I am amazed by the generalized spread of Catholisism

I have been amazed by the fact that a lot of my friends in the Phillipines or from there, Africa, and Vietnam are Catholics rather than Buddhist's or some other type of eastern religion. The Catholic Church has done a great job of spreading their religious beliefs amongst those that they term heathen countries. I thought that a lot of eastern civilizations and their decendants here in the US would not celebrate Christmas and weren't under the Christian faiths and beliefs. I am a lapsed baptist, and though I have friends from places like Pakastan who are lapsed Moslems I had not realized that western beliefs had spread so far and wide.
