A few pics of HCMC around the Chritmas season -- most of the hotels and shopping centers have done a good job in creating that festive atmosphere. For me, it'll never be Christmas here -- it's not cold enough.

In Cong Vien Van Hoa Park, a traditional Christmas scene has been erected -- very popular with kids and their parents to stop on the way past and snap some pics for the family album.
However, I am slightly concerned that these kids will grow up confused. They may come away thinking that Santa's slay was pulled by vicious dogs, that panda bears accompanied Santa on his magical journey, and that the guitar is a festive instrument.
