National Independence Day
The National Independence Day is one of the popular celebrations in Vietnam. This celebration falls on September 2nd. It is the time when people celebrate the independence day of Vietnam. People parade in the street, visit historical places. I like this day very much. It helps me remember the past history of our nation and I feel proud of our nation.
Teacher’s Day is one of the popular celebrations in Vietnam. This celebration falls on November 20th. It is the time when students show their love and respect to the teachers. Students give flowers and best wishes to their teachers. I like this day very much because I have an opportunity to visit my teachers.
Women’s Day is one of the popular celebrations in Vietnam and in the world. This celebration falls on March 8th. It is the time when people celebrate the equality between men and women. Family members and friends give flowers and gifts to women.
It was a delight to me when I attended the celebration of last Mother’s Day at my cousin’s house. This special day falls on the second Sunday of May every year. This celebration provides the children with a special occasion to express their love and filial piety to their mother. This day is also the birthday of my cousin’s mother. On that day, my cousin bought a special present for his mother, a nice shawl. Moreover, he had special dinner with his mother’s favourite foods and with a cake, of course. Before the meal, his mother, he with all members of the family – his wife and children – gathered around the dinner table. We all sang ”Happy Birthday” to her. When the song finished, he and his wife gave the present to his mother and kissed her. Then his mother cut the cake. How touching this scene was! And I felt an indescribable feeling overwhelming my mind. This scene reminded me of my mother. I think this celebration should be observed by every child nationwide.
