Photographer's Note

Hello everybody, today's Christmas day amd I want to say "Merry Christmas" all.

Every year, in Christmas Eve, many Vietnamese flock into churchs, cathedrals... And the largest number of people gather around Saigon Notre Dame cathedral (it looks rather like Paris Notre Dame because it was finished by French in 1880) .
Almost all areas around center of Ho chi minh city are crowded like there.
If you want to take part this event in Ho chi minh city, you must hustle in the midst of the press, this is not a traffic jam, this's really a "people jam". Maybe you don't want to think anything more, just a little crazy, fun, fearful and want to look for way out.
This "big event" often stops at midnight. Therefore you should bring water and food when you want to participate. :D
It's so great but it's too very crazy and strange feeling for visitors who are traveling in HCMC now. You will maybe remember this forever.

Thank for looking and reading.

Merry Christmas everybody.
