christmas isn’t traditionally an important holiday, but the commercial aspects are gaining popularity among young people (how trendy). christmas lights everywhere, kitschy decorations… best of all: you can order a santa to come to your house (by motorbike, of course) to personally deliver presents for your kids (with the price varying on the quality of present you want). amusing to see several vietnamese (and hence, skinny) santas zooming by on honda waves on the evening of dec 24.
