Today I’m going to tell you about one of the biggest, oldest traditional festival and has the widest popular range in Vietnam, which is Tet Holiday.
Tet marks (=celebrates) the arrival of spring and is the most important celebration in Vietnamese culture and it has the date falling in (which falls in) = takes place around late January or early February according to the Lunar Calendar.
Tết is also an occasion for family reunions. When Tet comes around the corner, most Vietnamese people return to their families to visit their family members, to worship at the family altar or visit the graves of their ancestors in their homeland as a sign of respect.
Many Vietnamese people prepare for Tet by cooking special holiday food which includes giò, xôi, canh măng anh banh chung - an indispensable (= absolutely necessary) dish that is tightly packed sticky with meat and mung beans filling, wrapped in banana leaves
Traditionally, every household is decorated by yellow apricot blossoms (hoa mai) in the central and the southern parts of Vietnam; or peach blossoms (hoa đào) in the northern part.
Many customs are practiced around Tet. Children often receive a red envelope containing money from their elders after giving them traditional Tet greetings. During Tet days people also visit relatives and friends to wish them all a happy new year. Local pagodas are popular spots as well, as people go there to wish for a better year to come for their families.
