24. T: Tet

Vietnamese Lunar New year is the special occasion in a year because it is the time for people to reunite beloved members of family. Normally, every family begin the preparation for Tet about 2 weeks to the upcoming  New Year. Cleaning our homes, decorating them with flowers such as peach blossom or sunflowers, and kumquat trees are involved in the preparation. During Tet , we come to greet and wish our relatives the best for a new year. Children always expect lucky money in red envelopes from their parents or relatives. I love lucky money, too.

Banh chung, a traditional rice cake or banh tet, pickled onions, chicken, and roasted nuts are also the symbols of Tet.
