It's an optional thing and usually done by restaurants, as winter is a slow time in those businesses. The ski chalets down south make more out of it for the holiday makers as there is actually snow there.
We do it very occassionally I think about 5 times in my 42 years that I remeber. But have not done presents. It's more about the food and having hot meal, as I can tell you at 36*C and 90*humidity on christmas day, a hot meal is the last thing you think of! LOL
If it's going to happen then yes it can be all out christmas but you find then that christmas in December is a very small one.

Really it's up to the individual family not a must have.
