As Christmas approaches, the streets of central Hanoi become colorful.

Christmas hasn't come yet, but its vibes have spread throughout Hanoi, especially on Hang Ma Street in the Old Quarter.

Shops in Hang Ma Street change their offers depending on the Tet holiday, Halloween, and Christmas. These days, Hang Ma Street is very lively. The street has been sparkling with Santa Claus costumes and garlands to await the celebration.

The glittering street of Hang Ma.

The street is one of the favorite choices of young people for selfies.

Lan Anh, a resident of Hanoi's Cau Giay District, said she went to Hang Ma long before the celebration because it will be very crowded on Christmas days.

A store has been brightened up with a Christmas-themed decor.

Many families go to Hang Ma together to buy Christmas gifts.

Hang Ma Street offers plenty of photo opportunities.

Wide range of products on offer.

A wide rage of products.

 With nearly three weeks to go until Christmas, Hanoi residents are jumping at the chance to celebrate early.
