Tomorrow is Christmas Day, In Yiwu China International Trade City District 1, various Christmas
decorations with Chinese elements are very eye-catching.
Since late November, the Christmas market has shifted from foreign trade to domestic sales. A Christmas dealer Mr. Liu said, “this year, the domestic market is not bad, because during the latest two years we were all working to expand the domestic market and updating product style while improving product quality so as to make “foreign festival ” more suitable to Chinese tastes.
“Domestic sales is different from foreign trade, it’s necessary to add some Chinese characteristics. Santa Claus holding a Chinese knot sells well and some Santa Claus puppets dressed in Tang costume (six pieces a group) have been popular for many years and still sell well.” said Mr. Liu. Many merchants will search online before procurement.
