On Christmas Eve, hundreds in Shanghai joined a dancing Santa Claus for a very Gangnam-Style Christmas. Participants in the dance, which seemed to draw both a local and international crowd, performed the viral dance moves made famous by South Korean pop star Psy. The dance number was part of a holiday celebration including a Christmas parade, a rather rare sight in China.
