The weather is about 22-30°C during the time. Departments stores, cafes and public places will be a having Christmas decorated, even though only about 20% percent of the Indonesians celebrate Christmas. Christian people decorate their houses inside with artificial Christmas trees during December.
Many Christians go to the church on the Christmas eve as well as on the morning of the 25th. There are no presents as such, but parents will take their children to a department store to pick a “gift” every time after church attendance.
No specific traditional Christmas dishes are made, but as a customary for holidays, the Putri Salju, translated to snow princess, is sold everywhere. Ever tried a Vanillekipferl? The Putri Salju is similar in shape with all the same ingredients 😯
