This is Sonya's third Tet (Lunar New Year) in Vietnam, however, she's still blown away by the traditional celebration and people's eagerness toward the country's biggest holiday.
"Every time Tet draws near, I have a brand new feeling and experience. Happiness prevails in every corner, I can feel this is a very special moment for all Vietnamese people", Sonya told VNE. "Even after 100 years have passed, each Tet is a new happiness, new miracle, new love".

Sonya was also impressed by the fact that each family in Vietnam owns a fruit-laden kumquat tree during Tet. She said the trees were beautifully shaped, their fruits were edible and there was no such trees in Russia and other European countries.
"It's very meaningful and cool. A kumquat tree or peach blossom not just spice up the house, they signal and usher in the New Year with good luck and new beauty", Sonya said.
