A dear friend of mine in Vietnam took me to visit a local area in Ho Chi Minh City which is known for their strong Catholic faith. Being mid-December it also means their Christmas celebrations are in full speed and they impressively have got street after street lined with decorations.
Even though generally the culture here follows Buddhism, they do take their Christmas decorations very seriously. They do not have a holiday on the 25th and Christmas Day is just another one at work followed by a family gathering in the evening if they are even to celebrate it.
Some you special ones go, (requested postcards), proof that I did send them, whether or not they get there though...
The Saigon Post Office is very grand in comparison to the Opunake Lotto and Post Shop, it seems strange to be sending something from there.
