Kim Đồng Publishing House, one of Việt Nam’s leading publishing houses for children's books, has presented new books to celebrate the Tết (Lunar New Year) festival in the Year of the Buffalo.
The show sums up the year's issues in Vietnamese society from good performances to bad governance, bureaucracy and corruption, all in a comedy performed by the country's top artists.
Cải lương (reformed opera) troupes in the Cửu Long Mekong) River Delta region are rehearsing for a slew of new shows that they hopes will prove to be fun for farmers watching them during the Christmas and New Year and Tết.
Private film companies in HCM City sunk large amounts of money into movies for release during the Tết (Lunar New Year) holiday with high ticket sales, while theatres saw less crowds.
One of the remarkable aspects of Tết is that it celebrates both personal and national identities. To celebrate Tết is to be Vietnamese.
A Vietnamese comedy now being shown in cinemas nationwide during Tết (the Lunar New Year) holiday is expected to do well at the box office.
Upcoming events in HCM City and southern provinces for Tết
As in previous years, when the lunar year comes to an end, the Friends of Vietnam Heritage (FVH) will host an annual lecture on Tết traditions on Sunday, January 27.
