Vietnam is encompassed by 54 different ethnicities where each brings its own flavor and brand of culture to the area. Some cultural traditions that span the entire country include the Vietnamese Martial Arts that are known as and governed under the principles of: Viet Vo Dau. The Viet Vo Dau combines many forms of the Vietnamese Martial Arts under one umbrella. The philosophy behind these arts are: “To encompass all humanity.” This a very beautiful tradition and part of the Vietnamese culture that shouldn’t be missed.
The Vietnamese are also famed for having gorgeous celebrations each year with some of the most prominent celebrations including: The Lunar New Year and The Mid-Autumn Festival.
The Vietnamese Lunar New Year or “ Tet” as it is locally named is a celebration of rebirth in the country. The name relates to the meaning of a Feast of the First Moring of the First day and is celebrated annually; normally around the same time as the Chinese New Year between January and February of each year. This celebration is similar to the North American New Year’s Eve celebration, although it is much longer in duration.
This annual “rebirth”: encourages the Vietnamese people to focus on the positives in their lives. The celebration focuses on a celebration of life’s joys and resolving old issues in order to make room for new possibilities and great things to come.
The Vietnamese people are a humble culture which is refreshing to see in our current times, a culture that maintains the integrity of honor and value of the Vietnamese people and all people as a whole. The Vietnamese place a very high value on family values, and traditions including honoring their ancestors which many cultures in our fast paced societies have gotten away from. Vietnam allows for you to bring that sense of family back. The Lunar New Year reminds us what is important in life and why we what we do.
The Mid-Autumn Festival is also celebrated here and is also on the list of major holidays that are celebrated in Vietnam. This annual festival serves as reminder to the Vietnamese people to be thankful for all that they have and is similar in nature to the North American Thanksgiving holiday. At the time of the Mid-Autumn Festival, people gather together to celebrate family, accomplishments made throughout the earlier year and say prayers for those blessings and successes that are yet to come. The festival is celebrated by sharing beautifully prepared meals, moon worship and with multi-colored paper lanterns. During the festivals, busy families take the time to reconnect and remember their importance to one another. This is one of the most prominent festivals celebrated in Vietnam, second only to the previously mentioned Lunar New Year, or “Tet” The festival is celebrated in the 8th month of the year on or around the 15th day on the night of the full moon between early September to October.
