Christmas in Japan

Part of my story takes place in Japan during Christmas time. I, unfortunately, know very little about this particular part of the year in Japan. I've read a tourist's point of view, and I've seen JDramas and anime that touch on it, but does anyone have a more in-depth experience? Maybe someone who's lived in Japan during the time?

Basically, I'd like to find out if it's a purely commercial holiday and what traditions (if any) the Japanese may have added to it. Any information is, as always, vastly appreciated. Thanks!

ETA: Thank you very much to everyone who responded! I'm even more fascinated with this than I was initially. Score. *g*
