I hope my friends and I can find our direction in life this year, because we are at such an age that we should be looking for some improvement or growth in our work, as well as love life.

In Vietnam, we call The lunar new year is "Tet". This is the greatest time in year for every Vietnamese. Vietnam and China are neighbour so we have the same activities in this festival. Especially, in Vietnam, we have "lucky money". On new year days, the elder give lucky money to the young in order to hope that it will bring lucky to both giver and receiver. :)

All the students like me have about 2 weeks off to enjoy the Tet's festival with our family. in these days, we have a lot of things to do in order to start a new year. I hope that all my friends here have a happy, lucky and healthy year! :)

In my country, we also celebrate the new year. But the Lunar New Year is the most important and the biggest festival. It falls in late January or the beginning of February. Students are allowed about 10 days off. On the first day of the year, parents and children go to grandparents' home to visit them. We also have a cosy dinner there with the whole family (including 3 even 4 generations). These are precious moments because everybody is so busy throughout the year. The most expeted thing for kids is to be given lucky money from parents and relatives :)
