At these days, driving in the streets, you can feel Tet is coming. The streets become more crowded and decorated with coloured lights and red banners. People are more hurriedly, busy buying gifts, cleaning and decorating their houses. Shops and offices are redecorated, look brighter. Some streets which are used to selling flowers become more colourful with many kinds of flowers..
An old saying goes: "respecting the elder, he will give you more ages". The simple saying covers a philosophy of life in Vietnamese society, reminding us of the traditional moral standard, that is filial piety to our grandparents and parents.
