Christmas is associated with eating and drinking to excess, and trips to the bathroom around this time of year can be dicey enough without adding queues for the loo into the equation.
For some unfortunate souls this Christmas Eve, a trip to the lake was like the nightmare before Christmas.
Many people flocked to the walking streets around Hoàn Kiếm Lake in Hà Nội on Christmas Eve, and there weren’t enough public toilets for the heaving crowd.
People had to queue up for dozens of metres to get into the public toilets.
One young man burst into tears while queuing, presumably due to an aching bladder and not because Santa only gave him coal.
Perhaps the lesson is Christmas Eve is best spent inside with friends, family and your own personal toilet. — VNS
