TAIPEI, Taiwan—In front of the Miramar shopping center stands a towering Christmas tree blinking its white and blue lights as shoppers browse through luxury-brand purses, watch movies, or ride the 230-foot Ferris wheel atop the building. When I first spotted the tree from across the street, my heart leaped at the small reminder of the most wonderful time of the year on an island that doesn’t recognize Christmas as a holiday. With the weather in the 70s and work and school continuing all this week, it’s easy to forget it’s Christmas at all.
