The Old Quarter is tinged with glittering red color. The bustling atmosphere makes people feel more excited, helping them to forget the Covid-19 pandemic for a moment.
According to sellers on Hang Ma Street, the Christmas goods are abundant this year, including Christmas trees, reindeer carts, flashing lights, children’s toys, among others. The hottest sale item, however, is always the Santa Claus figurines.

Besides the traditional Lunar New Year, Christmas and New Year Eve have become the most joyful holidays that Hanoians eagerly wait for months during the year. 
These eye-catching Christmas wreaths are intricately designed. Their prices are varied, ranging from several tens of thousands of dong to hundreds of thousands of dong for an item.
Young families happily go shopping to adorn their homes, including expats.
