Christmas is celebrated differently all over the world. In the US and the UK, it is typically celebrated by decorating Christmas trees, wrapping gifts, hanging stockings for Santa Claus to fill, singing carols and feasting with family and friends.
That is a hard number to come up with because the traditions one family celebrates may not be the same as others. As many as 160 countries celebrate Christmas, a rough estimate would be about 2 billion.
