Can’t believe, the Saigonese are preparing for a very Vietnamese Christmas. After my long meeting at the Highland’s Cafe in Saigon Centre, I took these pictures of the Christmas decorations in front of Saigon Centre. I know for many outside of Vietnam, seeing scenes of Christmas in Saigon may be a bit shocking. Well, face it, for the last three years that I lived in Vietnam, the Vietnamese have celebrated Christmas in the same fashion as Americans. It is a big deal here and the closer Christmas arrives, the more chaotic it gets. The Christmas display in front of Saigon Centre is just a start the Christmas spirit here in Vietnam. More pictures are soon to come.
