes it much different though is there are not alot of people saying Merry Christmas to you as you pass them by. Also it is much warmer here. No chimney for a stocking to be hung from(I know there are other ways to hang stockings).
I am me and that is something you will never be, no matter how hard you try!!

if you want something in life get off your backside, and do it yourself!! don't rely on others to do it for you
