Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

If you're wondering why Shawn Dou is giving away apples , it is part of the holiday promos for his upcoming drama From Survivor to Healer and a growing tradition among Chinese people on Christmas eve. This stems from the translation of Christmas eve which is Ping An Ye 平安夜 in Mandarin and it can mean Peaceful Evening, Quiet Evening or simply Silent Night. The word Ping also happens to sound like the word for apple which is why the fruit has become a symbol for the occasion. 

That's all the trivia and celeb updates I've got for today. Wishing everyone a happy holidays. And yes, you can always count on Fan Bing Bing to embrace the festive season in style.
