Karim at Amader Kotha writes about how Christmas is celebrated in Bangladesh, a Muslim majority country:

The Christian community in Bangladesh may be a minority when compared to the number of people following other religious pathways in the country, nevertheless Christmas in Bangladesh, which is a public holiday, is celebrated with great vigour. Christmas in Bangladesh is called ‘Bara Din (Big Day)’ and is celebrated in various ways in various regions of the country.
