2021 LUNAR NEW YEAR – YEAR OF THE OX – VIETNAMESE TET DURING COVID TIME IN THE USA
Tet during COVID time in the USA is definitely different than all the other years. But Vietnam have it even worse right about now, as they experience a major lock down in big cities. So the big Tet holiday this year is not so grand like all the other years.
This is my first year as a youtuber for Tet, and it taught me a big lesson in preparing the video weeks ahead of time. My plan was to make a recipe video on how to make banh tet and banh chung; Vietnamese traditional tet sticky rice rolls. But I hurt my ankle a couple days before and couldn’t follow through. No worries, I did manage to record a few things that I manage to do during this time.
The Vietnamese Tet tradition is a lot to remember. My mom still carries on this tet tradition here in America, and hopefully I learn from her to carry on the tradition. Though it is sad to think of what will happen next after my generation…
I wish everyone a HAPPY NEW YEAR! With great health, wealth, and happiness.
Mừng Năm Tân Sửu chúc cả nhà và bạn bè gần xa…
Sức khỏe như trâu,
Không ốm không đau,
Tiền vô thật mau,
Gom nhiều trân châu,
Ăn chơi thiệt lâu,
Du lịch Châu Âu,
Tình cảm đậm sâu,
Luôn yêu thương nhau.
Chúc mừng năm mới!!
