A small inland city in east China's Zhejiang Province produces two-thirds of the world's Christmas decorations, ABC News reported.
Located one hour by bullet train from Shanghai, the city of Yiwu, with a population of 1.2 million, manufactured 3 billion US dollars worth of Christmas products from September 2016 to this past August.
Some 600 workshops and factories surrounding the city welcome peak production season every summer and the city has become known as China's "Christmas Village."
Some factories said that at least 30 percent of their orders are from the United States, while the rest of the goods adorn houses in Russia, Latin America, and China.
In order to receive all goods in time for holiday sales back home, traders from all around the world arrive in Yiwu months in advance.
Together with the city's 13,000 permanent foreign residents, they make Yiwu one of the most culturally-diverse cities in China.
Yiwu has the world's largest small commodities market, selling toys, decorations, underwear, housewares and auto parts. Freight train routes linking the city with Madrid, London, Prague, and Teheran have been put in operation in recent years.
