Tet holiday is the most important festival of Vietnamese. All people whatever how far they live from their family should gather and reunite with their parent, siblings, relatives and friends. I will tell your about my Tet holiday memory and how I feel about this.
I did not use to like Tet holidays when I was a small child because my family was very poor. There are 6 people in my family and our siblings evenly didn't have new clothes to wear, show off with friends and lucky money too. I was upset and felt inferiority complex when seeing other neighbors' children has new clothes, gift and motorbike to visit and play but neither of my family. It is a very sad memory that I still remember until today.
When I grew up and graduated from the University, I come to Ho Chi Minh that is one of the biggest and the most growth city in Vietnam to work. I started to work hard and earned money to take care of my sister and brother studied in university. After 2 years working in Ho Chi Minh, I got a huge amount of bonus, I came back my family to enjoy Tet holiday, and that was the first happy holiday in my heart. I spent about two third of my bonus to build toilet and buy gifts for my family and visit my relatives and class meeting.
I currently got married and have a little boy. Now my house is built and much has better conditions than in the past. I am very happy and look forward to welcoming Tet holiday that I will not work, just relax and enjoy special meals such as round cake, corned meat with rice cake and many delicious meals made by my mother. I understand how hard I feel when living in a poor family and try to facilitate for my son to better grow, study and entertain.
