Young people often go out for walks near the church to celebrate the Christmas holiday, or they can go to the stores to buy discounted items on this occasion.

There are many foreigners who are on a holiday or business trip celebrating Christmas with the Vietnamese at the church or with people in public places full off warm. Some offices or families opt for restaurants to enjoy the food.
