Têt season is upon us in Vietnam, and the festivities are in full force. We celebrated the holiday at school today with much fanfare. I am continually impressed by our students, and their efforts for the Têt celebration are no exception.
There was a ton of different foods to choose from and a wide variety of performances put on by the students.
Derek and I were "lucky" enough to be asked to preform in this year's Têt ceremony which meant that we had to sing a duet on stage together. Those of you who know me know that I suffer from serious stage fright, so this was a pretty big deal. I need to learn how to say "no" to my students...
Over on the main campus, Owen got to be part of the primary school's Têt assembly. Derek and I got to sneak away for a bit and catch his performance. He did wonderfully and seemed to really enjoy himself up there. Clearly stage fright is not genetic.
Learning the culture and rituals of Vietnam has been such an incredible experience, and I will definitely miss the Têt holiday next year. Here's to a very happy and healthy Year of the Goat!
