Brussels (VNA)
– Belgium’s French-language television channel BX1 has broadcasted a reportage entitled “Vietnamese people celebrate Tet in Woluwe Saint-Pierre” about the Lunar
New Year (Tet) that the Vietnamese Association in Belgium and the
Vietnamese Embassy in Belgium organised on January 22 in Brussels.

The reportage said that
about 400 Vietnamese people attended the traditional Tet festival
in Woluwe Saint-Pierre district where not only Vietnamese people but also
Belgians said to each other “Chuc mung Nam moi” (Happy New Year).

Visitors to the festival
had a chance to enjoy Vietnamese traditional foods and fruits, particularly
grapefruit – an indispensable fruit during Tet celebrations.

The channel’s reporter
introduced “banh mi” (Vietnamese bread) – a specialty whose name is included in
the Oxford Dictionary.

The festival was decorated
with parallel sentences or calligraphy brought from Vietnam.

According to the
reportage, hanging calligraphy is an indispensable decoration in the houses of
Vietnamese people during Tet. To write calligraphy, one must learn for many
years, and calligraphers look like performing martial arts when writing.

Besides, the Tet festival
included a peformance by an art troupe from Ho Chi Minh City. The reportage emphasised that about 5,000 Vietnamese people are living in Brussels and that
the Tet festival will take place for 15 days starting on January 22 which
marks the first day of the Lunar Year of the Cat./.
