The Christians will not agree that Christmas is about chocolate. However, for us who are not Christians, we can see that Christmas is about chocolate. The supermarkets are displaying the various nicely wrapped boxes of chocolate in prominent place. The minute you enter the supermarket, you will see rows and rows of chocolate. The consumers buy a lot of chocolate to give as gifts. Some of us like to make use of the special discount to stock up on chocolate for our own consumption. It helps that the weather is cooler than usual, and a bar of chocolate is very comforting in cold weather. I really cannot imagine a Christmas without chocolate.

Chocolates are consumed by families and friends. Since this happens, I hope in goodwill, then Christmas is about goodwill and love between family and friends sharing chocolate? sincerely, from a very sweet chocolate loving Christian

I just hope that we will see boxes of chocolate in the office. It has not happened yet. I hope that at least some of our suppliers will give us.

@Bluedoll Rum or nuts and raisins chocolate. I usually buy a big bar and break it down by rows so that I can make it last a week or longer.

I think any of the holidays can be about chocolate. If you think about it, there is certain chocolates for just about every holiday.

Not for us here in Asia. Of all the public holidays in my country, only Christmas is about chocolate. During Vesak day, many Buddhists have vegetarian meals for the day. For Chinese New Year, Hari Raya, Deepavali and other holidays, the focus is on the culture and the traditional food.

Real Christmas is more than a chocolate but yes we do give chocolates boxes to family and friends by doing that we share sweetness, love and happiness, most importantly we remember the birth of Jesus Christ and Glorify his name.

If only Christians celebrate Christmas, it will be a lively occasion. The fact is that many non-Christians want to get into the spirit, so they buy chocolate to eat or to give as gifts.

It is different here. Chocolates don't play a main role for our Christmas. In fact Christmas is even not our official festival but we still like it. It is more like a feast for us in this festival. We have one more reason to go out to have a big meal

haha, there is no need to find reason to go out for a big meal. There is a Chinese festival around the time of Christmas, and that is the Dong Zhi, the Winter Solstice Festival. That is the best excuse for having a great meal, since it is the shortest day and supposedly the coldest day of the year.

@scheng1 In my city people enjoy eating. And there are just so many reasons to go out to have a feast

Any reason is a good reason to eat chocolate. I thought it was mostly valentines day, but Christmas doesn't surprise me. Wait until after the holiday when the candy will be marked down. Then you can really stock up.

No, over here, the price of chocolate will not get marked down. Right after Christmas is New Year, and then follows by Chinese New Year. After that, it is Valentine's day. Many people will buy chocolate for different reasons, and the price will not get marked down at all.

@scheng1 You need to move, just for chocolate. See, whatever the question chocolate is the answer. Here, the candy that was wrapped or made specifically for that particular holiday gets reduced. Maybe it will have Santa on the wrapper, or say Merry Christmas on the box, but it is still good to eat.

Next year, Valentine's day and Chinese New Year are just a few days apart. I think the chocolate season in my country will stretch all the way from Christmas to Valentine's day. The week or so before Chinese New Year is the busiest period. Many migrant workers are going home, and they are likely to buy chocolate to bring back home.

I don't see chocolate in our grocery stores here. Chocolate is for any time as a gift, the actually holiday for chocolate is Valentine's Day

Chocolate Cherry Cordials are a favorite at this time of year or a box of Russell Stover Chocolate Mix is welcome in our Christian home during the holidays. We like to make fudge, peanut brittle, and divinity as well as cookies too!

Wow, that sounds like a very happy family with the same love for good food. Most of us here do not celebrate Christmas. Even if some do celebrate Christmas, it is not an elaborate celebrations.

No you can have chocolate at any holiday they just display it differently for each holiday. Christmas is about family and being together making memories. Gifts our nice also but i just love family time.

The price is different, and the varieties are not as good as Christmas season. Most chocolates do not have sales on normal times. When it comes to Christmas season, you can see all sorts of discount given for chocolate.

If you see one day that chocolate is out of stock in December, you can imagine the mood of the shoppers. I think chocolate is selling very well in all countries, not just in countries celebrating Christmas.

No, it will not. Chocolate never sells at lesser price after Christmas. About a month after Christmas, we have Chinese New Year. Many migrant workers will return home, and they will buy something before they go back. The smart ones will use the Christmas sale to buy chocolate at low price. The rest pay full price for the chocolate and bring it home.
