In Vietnam Christmas Eve is often more important that Christmas day!

在越南,平安夜远比圣诞节重要的多!


In Ho Chi Minh city (which is the largest city in Vietnam and used to be called Saigon) people (especially young people) like to go into the city centre, where there is a Catholic Cathedral. The streets are crowded with people on Christmas Eve and in the city centre cars are not allowed for the night.

在胡志明市(越南最大的城市,以前称为西贡),人们(特别是年轻人)喜欢去市中心的天主教教堂。平安夜那天,街上人山人海,而且当晚不允许车辆在市中心通行.


People celebrate by throwing confetti, taking pictures and enjoying the Christmas decorations and lights of big hotels and department stores. Lots of cafes and restaurants are open for people to enjoy a snack!

人们用各种方式庆祝圣诞:发糖果,拍照片,欣赏大酒店及百货商场的圣诞装饰和彩灯。很多餐馆和饭店为了方便人们享用快餐都还在营业。


Not many people in Vietnam are Christians, but some people like to go to Midnight Mass services.

越南没有多少人是基督教徒,但有些人喜欢子夜弥撒。


Vietnam used to be part of the French Empire and there are still French influences in the Christmas traditions.

越南曾经是法兰西帝国的殖民地,因此在圣诞节传统方面至今仍受法国影响。


Many Catholic churches have a big nativity crib scene or 'creche' with nearly life size statues of Mary, Joseph, baby Jesus, the shepherds and animals.

许多天主教堂都有一个大的耶稣诞生婴儿床场景或是托儿所,这里面几乎涵盖了包括玛丽、约瑟夫、圣婴耶稣、牧羊人和动物在内一样真人大小的雕塑。


In some areas of Ho Chi Minh city, usually in Catholic parishes, people have big crib scenes in front of their houses and decorate the whole street, turning it into a Christmas area! These are popular for people to visit and look at the scenes.

在胡志民市的一些地区,通常在天主教区,人们家门前的婴儿床场景装饰着整个街道,使它变成圣诞区,人们很喜欢来这参观,看景色。


Happy Christmas in Vietnamese is Chuć Mưǹg Giańg Sinh. 

“圣诞节快乐”在越南读作“Chuć Mưǹg Giańg Sinh”(圣诞快乐)


Also like in France, the special Christmas Eve meal is called 'reveillon' and has a 'bûche de Noël' (a chocolate cake in the shape of a log) for desert. Vietnamese people like to give presents of food and at Christmas a bûche de Noël is a popular gift. Other Christmas presents aren't very common, although some young people like to exchange Christmas cards.

就像在法国,平安夜里最特别的一餐称为“狂欢”还有树干蛋糕作甜点(一种像树干的巧克力蛋糕),越南人喜欢用食物作礼物,而圣诞节时,树干蛋糕就是非常受欢迎的礼物。尽管一些年轻人喜欢交换圣诞卡片,但其他的圣诞礼物并不普通。


It's very hot for Santa in Vietnam and it can't be very comfortable wearing all that velvet in a hot country! Santa is called 'Ông già Noel' (it means Christmas old man).

圣诞爷爷在越南会很热,在这么热的国家穿着各式天鹅绒衣服并不舒服!圣诞爷爷在越南叫做“Ông già Noel'(就是圣诞老爷爷)
