Merry Christmas to you too!

Didn’t know about the apple, googled it and found this:
Christmas Eve is translated as 平安夜, ping’an ye, which means a safe and peaceful night. And the word for apple is very similar (苹果, píngguŏ), making it “the fruit of being safe” in Chinese. Hence the reason for sending apples as Christmas gifts.

And Merry Christmas to you, too, GB!

I’m sorry but I don’t know much Chinese beyond “ni hao” and “general cho”, but I’d like to know who’s the hot chick with the antlers! Hamina hamina hamina…

Chinese word for apple, pingguo, sounds similar to the word for Christmas Eve, pinganye.

An apple is an affordable gift as a symbol of Peace. Although Christmas is not a celebrated holiday in China.

Merry Christmas to you!
