With such small homes, in such tall buildings, home Christmas decorations in Hong Kong pale in comparison to what the typical suburban home in the US&A might roll out for the holidays. No injuries from people falling off ladders trying to staple lights to the side of the gutters this time of year, 42 stories above the ground level for this metro area.
