The special things of Tet.

Translated by Bing

Time passed quickly, before doing anything, blinked through a year. No matter how busy you are, Tet is coming and even if you don't like it, the new year is approaching. 

Year-end performance report

The Vietnamese have long believed that, every year until December 23, Apple Quan - Mr. Apple sits in the kitchen of each house and rides carp to the sky to report everything that happens in the family to the Jade Emperor. It was not until New Year's Eve that The Apple Army returned to earth to continue the work of taking care of his fire.

Mr. Apple's offering ceremony needs to be conducted before Mr. Apple flies to heaven, i.e. before 12:00 p.m. on December 23, so, depending on the time conditions of each house, it is possible to offer Mr. Apple before 1 day i.e. at noon, the evening of December 22 or the morning of December 23.

The atmosphere of the days bordering Tet

After the day of sending Mr. Cong Mr. Apple to the sky, the new Tet atmosphere was really clear everywhere. From indoors to the street, the influx of people such as festivals and holiday items has flooded markets and supermarkets.

Cakes have been received for half a month now, flower markets have opened throughout the streets, jubilant roses, purple violets, whipped trees have been shipped to display throughout the offices or houses. The smell of Tet and the color of spring are already very busy, it is very jubilant.

No matter how busy you are, everyone tries to buy a New Year's Eve and celebrate the new year as well as possible.

These days, going to the flower market to buy peaches, watch whipping, buy flowers to decorate the house is a hobby not to be missed. The house that has not had whipping, no peaches, it seems that spring has not reached the door. Watching the flower markets open all over the streets, people's hearts can not help but be excited.

Clean up, shop for new things.

In fact, people do not have to wait until Tet to move the house but as an old habit, the real house cleaning attack in the days leading up to Tet.

Clean the house, throw away the old ones, the broken, refresh your old house to welcome the spring to welcome the good omen. Because through the 1st day, people abstain from sweeping the house, sweeping the house, so the house cleans the fragrant smell, the person is cleaned of dirt with pots of fragrant leafy water. That's the peace of mind to welcome spring.

30th Tet dinner

Reunion, union is a phrase that is mentioned and thought in the mind with any child away from home. At the end of the year, when people are preparing their belongings to return home after a year away from work, whether the road is far away, traveling hard or may not succeed in work, life, home is still the place for anyone who has stepped out to wish to return home. There, no matter who you are, it's still your father's child, your mother's, your grandfather's grandchild. There's a country there. Therefore, the holidays with children away from home are very meaningful. It is an opportunity to reunite with the family, eat a union meal on the afternoon of 30 when everything of the old year is finished and rest in peace with loved ones.

1st day of temple ceremony

The first day of the new year is devoted to peace. People go out later, dress well, go to the temple at the beginning of the year, pray for a good new year. Then go to each other's house to wish Tet, eat a piece of jam cake. All year round, 3 days of Tet is a time to find each other, visit each other's lives, before anyone comes home and is busy with each other's life.
