The Western tradition has become more popular in Vietnam in recent years
Halloween has become more popular in Vietnam in recent years, especially among teenagers and twenty-somethings. This year many young children have joined the celebration.
These days kids in costumes have crowded Hanoi's Hang Ma Street, where shops sell a variety of items such as costumes, masks, wigs and jack-o'-lanterns.
With the accompany of their parents, children shop for accessories, or dance around, or pose for photos.
