Probably a typo. But, silly, "Christmas" does mean "Christ's mass," so using "christian" makes perfect sense. It's a Christian holiday.

Seedy will love it - he will once again get dressed up as a dandified prussian SS officer and mince around the market.

Bulgaria has no traditions of their own? And have to even import Christmas market idea from abroad? Absolutely absurd. As much as we love Germany (they are hard working good people which are example for Bulgarians to follow), we should be finding traditions with ourselves.
