Tet “Vietnam Lunar New Year” is the occasion for Vietnamese to express their respect and remembrance for their ancestors as well as welcoming the New Year with their beloved family members. Moreover, in the past, Tet was essential as it provided one of few long breaks during the agricultural year, which was held between the harvesting of the crops and the sowing of the next ones. To make it easier, one can imagine Tet as a combination of Christmas and New Year: every family will get together to have big meals, decorate Tet trees and eat Tet food but to welcome the New Year instead of a religious cause. Imprint on Lunar New Year festivities all over the country, Festive Vietnam Special Tour recently released by Insight Asia Travel marks almost popular destinations buzzing with Tet’s cultural activities.
Vietnamese people practice a lot of custom during Tet Holiday as visiting a person’s house on the first day of the New Year, giving lucky money to children and elderly people and more. Special treat for Tet is Square Cake – chunks of pork fat coated in mung bean surrounded by rice and wrapped up in banana leaves. Other local delicacies are pickled vegetables, candied lotus seeds and sugared fruits. The plate of five fruits, parallel sentences, the New Year trees and traditional Tet painting are part & parcel of Vietnamese New Year decorations. In order to pray for good fortune and happiness in the New Year, Vietnamese families pay a visit to the church or pagoda. There is an air of festivity everywhere with incense burned in the homes and a riot of color, especially the red which symbolizes good luck and happiness. Dragon dances and entertainment activities are organized at nearly every village and worth your visit.
