Christmas, as an annual holiday, is also celebrated in Japan - without the religious connotations and an emphasis more on the Christmas Eve than the Christmas Day itself, though. Central to it are giving and receiving cards, presents and the typical Christmas cake to others to spread a feeling of happiness. The Japanese Christmas and its customs appear in the works of Gosho Aoyama a couple of times as a central plot element.
