Several expats living in Ho Chi Minh City have shared their stories about Christmas celebrations with Tuoi Tre News as the holiday nears. My husband and I have been living in Vietnam for over six years, and I've celebrated four memorable Christmases and New Year's holidays in Ho Chi Minh City. I remember my first Christmas in Vietnam. It was December 24, 2008 and Vietnam had just won the AFF Championship. Most of Le Duan Street and the area surrounding the Notre Dame Cathedral had thousands of motorbikes with fans cheering and waving Vietnamese flags.

It was only two weeks before Christmas and Nguyen Thi Yen Nga had little standing room to snap photos in front of a large pine tree and Santa outside HCM City’s tallest building, the Bitexco Financial Tower.

by Di Li "Sorry, we're fully booked as of yesterday. You should have placed your order much earlier. We'll be happy to serve you next Christmas; you should call at least one week in advance," said the public relations officer. His tone was polite and sympathetic. The receiver in Quyen's hand seemed heavier than usual. It was her thirty-first call, which was also the last possibility on the Gift Services page of the telephone directory. In recent years, demands for Santa Claus services had been on such a remarkable rise that the number of actors in the city who could play the role could not meet demand. A few days before the cold monsoon wind started to bring its drizzle in place of the hot, dry autumn sunshine, Fathers Christmas dressed in red could be seen riding to and fro in the crowded streets. However, busy with her year-end book-keeping, she totally forgot to place an order for the service in advance. *** It was 3 o'clock sharp in the afternoon but her company was already … [Read more...] about The Proposal On Christmas Eve
