Chúc mừng Giáng Sinh (Merry Christmas)

The word ‘Christmas’ in Vietnamese is either Giáng Sinh or in some contexts the French influenced Nô en or Noel.

Christmas in Vietnam, however, is a strange affair. The cities bring out the Christmas sparkle and downtown is packed on Christmas Eve. But, aside from the Catholic minority, there is no purpose or meaning to the festivities and almost no-one has the day off work.

Snowmen in sweltering Saigon?! Christmas sure is weird in Vietnam.

Nonetheless…
