Tet Trung Thu


Dek and Mercy, age 2, celebrate the annual mid-Autumn Moon Festival (Tet Trung Thu). In Vietnam, the festival is geared towards children and as aptly titled to honor the lovely full moon. Kids typically dress up, have snacks and enjoy parading around the town with lanterns especially those shaped like animals like swans, butterflies and stars.  There are some kid-centric celebrations in the VA area that I dragged Derek to, but here he's just enjoying Tet Trung Thu with Cousin Mercy.  I also tortured him/Mike by teaching him a traditional song about the holiday which we sang for weeks at a time and almost made Mike go off that deep end hearing about Tet Trung Thu.
