Dozens of couriers dressed as Santa are currently making their way around Chinese cities surprising customers with their food deliveries.
Driving on scooters, the Santa’s have been spotted distributing food in the capital Beijing, reported Huanqiu.com, an affiliation of The People's Daily Online. Drivers dressed as Santa's delivering other packages were also spotted in southwest China's Chengdu city.
Even though Christmas is not widely celebrated across the country, these deliverymen - dressed in the famous red suit and white beard - are bringing Christmas cheer to unexpected consumers.

Most of the deliveries are food packages and takeaways, but there have also been Santa’s distributing packages to online shoppers.
Even though pictures of the delivery Santa’s have been widely shared on Chinese media, it is unclear what companies they are all coming from.
One of them is Chinese e-commerce giant JD.com based in Beijing. The company recently started a campaign that entails all of its delivery drivers to dress up as Father Christmas when delivering packages during the holiday season.
Christmas in China is a fairly new holiday, with those who embrace it and those who know nothing about it. According to GBtimes, many see it as a shopping opportunity, but there are others who want to ban it entirely.

The popularity of Christmas in China reportedly started to grow in the early 90’s alongside China’s economic development.
One tradition that is fast becoming popular in China but has nothing to do with the meaning of Christmas, is giving an apple to a friend, relative or loved one as a gift.
They are usually given on Christmas Eve – December 24 – which in Chinese is called ‘Ping An Ye’. The word for apple is ‘Ping Guo.’ The two have no direct relation, they just sound similar.
