Christmas in Loa: Luang Prabang & Vientiane

It’s always  around 40 centigrade for Christmas here in Oz, and never seems quite the place to celebrate Christmas especially with fake snow around the windows, so I thought I’d treat you to another odd place to have Christmas – Lao. 
Not only is it a jungle out there, but it’s also a strongly Buddhist country. Still, they obviously don’t mind popping up the Christmas Trees along the Mekong River in Luang Prabang or the odd reindeer and Santa Claus in downtown Vientiane. 

I particularly like the Lao version of what goes on top of the Christmas tree – clearly Christmas is all I about giving, so mine’s a pint of that, thanks. 
Greetings to all.
