Not many people in Vietnam are Christians, but some people like to go to Midnight Mass services to watch the Nativity plays and here Christmas music.

For young couples, it's also chance to date and eat out. Thankfully, the holiday isn’t centered around shopping and eating out, students and young Vietnamese also exchange gifts and Christmas cards.
