The joyful atmosphere during Tet is unmistakable, whether in the cities or countryside. In preparation for the biggest holiday of the year, individuals and families are busy shopping for new clothes and gathering food and beverages. After a year of hard work, people return to their hometowns to celebrate Tet and reunite with their families. Tet represents the diverse Vietnamese culture, showcasing cuisine, music, art, and social interactions through various customs and practices like ancestor worship, the making of sticky rice cake (banh chung), first footing (xong dat), wearing traditional long dresses (ao dai), performing traditional music and songs about Tet and spring, and engaging in folk games. Moreover, Tet serves as an opportunity to strengthen relationships as families warmly welcome relatives, friends, colleagues, and neighbors as guests. Furthermore, Tet beautifully reflects the ecological culture of Vietnamese people, emphasizing the reciprocal relationship between individuals and the land. Typical Tet dishes such as melon seeds, pumpkin seeds, banh chung, pickled onions, fruit trays, and decorative flowers and plants like peaches, apricots, and kumquats further demonstrate this ecological culture. Additionally, the New Year tree planting festival is a remarkable Tet tradition, originating from Uncle Ho and continuously promoted by subsequent generations of Vietnamese leaders. It signifies the country’s commitment to preserving its agricultural culture and biodiversity. In conclusion, Tet is a festival that encapsulates the distinct characteristics of Vietnamese culture.
