“Due to the complex development of the Covid-19, my family has encountered many difficulties. Being given a free air ticket to returning home for Tet is extremely meaningful to me”, Le Thi Thu Tham, a student at Ho Chi Minh City University of Social Sciences and Humanities and a Quang Nam-based resident said at a ceremony seeing off 3,000 students and workers with difficult circumstances to return home for Tet holiday by free airplane and car tickets.

Facing such difficulties, it seemed that I could not go home to celebrate Tet with my family, I exploded with joy as receiving free round-trip flight tickets from the “Mang Tết về nhà” (Bringing Tet home) program”, Tham was quoted by Thanh Nien Newspaper as saying.

Tet holiday – Vietnamese Lunar New Year or simply Tet Vietnam is the most significant festival in the S-shaped country.

Tet holiday is a spiritual opportunity for living people to invite deceased ancestors to join family gatherings. This is also an occasion for members of the family to reunite after a long year of working far from home. Whatever they do and wherever people are, they quickly find ways to return to their hometowns and meet their loved ones.
