Dear Hugh,
It has been months since the last time I heard from you. How was your winter break? I’m sorry that I was too busy to reply your letter. Now I have more free time because Tet Holiday is only a week away. Tet Holiday is our traditional festival, which is also known as Lunar New Year. It comes later than your New Year in Britain, around the end of January and the begin of February. Since Tet is our biggest holiday of the year, there are many special activities on this occasion. We clean and decorate our house with peach flowers to welcome guests visiting us because relatives ands friends usually come to see each other on Tet. We send wishes to people we love, especially to children and the elderly by giving them red pockets of lucky money. Therefore, Tet is the occasion Vietnamese show care and respect to others. This explains why Tet is the most favourite holiday to many people, including me. This year I even have an amazing plan for Tet Holiday. I am going to work at Vietnam Museum of Ethonoly as a volunteer for two days, hence I have the chance to enjoy Tet in many different ways of Vietnamese ethnic groups. Does it sound fascinating enough for you to be jealous with me? Don’t worry, I will send you some banh chung, our traditional cake on Tet holiday. Just kidding, dream on! Ngan
