Finland also has a big tourist theme park called 'Christmas Land' near the said residence of Father Christmas. Finnish people clean their houses and decorate them for three holy days of Christmas including the Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and Boxing Day. The breakfast on Christmas Eve consists of rice porridge and plum fruit juice followed by decoration of spruce tree for the day. The 'peace of Christmas' is broadcast on radio and TV at mid-day while the traditional Christmas dinner at evening consists of macaroni, rutabaga, carrot and potato with cooked ham or turkey.

The regional influences can be seen in South India, where small clay oil-burning lamps are used as Christmas decorations and are placed on roofs and top of the walls like the Hindu festival, Diwali. In Northwest India, the tribal converts sing their special carols the whole night through and tell the story of Christmas to everybody. Mumbai has one of the largest Roman Catholic communities in India and there people create a beautiful Nativity scene as the people come to visit them and admire the artwork. Stars are the main part of Christmas decorations, often in the shape of stars.
