Just out of curiosity... Why would Vietnamese be celebrating Christmas when most of them are buddhists, taoists, confucionists and caodists? There were catholics but not many as Catholicism didn't really start there until the 1960s . Something doesn't sound right here? I've gotten my material from:
Can anyone help me out here?
Catholicism was in Viet-Nam longtime and thru out the country.
It can with the French.
I think there may be more Catholics than you think. The President who was assassinated (Tuc) was Catholic.
Catholics, however, do not celebrate on Christmas Eve by firing weapons into the air.
