Hi, it’s Mariana! ❤
Welcome back to 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS BLOGGING! And today is Day 7 and Day 8 combined. Hope you guys like this!
Christmas Photo Day
Taken: December, 2013
Location: Somewhere on Earth
Background Story: Not much, actually. My mom’s company had a party, and since there was no snow in Vietnam, they put cotton balls and some other white stuff to make snow. It was cool!
Share a Local Christmas Tradition In Your Hometown/Country
1. Yule Log
Many things in Vietnam are influenced by other countries, especially France. So Yule Log is quite a thing at the Christmas Eve’s dinner. It’s also known as Buche de Noel, which is a French word for the Christmas cake that looks like a shape of log. It’s a really cool tradition!
2. Taking Pictures
Well, I’m pretty sure everyone universally does this. I lived in the city back when I was still with my parents, so most part of the city were decorated. Department stores, malls, or big buildings usually hang a lot of cool Christmas decorations, so many people tend to go out on Christmas day to take picture. It was super crowded, so I used to just stay home and watch a nice movie with the rest of the family.
This post reminds me a lot about my family in Vietnam, and I had a lot of fun doing this (I had to “consult” my mom for the pictures and traditions). 😀 I hope you enjoy it as well!
STAY TUNE FOR THE NEXT 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS!
