As Vietnamese, we have so many holidays that impressed the tradition in a year. And for me, the most special time and holiday is the Tet holiday, which is represented for a new year and new begins. That also a time of reunion for all of us, people who work or study far from home, will go back home on this time. This is also a special time for all the Vietnamese, we will go back to our parent's home or our hometown to celebrate the new year with our family. The 1st day of the year is very important and be verified according to the Vietnamese calendar, so it's might be a little different from the Western calendar. For example, our first day in 2022 will be February 1st.

For me, it's not only a traditional holiday but also a chance for us to meet other members of my family. There are some cousins and relatives we just can call and hard to meet because they are working and living in other cities. Tet holiday is a chance for us to reunite and meet after a long time.

Besides that, prepare the significant things which only has in this occasion. We will prepare food and decorate the house to welcome a new year full of happiness and joy.
We will prepare the signature foods for this occasion, and depending on the region we might have a little bit different from the foods. However, most of us both have meat stewed in coconut juice, pickled scallion heads. And can't miss out on the watermelon and 5 other fruits which represent the fulfillment in money (custard apple, fig, coconut, papaya, mango) and good things will come.

The busiest time in the Tet holiday is 3 days before the Tet because we have to prepare everything before the 1st day. Market, supermarket or stalls in the street are so crowded and we can easily feel the atmosphere of this traditional holiday.

I really can not forget how I was excited to be back home on the Tet holiday and see other people are lined up to the plane to be back in Vietnam to celebrate the biggest and most important of Vietnamese in a year. This year might be a bit more special because we are facing a pandemic and some of the activities might be eliminated. However, I think that seeing each other and all of us are all good that is truly a big gift. Because pandemic gave a big loss to many people, we are all praying for this can be stopped soon and no more heartbreaking scenes happen.
Hope everyone will have a new year that fulfilled with all happiness and luck.

Tết lúc nào cũng là quan trọng nhất đối với người Việt Nam. Quay đi quẩn lại, lockdown mấy hồi lại hết năm rồi.
Tết về nhà thì thích đấy cơ mà nghĩ đến cảnh tàu xe chị lại thấy hãi luôn.

I can understand the concerns this pandemic has over our family traditions and with each each family gathering stopped or limited adds to our unhealthy emotional burdens. The prospect of Missing another Christmas with my siblings, nieces, nephews and especially the newborn is depressing indeed. I hope things will get better as well.

Ooo, Red envelopes too.
Thanks for sharing @winnietran 🤗

Yes, many plans have been postponed because of this pandemic and many people cannot meet their families for a long time, it's really sad. Hope this pandemic will be repulsed soon.
❤️ Thank you @kerrislravenhill and hope you have a good weekend.
