Tet now is different from the past
Long time ago, many people used to have a concept “eating Tet” instead of “playing Tet” to name the activities they focused on Tet holiday. Tet actually had many specialties offering the ancients and welcoming the relatives, neighbors and so on to show the richness of the family as well as to wish a luckier new year. In the past, people usually asked each other “Is it a big Tet this year?”, “Are there enough square glutinous rice cakes, pork and pickled welsh onion?” Many people have complained that there were many rituals and customs on Tet holiday and they had to prepare many things sophisticatedly on these days.
But now, it is different. Presently, people are easy to buy new clothes, square glutinous rice cakes and other delicious dishes all year round. People also ask each other “Where do you go on this Tet?” or “Are there any special plans?”
Modern Tet is simpler for everyone in the family to have time to relax. The holiday is also extended for those who are busy all year, have a quiet time to calm down and take balance for their lives. But how to celebrate Tet warmly, traditionally and impressively?
Many families have options to welcome traditional Tet holiday on the first and second days of the lunar year, then all of them have travelled and experienced other regional cultures in the new year time. Just going around Vietnam and enjoying the beauty of the S- shaped strip of the land, people will have the feeling of a familiar life but still full of new experiences from many festival activities in the world.
